Rutgers—The State University of New Jersey, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences Department of Landscape Architecture CONSTRUCTION III –11:550:441 Design Implementation and Practice COURSE SYLLABUS Fall 2013 Credits: 4 Instructor : Richard Alomar, RLA, CLARB Blake Hall 226 [email protected] (848) 932-5266 (office) (917) 224-8373 (mobile) Schedule: Studio T 9:15AM-12:15PM Lecture F 9:15AM-10:35PM Studio F 10:55AM-12:15PM Office Hours T/F 12:15-1:15PM Overview Construction III, Design Implementation and Practice, is the final course in the Construction Sequence in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers University. It will take a project from existing conditions to final construction drawings based on a specific concept, performance requirement and scope of work. The course will approach the work as a real- world design studio, simulating the dynamics, structure and requirements of a professional office. Students will apply their knowledge of data collection and research, design development, digital representation and construction drawing production. As a capstone course, it assumes the successful completion of all prerequisite courses and proficiency in design, technical aspects of construction, professional practice and digital representation. If you are not comfortable with any of your skill sets, please make time early in the semester for review. Goal The goal of the course is to learn how to develop a design and produce construction drawings for that design, as done in a professional design office. Learning Objectives (LO) The learning objectives of this course are: 1. Learn how to plan and manage time to meet deadlines. 2. Learn to collect and analyze site data using interviews, personal mapping, site

inventory and performance criteria. 3. Learn to develop and produce concepts and programs in a charrette format. 4. Learn to develop, produce and present a schematic and final design. 5. Learn to produce a set of construction documents for a final design based on professional standards. Tasks As stated above, course work is designed to simulate the office environment and professional sequence. The sequencing of work has been developed similar to that of a contract for Landscape Architectural Design Services which describes, to the client, the sequencing of work to be done and identifies deliverables to be submitted for an agreed fee. This syllabus, project schedule and scope of work shall stand as our contract. We will develop our designs through 6 distinct tasks: 1. Task 1: Personal Mapping (LO 1,2) 2. Task 2: Site/Performance Analysis (LO 1,2) 3. Task 3: Concept/Program Plan and Charette (LO 1,3) 4. Task 4: Schematic Design (LO 1,4) 5. Task 5: Final Design (LO 1,4) 6. Task 6: Construction Documents (LO 1,5) Each phase of work will have multiple parts and will extend over multiple weeks. The tasks are a guide for completing the project successfully and an opportunity to receive input and make revisions to your design and working drawings.
