Introduction 
Outcomes 
This project is a continuation of the first project-an integrated project where it involves 
construction detailing solution for Project 2b in Architecture Studio 2. This project is 
designed to allow the demonstration of knowledge and understanding of construction 
and application from prior project. Emphasis in producing related manual construction 
drawing for STEEL and/or TIMBER detail and specification. 
Technical knowledge is viewed as something separate from design. One of the aims of 
this assignment is to develop an awareness and understanding of the strong inter-relationship 
between these two areas of study. Critical success of any design project 
relies on a designer’s ability to address issues of appropriate methods of construction, 
integration of structure and the selection of materials whilst addressing the many other 
complex issues that are part of the design process.
This assignment will enable you to develop and demonstrate some knowledge of 
construction, materials and structural theory in a small scale design project. 
2 
Objectives of Assignment 
• To develop an understanding of the structural elements in construction and its 
application in the construction industry. 
• To apply suitable construction elements, material and detail/joint solutions 
suitable for a specific design. 
• To demonstrate a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of build ability. 
• To demonstrate awareness of how buildings are developed in response to 
practical considerations. 
• To demonstrate certain level of manual drawing and sketching skills. 
• To allow student to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of 
construction, material and technology. 
• To encourage students to produce manual sketches, drawings and detailing 
relating to construction. 
Learning Outcomes 
• Select suitable structural elements for their design project. 
• Design and apply a structural element for their design project. 
Tasks - Methodology 
Explore, Apply, Document and Explain. 
Moving on from documentation and analysis of construction process and activities this 
assignment focuses on the demonstration of knowledge that you have acquired earlier 
on. This second assignment emphasizes on proposing details for certain section of a 
building, both structural and architectural detailing. 
Your task is to identify and propose THREE (3) numbers of details for selected element 
or part of the building apart from providing the necessary plans, section and elevations. 
The 3 ARCHITECTURAL DETAILINGS must cover the following design in your studio 
project: 
1) Roof 
2) Superstructure (wall/slab/staircase etc) 
2) Joint and connection 
You are to strictly draw the details manually and NO computer aided drawings will be 
accepted. Your details are to have appropriate SPECIFICATIONS, SYMBOLS, 
DIMENSIONS, and to reflect the proposed materials clearly. Your selected detail should 
be details of interesting construction solutions for you design. DO NOT PROVIDE THE 
ORDINARY DETAILS.
Particularly, you should be able to show and apply your knowledge in the details of the 
building construction drawing that you should provide and reflect your understanding of 
the construction itself. 
DURING TUTORIALS SESSIONS, bring the following:- 
• Your proposed design-sketches, drawing and model. 
• No more than one (1) typewritten A2 page summarising your research into your 
proposed material(s) for the walls, floor and roof and construction system. This 
will include: a description of the material/product and its properties; standard 
sizes for the product; any additional relevant technical information on the product 
which may be useful for designing and building. Please provide appropriate 
detailed references for the sources of all your information in your typewritten 
submission. MUST BE IN HARDCOPY. 
Drawings (Visual images, Annotated Sketches and drawings) 
• Construction process, methods, material, site context 
• Documentation should be in the form of pictures, sketches, drawings and written 
3 
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) 
Submission Requirement 
• A2 presentation board containing the following: Scaled, manually drafted, 
drawings of your developed scheme showing the integration of the construction 
systems proposed, including site section (as per studio requirement or scale 1:50.) 
• Provide at least one cross section at 1:20 (or appropriate scale) 
• 3 nos. of detail drawings of selected elements. 
• Specifications of materials. 
• Complete Project 2 tutorial log sheet. 
• Drawing and sketches are meant to provide visual documentation and 
communication. Hence they are required to be neat, clear and annotated. 
• Assumptions can be made through reference from book/drawings. 
• DO NOT PLAGIARISE. Application must be according to site, design and climate 
context. 
Suggested Format/content of A2 Presentation Board 
Proposed detailing (DRAFTED MANUALLY AND SCALED) 
Specification of materials annotated in drawing (type, dimension and etc) 
Referencing (MUST)
4 
Assessment criteria 
The assessment for this assignment will be based on your 
• demonstrated understanding of the brief 
• quality of the documentation of drawings and detailing of the construction elements.

Building con 1 (arc 1523) project 2 brief aug 2014 (1)

  • 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 2: Construction Detail and Specification 30% of final marks (Individual Work) Marks Presentation Submission Project 2 Individual 5 & 6 30% - Week 13 1 Assessments Type Learning Introduction Outcomes This project is a continuation of the first project-an integrated project where it involves construction detailing solution for Project 2b in Architecture Studio 2. This project is designed to allow the demonstration of knowledge and understanding of construction and application from prior project. Emphasis in producing related manual construction drawing for STEEL and/or TIMBER detail and specification. Technical knowledge is viewed as something separate from design. One of the aims of this assignment is to develop an awareness and understanding of the strong inter-relationship between these two areas of study. Critical success of any design project relies on a designer’s ability to address issues of appropriate methods of construction, integration of structure and the selection of materials whilst addressing the many other complex issues that are part of the design process.
  • 2. This assignment will enable you to develop and demonstrate some knowledge of construction, materials and structural theory in a small scale design project. 2 Objectives of Assignment • To develop an understanding of the structural elements in construction and its application in the construction industry. • To apply suitable construction elements, material and detail/joint solutions suitable for a specific design. • To demonstrate a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of build ability. • To demonstrate awareness of how buildings are developed in response to practical considerations. • To demonstrate certain level of manual drawing and sketching skills. • To allow student to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of construction, material and technology. • To encourage students to produce manual sketches, drawings and detailing relating to construction. Learning Outcomes • Select suitable structural elements for their design project. • Design and apply a structural element for their design project. Tasks - Methodology Explore, Apply, Document and Explain. Moving on from documentation and analysis of construction process and activities this assignment focuses on the demonstration of knowledge that you have acquired earlier on. This second assignment emphasizes on proposing details for certain section of a building, both structural and architectural detailing. Your task is to identify and propose THREE (3) numbers of details for selected element or part of the building apart from providing the necessary plans, section and elevations. The 3 ARCHITECTURAL DETAILINGS must cover the following design in your studio project: 1) Roof 2) Superstructure (wall/slab/staircase etc) 2) Joint and connection You are to strictly draw the details manually and NO computer aided drawings will be accepted. Your details are to have appropriate SPECIFICATIONS, SYMBOLS, DIMENSIONS, and to reflect the proposed materials clearly. Your selected detail should be details of interesting construction solutions for you design. DO NOT PROVIDE THE ORDINARY DETAILS.
  • 3. Particularly, you should be able to show and apply your knowledge in the details of the building construction drawing that you should provide and reflect your understanding of the construction itself. DURING TUTORIALS SESSIONS, bring the following:- • Your proposed design-sketches, drawing and model. • No more than one (1) typewritten A2 page summarising your research into your proposed material(s) for the walls, floor and roof and construction system. This will include: a description of the material/product and its properties; standard sizes for the product; any additional relevant technical information on the product which may be useful for designing and building. Please provide appropriate detailed references for the sources of all your information in your typewritten submission. MUST BE IN HARDCOPY. Drawings (Visual images, Annotated Sketches and drawings) • Construction process, methods, material, site context • Documentation should be in the form of pictures, sketches, drawings and written 3 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) Submission Requirement • A2 presentation board containing the following: Scaled, manually drafted, drawings of your developed scheme showing the integration of the construction systems proposed, including site section (as per studio requirement or scale 1:50.) • Provide at least one cross section at 1:20 (or appropriate scale) • 3 nos. of detail drawings of selected elements. • Specifications of materials. • Complete Project 2 tutorial log sheet. • Drawing and sketches are meant to provide visual documentation and communication. Hence they are required to be neat, clear and annotated. • Assumptions can be made through reference from book/drawings. • DO NOT PLAGIARISE. Application must be according to site, design and climate context. Suggested Format/content of A2 Presentation Board Proposed detailing (DRAFTED MANUALLY AND SCALED) Specification of materials annotated in drawing (type, dimension and etc) Referencing (MUST)
  • 4. 4 Assessment criteria The assessment for this assignment will be based on your • demonstrated understanding of the brief • quality of the documentation of drawings and detailing of the construction elements. • appropriate use of drawing standards eg symbols, dimensions and specifications. • quality and clarity of your drawings. Marking criteria Marks shall be distributed as follows: Total marks (30marks) Drawings (Manual Details and Annotated) • Clear and appropriate proposed detaile 50% • Clarity and annotation in drawing and details • (Dimensions and sizes of construction element) 20% • Use of appropriate symbols of construction materials 10% • Demonstration (thru detailing) of understanding Construction response to site context 10% Referencing & Format • Appropriate format and sufficient referencing 10% References 1.
