Building Systems


The course provides the instruments for a critical choice of plant systems, for their correct dimensioning, for a critical assessment of performance needs and requirements and for an appropriate cost-effective ratio. The following types of systems will be dealt with in detail: heating, ventilation, summer and winter climate control, plumbing and sanitation, protection and safety, electrics, transport and communication, systems and renewable energy. We will also analyse elements of integrated design and fire safety. The semester will deal with case studies of real buildings, with numerical practical work, encouraging interaction with the design themes presented in the studio sessions.
