Module overview

In this module you will apply your theoretical knowledge and practical skills to the conceptual and detailed design of a significant design problem.

CENV2028 Design 2 introduced you to site analysis, conceptual design and project planning. You will spend time at the start of your project defining the constraints and loads acting on your structure, and its location and dimensions, before developing alternative and appropriate concepts. In this module, you will be taking the designs further, into more detailed stages, involving analysis and calculations to determine loads and constraints on structures and to size structural components (beams, columns and foundations) and their connections, and ensure that the components perform in an integrated way to provide an effective and efficient structure. You will be spending most of your time on detailed design calculations, drawings and construction methods for your chosen concept. Your detailed design will be presented as a report, a set of design calculations, AutoCAD drawings, and a group presentation.
