HND Arch Technology - Group A
Over the past two years the students have been involved in project-based, design-led units such as Conversion and Adaptation of Buildings, CAD Architecture and 3D Modelling, with an emphasis on construction detailing, from domestic to commercial buildings.
This project-based learning is further supported by theoretical learning including topics such as design of building structures, fire safety and architectural procedures. Finally, these project and theoretical skills are brought together in a practical final project.
This year the learners have focused on wellbeing, firstly designing for dementia. Following that designing a Maggie Centre, a centre which gives people suffering with cancer a safe and comfortable place allowing them to escape and recharge. The students have also focused on sustainable construction through offsite construction.
