Course description

The primary goal of the bridging module project is to prepare students for their integration into the Architecture, Project and Facility Management (APFM) program. This will involve the development of a project that will exercise the skills necessary to create and present an informed proposal for the renovation of an existing building to accommodate a new occupancy. The project will investigate, in teams, the many aspects that support an architectural project including: codes and regulations, performance criteria related to occupant requirements, material selection and building assembly, integration of HVAC and other systems and application of precedence research. The focus will be to develop an awareness of broad perspective that APFM studios bring to project development.
