Today we spoke about the fire rating.

How do you describe the fire rating of the walls? By hours. What does it mean? How long the fire takes in order to go through the material. We applied our knowledge to our recent Gym project and we noticed that as you exiting the building the fire rating is higher.

Last week of class we all learned that doing our assignment on time was a better way to obtain good presentations in our projects better than be rushing at the last minute.  

Over all, this semester (fall 2011) we learned and developed abilites to work on Revit and AutoCadd (more Revit than Autocadd). Which i think is a valuable step to know the programs, that i am sure will help us in the future.
