Overview

This unit will provide students with knowledge of the specialist forms of construction and complex statutory controls and their relevance to high-rise buildings. Students will learn how integrated design and development of building systems, structure and services can be facilitated using Building Information Modelling (BIM). They learn how to analyse, interpret and present the fundamentals of conventional and innovative construction details. They learn how to identify and specify Federal, state and city council local mandatory regulation and how to apply them in design and development of high rise buildings.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Critically analyse, interpret and present the fundamentals of conventional and innovative construction details for buildings;
  2. Discriminate and prescribe compliance requirements for design and development of high rise buildings;
  3. Interpret and apply federal, state and local building regulations, codes and standards in high rise building design and development with real world projects;
  4. Adapt integrated design and development of building systems, structure and services and how this integration can be facilitated; and
  5. Critically review building regulatory procedures, codes and standards to present graphical and written designs and specifications details for different high rise development scenarios.
