CNS 240: CAPSTONE PROJECT

CNS240 is a culmination of the Construction Technology student’s studies at the college. Students will work in groups with the Architectural Technology students to develop a project from project development through schematic design and design development through construction drawings. CNS students will be responsible for a partial set construction drawings of the same building and a building materials takeoff and cost estimates of the building. Both groups of students will prepare a booklet of product data sheets for their projects. Building types include small schools, apartment houses, office buildings, department stores, and dining halls. All of the drawings for this course will be prepared on the computer using the AutoCAD system. Prerequisite: ARC 205
