Architettura Tecnica 3 (EA)
Sistainable design Marco D'Orazio
Knowledge of structural technologies and building construction technologie
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Students will acquire Knowledge about methodologies useful to evaluate the environmental impact assessment of building design and construction. Students will integrate previous knowledges regarding building construction (Architectural Engineering and Building construction) in order to acquire consciousness of environmental impacts related to building design and construction.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Students will be able to promote the innovation and the development of building components considering environmental issues related to the production and to the use of buildings. At the end of the course, the students will be able to measure the environmental impact of buildings and components. Considering acquired professional abilities, the students will be able to: 1) choose materials and technologies considering measured environmental impacts; 2) identify and measure environmental impacts; 3) interpret results coming from methodologies previous defined, working in group.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
An exercise of problem solving that will be carried out in groups will lead to the drafting of a report. It will help the students to improve their independence of judgment, their ability to work in team, to learn independently and to draw conclusions.
Contents (Lessons, 30 hours)
Environmental sustainability of building constructions: Theoretical basis, laws and regulamentations in Europe and Italy, calculation methods (LCA, Environmental protocols); Sustainability of building technologies and building meterials (EPD and related evaluation criteria); Recicle;
Practical activity (building and component analysis, 60 hours)
Life cycle cost of a case study; Life cycle assessment of a case study; Enviromental protocol application to a case study.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The evaluation will be developed in a two stage process. Firstly the Teacher will evaluate results obtained during the practical activity (annual activity) . Secondly the teacher will evaluate during an oral examination the knoledge acquired by the student on the sustainability in the construction process.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
Ability to apply acquired knowledges on the design of a building
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Ability and autonomy of the student to solve problems related to this specific area. Ability regarding the use of methdologies and tools related to the sustainability
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The final mark will be comprises between 30 with laude and 18. The highest evaluation will be assigned to students autonomous and able to solve problems related to sustainable design. The lowest evaluation will be assigned to students adequately able to solve problems related to sustainable design.
