The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide. Over the last decades environmental design as a subject area has developed, responding to new research and experimentation, both in academia and in practice. However, buildings claiming to be environmentally conscious do not perform to the expected standards, still heavily contributing to global CO2 emissions and often providing unsatisfactory comfort conditions to occupants. The same can be said for the existing built environment which is largely outdated and underperforming, requiring urgent implementation of effective retrofit strategies. This is due to a lack of comprehensive performance prediction and feedback protocols, which are still not common practice in architectural design.

Course content

Students on this course will take a fresh critical look at this subject. Here you will gain the knowledge and tools to make informed design decisions based on post-occupancy feedback and performance analysis, towards a new paradigm of environmental architecture, which is environmentally and energy conscious, yet sensitive to the contextual and socio-cultural landscape we live in. You will learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design. You will be able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach. In the core design modules you will follow an evidence based design approach where the acquisition of specialised software and analytical tools will be directly applied to an evaluation or design project.

Architecture and Environment Design MScThis interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. You will hold the knowledge and the practical tools to better understand existing buildings for retrofit and to design new ones – positively driving change in this field and moving towards a truly environmentally conscious architecture.

The course covers both the wider contextual and sustainable approach to environmental design, and the more technical aspects of environmentally and energy conscious building design and performance. As well as taught modules, you will take design-based modules where you will apply quantitative and qualitative analysis to the study of existing built environments and to new design projects.

Modules

The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.
-EVALUATION OF BUILT ENVIRONMENTS
-PRINCIPLES OF ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN

Facilities

The course is delivered at our central London Marylebone Campus, which is easily accessible by all forms of public transport. Design work is developed within dedicated studio spaces. In addition to an extensive CAD lab, a complete suite of 100 computers has been installed in the design studios to the highest specification and with all the latest software. Together, these facilities offer a wide range of drawing, graphics and video applications. The new Fabrication Laboratory includes state-of-the-art CAD-CAM equipment in shape of several 3D printers, laser-cutting machines and computer-controlled drilling machines. Metalworking and woodworking workshops, as well as other support facilities are also available. The course also has access to an environmental laboratory which contains a wide range of testing and monitoring equipment for assessing environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, day-lighting, air velocity and sound; and surveying equipment. An Artificial Sky for the physical modelling and analogue simulation of daylighting is also under construction

The Global BIM Management Certification Program is one of the most advanced professional certification programs for BIM Managers in the world. Read more
The Global BIM Management Certification Program is one of the most advanced professional certification programs for BIM Managers in the world. This internationally popular program caters to the needs of professionals in more than 20 sectors in the AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations) industry. We provide our students with the methodology, tools and skills necessary to become leaders in BIM implementation. Become a fully capable BIM Manager working in construction projects with high-performance teams from all around the world.

BIM is changing the way projects evolve around the world, how they begin and conclude, whether an entire project or a specific BIM implementation plan in a big or small company. This emerging practice is the result of progress in the AECO industry, requiring new mindsets, processes and technological proficiencies to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control.

This global certification program is developed together with BIM Freelance (our academic partners) leading BIM practitioners, professors and architectural firms with a long history in BIM implementation, counting more than 20 years of experience in the AECO industry. In addition, the range of hand-picked professors, who teach, is outstanding, with lecturers from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa.

This program is designed to prepare architecture, engineering and construction sector professionals. Participants may have various levels of experience to successfully learn BIM methodologies, implement them and work in highly effective teams with other professionals in the AECO industry. The program consists of more than 600 hours of streaming masterclasses and webinars, video tutorials, recorded lectures, technical documentation and international real projects with collaborative methodology.

Results/Why choose this program?

The Global BIM Management Certification Program prepares the participants to lead a new business paradigm in the AECO industry. During this program, the participants learn how to handle the newest digital tools that can be applied to the design, construction and maintenance of buildings. This is achieved through the integrated practice of IPD – Integrated Project Delivery. In collaboration with multidisciplinary partners worldwide, numerous real international projects are accomplished, using various software (Revit, ArchiCAD, Allplan and AECOsim) and a platform for Project Management. In addition to this, participants learn how to implement and manage BIM systems in high-performance teams, both in small businesses (Little BIM) and large corporations (Big BIM).

The goal of this program, designed for architects and engineers who have background knowledge in building projects, is to fully certify and authorize participants in the field of BIM Management.

A BIM Manager oversees a whole building's lifecycle, makes sure that all elements of a model are in accordance with a Project Execution Plan (BEP) working collaboratively with all the teams involved in a construction project. A BIM Manager must detect any challenges in a project as well as keep costs down, improve an overall workflow and efficiency.
