About this Unit
In this unit, students who have a record of superior performance in the Building Design Management program, will source a suitable design project at their own initiative, to complete as a capstone work which illustrates the skills they have developed throughout their study program. The project will contain a high level of complexity exceeding that of previous building designs produced in the program. Both the complexity level and the number of design constraints will distinguish the project undertaken for this unit from the non-honours stream unit. Diverse stakeholder input on the project's impact will be gathered and assessed. The design solution generated will show mastery of complex design problems which integrate technical knowledge with economic and social responsibility. Superior skill in resolving design conflicts will be demonstrated.
