Welcome - Building Systems Integration ARCH 4212   Building Systems Integration
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course studies performance standards related to human activities in buildings, and the systems and configurations required to support those activities. Building systems are considered in relation to climate, urban situation, and the natural environment. Principles of systems thinking, as well as the use of physical and computational modeling methods, are applied to the comprehensive design of a building to achieve defined performance standards and to consider issues of sustainability with regard to energy balance, water conservation, and component materials.
