The objective of the course was to research and analyze a contemporary case study building and to build a detailed digital model of several subject areas of the same building. Using the building’s construction documents as the primary resource, a full understanding of the building was developed with its interrelationships between the architectural, structural, mechanical, and enclosure systems along with the construction methods, materials, and assemblies. The preliminary case study was worked in a team of three, to do the research and model the building structure and the detailed model assemblies of thev specific subject areas were done individually.
