This course provides students with an in-depth understanding of the consturction design process. Students will complete a series of increasingly complex construction design projects in which they incorporate all aspects of the construction process, including zoning and regulation requirements; surveying; and project planning. Students will use design software to generate site plans (topography) as well as detailed building plans. The use of portfolios is introduced as a means of showing the developmental stages of a design project. Students will use 3D computer software to complete projects.
