Description

Building performance and its relationship to design, construction, occupant behaviour and the environment. Building performance regulations and the regulatory environment. Failure, success and value of building projects. Building performance assessment. Roles and responsibilities and liabilities. Collaboration and communication with project stakeholders.

This interdisciplinary course examines the multiple dimensions of building performance (functional, financial, economic, strategic and sustainability) and the relationship between design, environment (physical, legal and socio-economic) and performance of buildings. This knowledge is applied to performance assessment and collaborative design of buildings. The course covers advanced communications for building designers, including the language, roles, responsibilities, values and objectives of various stakeholders in a building project (architects, engineers, developers, owners, occupants and regulators) and project failure and success factors. It also introduces collaboration approaches and digital collaboration tools. Learning includes projects and case studies.

Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes this course should be able to apply advanced building performance principles to:

 Collaborating and communicating with stakeholders in a building project, including tangata whenua, through understanding:
- roles, responsibilities, values, objectives and language of architects, engineers, developers, owners, occupants and regulators.
- effects of culture and history on design practice.
- different approaches and philosophes to design.
 Identifying and communicating potential issues in a building design project, through understanding:
- key concepts related to building costs, value, quality, aesthetics, resilience and sustainability, and built environment systems.
- failure and success factors of building design projects.
- reasons for gaps between expected and actual building performance.
- functional requirements of building regulations and regulatory processes.
- effects of occupants and the physical environment on building behaviour and performance and vice-versa.
 Evaluating building design proposals through the use of financial, economic and sustainability assessment methods.
