BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course covers the principles of building construction encompassing the study of materials, processes and construction techniques involving wood frame and masonry concrete from footing, foundations, walls, floors to ceilings and roofs of which the functional construction design problems and presentation techniques are presented. Autodesk Revit Architecture is introduced to develop a building model illustrating how the building components integrate and interact.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term, subscribe to receive email updates or
contact us with your comments or questions.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Read and interpret building plans: site, architectural layout, and structure
Describe the design and construction components of common vertical circulation systems: stairs and elevators
Describe the physical and thermal characteristics of building enclosures: doors and windows with respect to their types and functionalities
Describe the physical and construction characteristics of load bearing components: walls, floors, and roofs with respect to their framing details in different climatic zones and building types
Describe the physical and thermal characteristics of finishing materials: footing, wall siding, and roofing membranes with respect to air-tightness, water-tightness, and water drainage
Model a building structure with Autodesk Revit Architecture
Effective as of Fall 2019
