Course Contents

The course requires the understanding of students through lectures and practical assessments of water supply, sanitation, fire fighting system and equipment, safety and security systems in a building. The understanding of installation methods and the knowledge of their maintenance over the life span also includes in the designing of this course. Universally accessible buildings and their vertical and horizontal transportation systems such as elevators, escalators, conveyors/power walks. The mechanisms of these transportation systems would be the core of the subject. The layout do’s and don’ts in case of emergency, the designing of proper sanitation of residential and public buildings and the criteria of adding vertical and horizontal transport systems would be the focus point of the course.

Course Synopsis

The course Building Services and Systems – II is in the curriculum to make students capable of understanding the systems in a building that needs to be introduced to make it efficient, useable and safe. These services can not at all be an afterthought and have to be planned while designing any building. So it is important to make students understand that building design is not only about fulfilling it’s functional requirements but is also about planning its services and introducing the required amount of systems in order to make the building ready for practical usage.
