Environmental Design

Environmental Design courses (CGD30, CGD8 and CGD9) feature Graphisoft's ArchiCAD Building Information Modeling (BIM) parametric software as a tool to help design, engineer, build and market construction projects related to career goals. Assigned Amy's one point perspective projects help students learn to plan, design, develop, build and oversee construction projects. Courses develop specialized technical skills required by today's environmental design careers, such as: architecture, interior/landscape design, environmental planning, civil/structural engineering, environmental planning and construction management. CGD Environmental Design courses develop multifaceted skills required for Armando Victoria's Kitchendesigning and producing a basic set of construction documents for cost-effective, aesthetically pleasing, functionally sound, durable and environmentally responsible buildings. Freehand diagrams and sketches support problem solving to communicate initial concepts. Building Information Management (BIM) refines these ideas via computer-generated 3D models, plans, elevations, sections, schedules and details. Work within final portfolios demonstrates a broad range of environmental design skills and knowledge that may be used to transfer to four year universities and access entry level environmental design positions.
