Introduction 
The design process is ongoing from conceptual design stage right through to construction. The preparation 
of construction drawings plays an important role in this process.
2 
Objectives of Project 
The objectives of this project are as follows: 
• To introduce basic principles and procedures of construction process through real life project 
(experiential learning) 
• To understand the sequence and coordination of construction at site 
• To expose students to construction technology/methods responding to site context 
• To allow student to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of construction, material and 
technology 
• To train students to produce manual sketches, drawings and detailing relating to EXISTING 
construction 
Learning Outcomes of this Project 
• Produce a complete documentation (pictures, sketches and drawing) and analysis of construction 
elements 
• Understand and explain construction elements and its components. 
• Understand current construction technology on local construction sites 
• Explain current material and technology in relevance to present construction industry 
Tasks - Methodology 
Your task is to select ongoing construction site which visibly covers most of subject topics covered in the 
syllabus. Your selected sites should be medium rise or low rise buildings eg. bungalow, terrace houses or 
maximum 4-storey building. 
To identify different types of building elements and its construction process, details and materials. You are 
to study and record construction of different building elements, which you have learnt in this module. In 
specific, you should be able to show and apply your knowledge in the details of the building construction 
drawing that you should provide a reflecting your understanding of the construction itself. 
Document (Visual images, Annotated Sketches and drawings) 
• Construction process, methods, material, site context 
• Documentation should be in the form of pictures, sketches, drawings and written 
Analyse and Explain 
• Specification of material used in construction 
• Dimensions and sizes of components 
• Standards of descriptions 
• Procedures of constructing the components 
• Construction response to site context (environmental issues related to sustainable development)
3 
Submission Requirement 
• A3 bound report complete with visuals, sketches and manual drawings inclusive of the detailing 
and documentation of your project. 
• Visuals / Photos used in the submission must be clear and well communicated. 
• Sketches are meant to provide visual documentation and communication. Therefore sketches are 
required to be neat, clear and annotated. 
• Manual drawings of all construction elements covered in this syllabus. 
• Assumptions can be made through references from books/drawings. DO NOT PLAGIARISE. 
Application must be according to site context. 
• Softcopy is required to be attached with the hardcopy.

  • 1. SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE, BUILDING & DESIGN Modern Architecture Studies in Southeast Asia (MASSA) Research Unit Bachelor of Science (Honours) (Architecture BUILDING CONSTRUCTION 1 [ARC 1523] Prerequisite: None _____________________________________________________________________ Assignment 1: Experiencing Construction: Experiencing, documentation and analysing CONSTRUCTION PROCESS 40 % of final marks (30% teamwork and 10% individual) 1 Assessments Type Learning Outcomes Marks Presentation Submission Project 1 Team Work Individual 1-4 30% 10% - - Introduction The design process is ongoing from conceptual design stage right through to construction. The preparation of construction drawings plays an important role in this process.
  • 2. 2 Objectives of Project The objectives of this project are as follows: • To introduce basic principles and procedures of construction process through real life project (experiential learning) • To understand the sequence and coordination of construction at site • To expose students to construction technology/methods responding to site context • To allow student to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of construction, material and technology • To train students to produce manual sketches, drawings and detailing relating to EXISTING construction Learning Outcomes of this Project • Produce a complete documentation (pictures, sketches and drawing) and analysis of construction elements • Understand and explain construction elements and its components. • Understand current construction technology on local construction sites • Explain current material and technology in relevance to present construction industry Tasks - Methodology Your task is to select ongoing construction site which visibly covers most of subject topics covered in the syllabus. Your selected sites should be medium rise or low rise buildings eg. bungalow, terrace houses or maximum 4-storey building. To identify different types of building elements and its construction process, details and materials. You are to study and record construction of different building elements, which you have learnt in this module. In specific, you should be able to show and apply your knowledge in the details of the building construction drawing that you should provide a reflecting your understanding of the construction itself. Document (Visual images, Annotated Sketches and drawings) • Construction process, methods, material, site context • Documentation should be in the form of pictures, sketches, drawings and written Analyse and Explain • Specification of material used in construction • Dimensions and sizes of components • Standards of descriptions • Procedures of constructing the components • Construction response to site context (environmental issues related to sustainable development)
  • 3. 3 Submission Requirement • A3 bound report complete with visuals, sketches and manual drawings inclusive of the detailing and documentation of your project. • Visuals / Photos used in the submission must be clear and well communicated. • Sketches are meant to provide visual documentation and communication. Therefore sketches are required to be neat, clear and annotated. • Manual drawings of all construction elements covered in this syllabus. • Assumptions can be made through references from books/drawings. DO NOT PLAGIARISE. Application must be according to site context. • Softcopy is required to be attached with the hardcopy. Suggested Format of A3 Report/Documentation Cover page- Name and student ID number should be written clearly (TU Logo) Table of Content Introduction of site Findings and Explanation: Construction activities Construction elements Plants and machineries (no sketches only pictures) Referencing (MUST) Example content page No. Chapter Page 1.0 1.1 2.0 2.1 3.0 3.1 4.0 4.1 4.2 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 6.0 7.0 6.1 6.2 7.0 Introduction Introduction of site Site and Safety Plants and Machinery External Work Setting out and Earth work Foundation Foundation type and construction process (from site visit) Foundation type and construction process (from reference) Superstructure (from site visit and reference) Beam and Column Slab Wall Staircase Doors and Windows Roof Roof type and construction process (from site visit) Roof type and construction process (from reference) Summary Reference 1-2 3 4-6 7-8 9 10-12 13 14-16 17-18 19 20-22 23-25 26-28 29-30 31-32 33-34 35-36 37-38 39 At the content page, group members must indicate which component they are responsible for: Example: Foundation Page 4-7 (LXS*) *LEE XIA SHENG
