We have no classes the next two Tuesdays. Both of these assignments are due to be uploaded by Wednesday evening Oct 2nd. You have all chosen to present on the same day so we will spend the entire class on the materials presentations. You still must complete and upload the Revit Progress set – both the Revit file and a PDF.
- Revit Progress Drawings
- All Levels
- All Grids – add dimensions for grid line spacing and overall
- Add floor slabs – concrete on metal deck (level 1 to roof)
- Add slab on grade for basement. If you building has no basement add one.
- Add the structural foundation wall – add the structural footing
- Add an exterior wall that runs from Level 1 to 3 feet above the roof level
- Create two sheets using 22 x 34 title blocks
- Layout a floor plan at 1/8″ scale
- Layout the exterior elevations at 1/8″ scale
- Upload both the Revit file and a PDF of your two sheets.
Project Presentation has two parts – the building itself and then the proposed materials. This should be a PowerPoint or PDF that is uploaded to blackboard. If you work as part of a team then you may work on a single presentation. It is also possible to work on a shared presentation on the building but separate presentations for materials. I would prefer this division – where each of you attempts to select different materials. You should include the glass curtain wall and at least 2 options for solid materials (non-transparent). You are not allowed to use either brick masonry or stone masonry building, or precast concrete or poured in place concrete for the facade of the building. Visit your building and take a lot of photographs. In particular look for joints of materials, look for how they are fastened – look for where they transition from one material to another.
- Project Presentations (as a group or individual)
- Include Site Plan
- Include floor plans
- Include Exterior Elevations
- Include photographs of the building- you must visit the building and document it for this presentation.
- Materials Presentation Case Study (as an individual)
- This presentation can either be photos of the existing building to clarify the materials or may be photos of other buildings if you will be changing the materials. If you are working as part of a team each of you must select different materials so that we can contrast and compare.
- You can take photos of other buildings that interest you – even if you are unsure of the materials.
- You can visit manufacturers websites showing materials you are interested in working with –
- Each of you must show 1 glass curtain wall selection and at least 2 solid (non-transparent) choices. Consider more. If you are a team of three that means you are showing a minimum of 6 solid materials.
There will be two separate locations in blackboard for the uploads – one for Revit progress and the second for the Materials Case Studies. If you work as a team only one of you needs to upload the shared PowerPoint by the deadline. In the notes list the names of your team members. Also make sure that you have a title slides that shows the name of your project and the names of your team mates – with photos of each of you – On individual slides put initials to indicate who on the team contributed to its creation.
