About this Unit
This unit provides students with an introductory overview of the way in which scientific principles impact on the structure, fabric and performance of the built environment. Areas covered will include the concepts of force, energy and work in building structures; properties of common building materials; and significant aspects of heat, light and sound in buildings. All the theoretical content will be contextualised within examples drawn from the construction industry. Students will be able to recognise the critical data required for practical decision-making in the area of building technology.
