= Introduction and Overview =
= Introduction and Overview =
Downtown Brooklyn is experiencing a renaissance. NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering spearheaded the first leg of this resurgence over 20 years ago when it proposed an urban renewal project designed to develop a Metropolitan Technology Center in Brooklyn.
As Brooklyn establishes itself as a technology and innovation hub, projects to modernize Downtown Brooklyn and the MetroTech area are being set into motion regularly. New York University plans to expand its Brooklyn campus to reflect its consistent desire to foster innovation, engineering, and a successful college experience. To that effect, NYU has requested that your organization remodel the Jacobs Building at the Tandon School of Engineering.
 
Now known as Metrotech, the area has been transformed. It features new construction that houses Keyspan Energy, Chase Manhattan Bank, Bear Sterns, Empire Blue Cross / Blue Shield, and other corporate heavyweights. The city has recognized Metrotech's success and intends to expand on it.
 
Since 9/11, Manhattan-based companies have had to add back office space outside of that Borough in order to prevent the catastrophic effects another terrorist attack could have on their businesses. The City, driven by the desire to keep these companies in New York, is planning a massive Downtown rezoning and redevelopment plan for Brooklyn. The plan would allow for the construction of 6.7 million square feet of office space, 1 million square feet of retail development, 1,000 housing units and 2,500 parking spaces.
 
Retail giants like Target, which just opened a store in the new Atlantic Terminal Mall on the corner of Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues, and Ikea, whose plan for a location in Red Hook has just been approved by the City Planning Commission, are moving to the area. There is even a proposal by the owner of the New Jersey Nets, Bruce Ratner, to move the team to a proposed site in Downtown Brooklyn called The Atlantic Yards.
 
But despite all this activity, there is still a shortage of supermarkets in the area. Operating on the theory that all these people must eat, Whole Foods, the Austin, Texas based natural and organic food seller, is building a 52,000 square foot store south of Park Slope. However, this site is still some distance from Downtown Brooklyn.


Our company, Poly Foods, Inc., is launching a design competition for our new location on Jay Street. Right in the heart of Metrotech, this site had enormous potential. The right design concept will guarantee success.
More and more companies are moving towards Autodesk Revit as their software of choice for modeling buildings. Your company has also adopted Revit as the optimal option for NYU’s remodel request. The ultimate goal is to present the university with a six-floor (minimum) building model that will include classrooms, lecture halls, a recreational space, dorms, and facilities to enhance the students’ quality of life. The building should include electrical and plumbing considerations.  


Your plan must be innovative. The winning proposal will be the one that incorporates a bold scheme for the space that combines solid engineering with a broad vision of the future of food retailing. The architectural ideas embodied in your plans must be discussed fully. Your proposal should include information on your company and its lead developers with at least one reference to a previous commission.
The Housing & Innovation in Revit (HIR) endeavor is a pivotal step in solidifying NYU’s place in Brooklyn and providing students with added living space, resources, and an ever-growing campus. As such, ensure that the building you design will meet the high standards and aesthetic expectations of New York University.


Please refer to the specifications that follow as you prepare your submission.

= Specifications =
= Specifications =
A major Supermarket chain has commissioned your firm to design a store for their recently purchased 400'X400' lot. It is bounded by Jay and Tillary Streets. Your clients have asked you to include a parking lot and a loading dock. The overall lot must hold both the supermarket and its parking lot. The parking lot can be "at grade", or above or beneath the supermarket.
New York University has commissioned your firm to redesign the old Jacobs Building into a college campus expansion for the Tandon School of Engineering. The lot is approximately 200 feet by  200 feet and is bounded by Jay Street and Johnson Street. The campus expansion must include:
* Classrooms
** Ten 40-student classrooms
** Eight 20-student classrooms
** Two 100-student lecture halls
* One recreational space
* Dorm rooms to accommodate 100 students
* One facility of choice
** Restaurant/cafeteria, gym, tennis court, etc.
As the space is 200 feet by 200 feet, additional rooms are allowed to be placed in the building as long as the above requirements are met.
Additionally, electrical and plumbing schematics must be completed for one recreational space, one dorm room, and one classroom. This includes all electrical wiring and plumbing pipes. Using these schematics, the '''cost of operation''' must be calculated for the entire facility. The completed building must have at least '''six''' floors. The campus must also achieve a LEED accreditation of at least '''Gold''' (four categories of the six available categories). The LEED accreditation system is explained further down the page.


Your supermarket must be only one story tall.
[[Image:Jacobs_building.JPG|thumb|600px|center|Figure 2: Exterior of the Jacobs Administrative Building on Jay Street.]]


The EG1003 staff will supply foam board. Any other materials you may want to use will have to be purchased by you at your own expense. There will be no reimbursement for these materials.
== Building Code ==
The new campus must adhere to the General Engineering Building Code as outlined below:
* Fire Code
** Each floor must be equipped with sprinkler heads and emergency evacuation stairs.
** Fire alarms must be placed in each classroom, dorm hallway, and recreational space.
*** Electrical wiring for the fire alarms are not necessary.
* Wheelchair Accessibility
** Each floor, classroom, and recreational space must be wheelchair accessible.
** At least one bathroom stall per floor must be wheelchair accessible.
* Security
** Every entrance and exit must be guarded by a 24/7 security guard with a desk and tap-in system.
** Entrances to dorms must have a turnstile in addition to the standard security guard.
* Structural Rules
** All doors must be at least 6 ft 8 in tall and 32 in wide.
** All walls must be at least 8 ft tall.


== Extra Credit ==
== LEED Accreditation ==
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification program. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Teams choose the best fit for their project. The different categories for the LEED checklist<ref name="checklist">[http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-building-design-and-construction-current-version http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-building-design-and-construction-current-version]</ref> correspond to principles of design, construction, and maintenance. For the purposes of this project, the checklist has been streamlined. All prerequisites from a category must be incorporated into the supermarket design to count toward certification. LEED Silver certification requires completion of at least two categories; LEED Gold, at least four categories, and LEED Platinum, all six categories. Achievement of each prerequisite will be accomplished through drawings, cost estimates, and explanations of the design.

== Site Visits ==
The first step is to make a number of site visits. Start by visiting the new Target at the Atlantic Terminal Market at 139 Flatbush Avenue. Their store hours are M-Sat 8-10 and Sun 8-9. Make note of the store's layout and the features that have been incorporated that allow a downtown store to use space efficiently. Next, visit a typical supermarket that is about 40,000 square feet. The Whole Foods in the Chelsea section of Manhattan is a good choice, but you may visit any one you like. On your visit, create a parts list of typical store fixtures like shelves, freezers, refrigerators, lighting fixtures, registers, display cases, shopping carts, restocking carts and so on. Write down the brand names of the fixtures you see to aid your research later. Determine the average checkout time per shopper at three different times of the day, 9AM on a weekday, 12PM on a Sunday, and 6PM on a weekday. Using the same three data points, calculate their average waiting time and how many shoppers enter the store per hour for each of the three hours. Tabulate this data neatly in a table, graph, or chart that presents the information clearly.


== Power/AC/Heat Calculations ==
== Power/AC/Heat Calculations ==
Using the information you gathered on your site visit, calculate the total power requirement for the store. Then calculate the energy costs for a typical year. Determine the total A/C requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for air conditioning? Determine the total heat requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for heat? Tabulate this data neatly in a table, graph, or chart that presents the information clearly.
Using the information from electrical and plumbing schematics, calculate the total power usage for the operation of the campus per day. Then calculate the energy costs for a typical year. Determine the total A/C requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for air conditioning? Determine the total heat requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for heat? Tabulate this data neatly in a table, graph, or chart that presents the information clearly. The standard unit of measurement for these power measurements is the kilowatt-hour (kWh). This information is also necessary for the requirements under Cost Estimate.
 
== Model ==
Design your Supermarket using AutoCAD as your primary design tool. Create a convenient layout, with aisles (at least wide enough for 2 shopping carts to pass), shelves, registers, deli counter, for all items, on the master list provided, of store items from the Port Washington King Kullen.


Your team will create a 3D computer-simulated model.
== Microsoft Project ==


== LabVIEW ==
HIR groups must create two separate Microsoft Project schedules; one to time manage your semester-long design project and one to plan out the theoretical construction schedule of your building design. You can learn Microsoft Project by doing the [[MS Project Skill Builder]].  
A LabVIEW program that will control the lighting, temperature, and security systems for your Supermarket must be created. Please refer to the course syllabus for all due dates.


Use LabVIEW to design a lighting system and a heating/cooling system for your Supermarket. Both systems must be included in the same LabVIEW VI.
The <b>SLDP schedule</b> must include all tasks related to the project from the start of the project to Submission. The Microsoft Project schedule should include the following:


Your design must include plumbing. The municipal water and sewer lines enter the Supermarket from the street. Your plumbing design must include piping for spray nozzles in the produce area, sinks in the deli area,sewage, hot water, and cold water.
* Minimum of 20 tasks.
* Milestones should be clearly indicated on the project plan (duration of zero days).
* Each task must include the person responsible for completing the task (resource names).
* Use the "Copy Picture" function to include the project plan in the presentations. <b>Do not take a screenshot.</b>
* Gantt chart must be displayed alongside the tasks list (fit onto one slide).
* Gantt chart must clearly show a progress line.
* Clearly state during the presentation whether the project is on-time, behind schedule, or ahead of schedule.


For your security system VI, you may want to take the following into consideration:
For help in planning the project, review the manual page [[How to plan the schedule and calculate costs for a project]].
* Fire Alarm
* Video Surveillance
* Manual/Automatic Alarm System
Be creative and make sure to label the security system appropriately in your VI implementation.  


{{SLDP: Microsoft Project}}
Additionally, create a <b>construction schedule</b> using Microsoft Project. Model the schedule after other sample construction projects. The items included in this schedule include:
* Clearing site
* Laying foundation
* Studs and structural members
* Wall construction and window installation
* Painting
* Electrical wiring and lighting installation
* Plumbing


== Drawings ==
== Drawings ==
The following paragraphs discuss the drawings required for the project, and AutoCAD. If you have access to another drawing system capable of producing 3D drawings, you may use that instead if you wish. However, EG1003 will only provide access to AutoCAD, and AutoCAD is the preferred solution.
The following paragraphs discuss the drawings required for the project using Revit. '''No other software will be accepted for submission.''' Revit is free to download using your NYU email, and all computers in the EG1004 Modelshop and NYU Tandon computer lab have full copies of the software.  


A command of AutoCAD is necessary for you to complete the drawings required for this project. Refer to the AutoCAD handout for more information. The main layer of your AutoCAD drawings will be the floor plan. The dimensioning, electrical, and plumbing drawings must be added as separate layers. Print your drawings separately using a scale of 1:240 (1" = 20'). You may use the symbols preloaded in AutoCAD to draw fixtures, appliances, windows, and doors. You will have to create some of the symbols required for your drawings. Make sure you include a title block.
Consult the [[Media: Revit_How_To.pdf|Revit How-To]] Guide to create your college campus expansion. The How-To Guide contains useful examples for designing your building, but '''do not copy the instructions for your project as they only serve as examples of the features available in Revit.''' The How-To exercises are also due as part of Milestone 1.


Use AutoCAD to draw a floor plan of your design, labeling all the fixtures and design elements you have included.
Each floor of your campus must have an accompanying drawing. It must be fully dimensioned and include all aspects of the room design including:
* All door and window openings
* Material choices
* Furniture
* Lighting fixtures


Use AutoCAD to prepare two elevation drawings of your design. Your first drawing is the front elevation. It must be fully dimensioned and include:
All electrical and plumbing drawings must include:
# All door and window openings.
* Wiring, outlets, switches, and light fixtures
# Your choice of façade material, e.g., aluminum siding, brick, or stucco.
* Sinks, toilets, and showerheads with hot water, cold water, and sewage pipes


Your second drawing is the most detailed side or back elevation. It must be fully dimensioned and include:
== Model ==
# All door and window openings.
Design your campus using Autodesk Revit as your primary design tool. Create a convenient layout to accommodate the items listed in Specifications. Once the design is complete, generate a walk-through video of the campus. It is also mandatory to submit a floorplan of at least one floor for 3D printing. 3D print the exterior shell utilizing the EG1004 Prototyping Lab. For extra credit, you can 3D print two or more floorplans. Revit floorplans can be setup for 3D printing as described in the [[Media: How to Make an STL File from a Revit File.pdf | How to Make an STL File from a Revit File]] Guide. Additional 3D printing details can be found in the [{Prototyping Guide]].
# Your choice of façade material e.g. aluminum siding, brick, or stucco.
 
Use AutoCAD to prepare a dimensioned drawing of your design. Your drawing must include:
# Detailed dimensions of your floor plan.
# You must be able to construct the store from this drawing. To preserve clarity, dimensions should be located outside the store when possible. Dimensions may not overlap.
 
Use AutoCAD to prepare an electrical drawing of your design. Your drawing must include:
# All items in the electrical system in this drawing.
# Outlets, switches, light fixtures, and wiring.
# A legend.


Use AutoCAD to prepare a plumbing drawing of your design. Your drawing must include:
[[Image:Sls_1.PNG|thumb|500px|center|Figure 3: Example of a classroom in Autodesk Revit.]]
# Spray nozzles in the produce area and sinks in the deli area.
# Sewage pipes (must be solid and be drawn with continuous line type).
# Cold water pipes (must be blue and be drawn with hidden line type).
# Hot water pipes (must be red and drawn with center line type).
# A legend.


Use AutoCAD to prepare an overall drawing of the site, showing the outline of the supermarket and the parking lot. If the parking lot is above or below ground, include a floor plan of the garage.
== Cost Estimate ==
Three separate tables (construction, operation, and labor) for cost estimation must be created using the following guidelines:
*<b>Cost of Construction:</b> Using the wholesale price of all materials and components in your design, calculate the total cost of construction of your building design (not including labor). Tabulate a bill of materials and generate a complete cost estimate for the entire campus.
* <b>Cost of Operation:</b> Calculate the total cost of operation per day and per year of the new campus. Tabulate energy usage and associated costs into a neatly organized table, as described in the Power/AC/Heat Calculations section.
* <b>Labor:</b> Calculate the total cost of labor for construction of the campus. Do not include the cost of labor for operation. Refer to the construction schedule to create this estimate. Neatly tabulate the costs into a table.


== First Cost Estimate ==
== Extra Credit ==  
After the design is complete, a cost estimate must be generated that calculates the cost of all the items specified on your parts list that will be incorporated into your design. Do not include construction costs. Conduct your research on the internet. The brand names you collected on your site visit will help. Tabulate the information clearly in an Excel spreadsheet.


Have all the materials and parts used categorized in different groups instead of including individual parts.  Make sure to include the units of each part used in a group and total them up for that individual group. Moreover, the cost of labor should be included. You can get help on the labor cost by reading the page [[How to plan the schedule and calculate costs for a project]].
HIR groups can receive extra credit for achieving Platinum LEED certification in their building design. You can also receive extra credit for completing Benchmark A, Benchmark B, or Submission early, or completing your respective SLDP's 3D printing extra credit task as described in the [https://manual.eg.poly.edu/index.php/Prototyping_Guide Prototyping Guide]. Refer to the [https://manual.eg.poly.edu/index.php/EG_Grading_Policy EG1004 Grading Policy] for exact point values. Creativity and innovation are always rewarded. Original designs will receive extra credit.

Introduction and Overview

As Brooklyn establishes itself as a technology and innovation hub, projects to modernize Downtown Brooklyn and the MetroTech area are being set into motion regularly. New York University plans to expand its Brooklyn campus to reflect its consistent desire to foster innovation, engineering, and a successful college experience. To that effect, NYU has requested that your organization remodel the Jacobs Building at the Tandon School of Engineering.

More and more companies are moving towards Autodesk Revit as their software of choice for modeling buildings. Your company has also adopted Revit as the optimal option for NYU’s remodel request. The ultimate goal is to present the university with a six-floor (minimum) building model that will include classrooms, lecture halls, a recreational space, dorms, and facilities to enhance the students’ quality of life. The building should include electrical and plumbing considerations.

The Housing & Innovation in Revit (HIR) endeavor is a pivotal step in solidifying NYU’s place in Brooklyn and providing students with added living space, resources, and an ever-growing campus. As such, ensure that the building you design will meet the high standards and aesthetic expectations of New York University.

Figure 1: The Washington Square Arch, widely regarded as the main symbol of NYU.

Specifications

New York University has commissioned your firm to redesign the old Jacobs Building into a college campus expansion for the Tandon School of Engineering. The lot is approximately 200 feet by 200 feet and is bounded by Jay Street and Johnson Street. The campus expansion must include:

  • Classrooms
    • Ten 40-student classrooms
    • Eight 20-student classrooms
    • Two 100-student lecture halls
  • One recreational space
  • Dorm rooms to accommodate 100 students
  • One facility of choice
    • Restaurant/cafeteria, gym, tennis court, etc.

As the space is 200 feet by 200 feet, additional rooms are allowed to be placed in the building as long as the above requirements are met. Additionally, electrical and plumbing schematics must be completed for one recreational space, one dorm room, and one classroom. This includes all electrical wiring and plumbing pipes. Using these schematics, the cost of operation must be calculated for the entire facility. The completed building must have at least six floors. The campus must also achieve a LEED accreditation of at least Gold (four categories of the six available categories). The LEED accreditation system is explained further down the page.

Figure 2: Exterior of the Jacobs Administrative Building on Jay Street.

Building Code

The new campus must adhere to the General Engineering Building Code as outlined below:

  • Fire Code
    • Each floor must be equipped with sprinkler heads and emergency evacuation stairs.
    • Fire alarms must be placed in each classroom, dorm hallway, and recreational space.
      • Electrical wiring for the fire alarms are not necessary.
  • Wheelchair Accessibility
    • Each floor, classroom, and recreational space must be wheelchair accessible.
    • At least one bathroom stall per floor must be wheelchair accessible.
  • Security
    • Every entrance and exit must be guarded by a 24/7 security guard with a desk and tap-in system.
    • Entrances to dorms must have a turnstile in addition to the standard security guard.
  • Structural Rules
    • All doors must be at least 6 ft 8 in tall and 32 in wide.
    • All walls must be at least 8 ft tall.

LEED Accreditation

Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification program. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Teams choose the best fit for their project. The different categories for the LEED checklist [1] correspond to principles of design, construction, and maintenance. For the purposes of this project, the checklist has been streamlined. All prerequisites from a category must be incorporated into the building design to count toward certification. LEED Silver certification requires completion of at least two categories; LEED Gold, at least four categories; and LEED Platinum, all six categories. Achievement of each prerequisite will be accomplished through drawings, cost estimates, and explanations of the design. Extra credit will be awarded for LEED Platinum certification.

Streamlined checklist:

  1. Location and Transportation
    1. Diverse land use (p.16[1]) – Design provides space for goods and services not directly related to the college campus. (Examples: cafe, gym, multi-purpose spaces for the public, etc.)
    2. Disability access – Detailed features are provided for Americans with Disability Act. (Examples: reserved parking, wheelchair accessible ramps)
    3. Bicycle and EV facilities (p.22[1]) – Bike racks and electric vehicle charging stations labeled in drawings.
    4. Reduced parking footprint (p.26[1]) – Realistic dimensions for parking spaces with minimal allocated space for parking lot if facility of choice is a parking area.
  2. Sustainable Sites
    1. Open space (p.36[1]) – Inclusion of green space on the campus grounds. (Examples: gardens, park space, rooftop vegetation, pond)
    2. Rainwater management (p.37[1]) – Reducing storm water runoff and built land impact on hydrologic cycle. (Examples: rainwater retention pond, rainwater storage, rainwater reuse)
    3. Heat island reduction (p.39[1]) – Minimizing paved and rooftop surfaces. (Examples: vegetative surfaces, trees, shade from energy generation systems)
    4. Light pollution reduction (p.41[1]) – Detailed placement of outdoor lighting fixtures, maximizing security and minimizing light pollution.
  3. Water Efficiency
    1. Water quality management – Real-time quality monitoring system, shutoff system for cases of contamination.
    2. Water use reduction (p.51[1]) – Use of low flow appliances and minimal irrigation, details for all water uses. (Example: sprinklers, sinks, toilets)
    3. Water heating and cooling (p.60[1]) – Intelligent placement of high efficiency systems.
    4. Advanced water metering – Real-time quantity monitoring system of all water use. (Examples: irrigation, indoor plumbing, reclaimed water, boiler usage)
  4. Energy and Atmosphere
    1. Optimize energy performance (p.74[1]) – Use of low energy systems. (Examples: lighting, refrigeration, appliances)
    2. Advanced energy metering (p.77[1]) – All electrical use run through a single meter.
    3. Demand response (p.79[1]) – Energy use changes throughout the day.
    4. Renewable energy production (p.80[1]) – Location and connection to electrical system. (Examples: solar, wind, thermal)
  5. Indoor Environmental Quality
    1. Air quality management (p.107[1]) – Ventilation and monitoring of air. (Examples: carbon monoxide detectors, exhaust vents, air filtration system)
    2. Interior lighting/daylight (p.129[1]) – Enhanced interior lighting. (Examples: dimmers, daylight, window shades)
    3. Thermal comfort (p.127[1]) – Enhanced temperature control for individual comfort. (Examples: localized heating and cooling, circulating fans, radiant flooring)
    4. Acoustic performance (p.136[1]) – Sound absorbent surfaces are greater than the ceiling area. (Examples: acoustic tiles, acoustic wall panels)
  6. Innovation (p.140[1])
    1. Connected building – Design the campus for internet connectivity and connected devices. (Examples: Wi-Fi router, networked registers, inventory systems)
    2. Intelligent inventory – Real-time monitoring of inventory, if applicable. (Examples: shelves with sensors, database connected to registers, exit door scanners)
    3. Security and safety – Enhanced security technology. (Examples: automatic police contact, automatic fire contact, notifications)
    4. Sustainability – Focus on innovative green technologies not included in other categories.

Power/AC/Heat Calculations

Using the information from electrical and plumbing schematics, calculate the total power usage for the operation of the campus per day. Then calculate the energy costs for a typical year. Determine the total A/C requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for air conditioning? Determine the total heat requirement. What is the dollar cost per year for heat? Tabulate this data neatly in a table, graph, or chart that presents the information clearly. The standard unit of measurement for these power measurements is the kilowatt-hour (kWh). This information is also necessary for the requirements under Cost Estimate.

Microsoft Project

HIR groups must create two separate Microsoft Project schedules; one to time manage your semester-long design project and one to plan out the theoretical construction schedule of your building design. You can learn Microsoft Project by doing the MS Project Skill Builder.

The SLDP schedule must include all tasks related to the project from the start of the project to Submission. The Microsoft Project schedule should include the following:

  • Minimum of 20 tasks.
  • Milestones should be clearly indicated on the project plan (duration of zero days).
  • Each task must include the person responsible for completing the task (resource names).
  • Use the "Copy Picture" function to include the project plan in the presentations. Do not take a screenshot.
  • Gantt chart must be displayed alongside the tasks list (fit onto one slide).
  • Gantt chart must clearly show a progress line.
  • Clearly state during the presentation whether the project is on-time, behind schedule, or ahead of schedule.

For help in planning the project, review the manual page How to plan the schedule and calculate costs for a project.

Additionally, create a construction schedule using Microsoft Project. Model the schedule after other sample construction projects. The items included in this schedule include:

  • Clearing site
  • Laying foundation
  • Studs and structural members
  • Wall construction and window installation
  • Painting
  • Electrical wiring and lighting installation
  • Plumbing

Drawings

The following paragraphs discuss the drawings required for the project using Revit. No other software will be accepted for submission. Revit is free to download using your NYU email, and all computers in the EG1004 Modelshop and NYU Tandon computer lab have full copies of the software.

Consult the Revit How-To Guide to create your college campus expansion. The How-To Guide contains useful examples for designing your building, but do not copy the instructions for your project as they only serve as examples of the features available in Revit. The How-To exercises are also due as part of Milestone 1.

Each floor of your campus must have an accompanying drawing. It must be fully dimensioned and include all aspects of the room design including:

  • All door and window openings
  • Material choices
  • Furniture
  • Lighting fixtures

All electrical and plumbing drawings must include:

  • Wiring, outlets, switches, and light fixtures
  • Sinks, toilets, and showerheads with hot water, cold water, and sewage pipes

Model

Design your campus using Autodesk Revit as your primary design tool. Create a convenient layout to accommodate the items listed in Specifications. Once the design is complete, generate a walk-through video of the campus. It is also mandatory to submit a floorplan of at least one floor for 3D printing. 3D print the exterior shell utilizing the EG1004 Prototyping Lab. For extra credit, you can 3D print two or more floorplans. Revit floorplans can be setup for 3D printing as described in the How to Make an STL File from a Revit File Guide. Additional 3D printing details can be found in the [{Prototyping Guide]].

Figure 3: Example of a classroom in Autodesk Revit.

Cost Estimate

Three separate tables (construction, operation, and labor) for cost estimation must be created using the following guidelines:

  • Cost of Construction: Using the wholesale price of all materials and components in your design, calculate the total cost of construction of your building design (not including labor). Tabulate a bill of materials and generate a complete cost estimate for the entire campus.
  • Cost of Operation: Calculate the total cost of operation per day and per year of the new campus. Tabulate energy usage and associated costs into a neatly organized table, as described in the Power/AC/Heat Calculations section.
  • Labor: Calculate the total cost of labor for construction of the campus. Do not include the cost of labor for operation. Refer to the construction schedule to create this estimate. Neatly tabulate the costs into a table.

Extra Credit

HIR groups can receive extra credit for achieving Platinum LEED certification in their building design. You can also receive extra credit for completing Benchmark A, Benchmark B, or Submission early, or completing your respective SLDP's 3D printing extra credit task as described in the Prototyping Guide. Refer to the EG1004 Grading Policy for exact point values. Creativity and innovation are always rewarded. Original designs will receive extra credit.

Milestones, Benchmarks, and Deliverables

As you work on your project, you will be required to present periodic reports on your progress. We call these Milestones. All of the items assigned in each phase of the project are called Benchmark deliverables. These deliverables often consist of a combination of written submissions, presentations, and demonstrations. Benchmark assessments evaluate the progress of your project.

Preliminary Design Investigation

The Preliminary Design Investigation (PDI) is extremely important, as it lays the groundwork for your project. You will be outlining your project idea, inspiration, and goals.

The PDI must include:

  • Cover Page
  • Project Overview
  • Goals & Objectives
