Introduction
Introduction

  • Built environment programs at IIUM

  • U/g and P/g studies in

    • Architecture

    • Urban & Regional Planning

    • Landscape Architecture

    • Quantity Surveying

    • Applied Arts and Design

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Introduction1
Introduction

  • The problem

  • Difficulties faced by freshmen in understanding the processes

    • Design complex

    • Construction and technical

    • Roles and functions of key players (management)

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Proposed solution
Proposed solution

  • Design a new course

  • Objectives

    1.To make students understand the processes of design and construction (the technical aspect)

    2.To make students understand the roles and functions of key players (management)

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Proposed solution1
Proposed solution

  • Concept of DIY

    • Integrate theory + practice

      explain + doing

    • Multi-disciplinary

      Role play representing architects, engineers, surveyors, constructors

    • ‘Near-real’ work environment

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Proposed solution2
Proposed solution

  • The course design

  • Integrated multi-disciplinary project (AQS 1301)

  • Life project

    • Brief + project planning

    • Site inventory + analysis + estimating

    • Design + construction drawings + BQ

    • Construction

    • Motivation, leadership

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Proposed solution3
Proposed solution

  • The course delivery

  • Within a semester (3rd Semester 8 full weeks)

  • Three parts

    Part 1 Lecture and tutorials (week 1-4)

    Part 2 Studio + critic (week 1-4)

    Construction (week 5-8)

    Part 3 Motivation camp (week 4)

  • Assessment

Observation 2001 2004
Observation 2001 - 2004

  • Course started 2001

  • Projects

    • Recreational park (01), Bus stop (02)

    • Gateway (03), Gazebo (04)

  • Observations on the students

    1.Enjoyed the ‘near-real’ environment (they design, they construct, under supervision, assisted by skilled workmen)

    2.Understand better the processes of design and construction

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Observation 2001 20041
Observation 2001 - 2004

  • Observations on the students

    3.Understand better the roles and functions of key players (architects, engineers, surveyors, constructors)

    4.Creative in solving problems

    5.Disputes happened (in all aspects of the processes)

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Case study the gazebo
Case study – The Gazebo

  • The course delivery – the gazebo (‘04)

    • 150 freshmen + 4 staff

    • Design + construction

    • Area of site 40m2 (gazebo = 9m2)

    • Cost limit RM20,000.00 (GBP2,900.00)

    • Duration 1st March 04 – 20th May 04

    • Assisted by 2 skilled workmen

    • Completed within budget but delayed by 3 months

Impact to student
Impact to student

  • Simple survey

    • Students that have been involved

    • 25 out / 23 returned (92%)

    • Results

    • Understand design + construction83%

    • Understand roles and functions of key players70%

    • Understand leadership + communication61%

    • Results correlates with observations

Khairuddin Abdul Rashid PhD BEEC, London 5-6 Sept 2005


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • AQS 1301 achieved its objectives

  • The concept of DIY is instrumental in making AQS 1301successful

  • AQS 1301 should be continued

    _____________________________

  • Constraints in delivery

    • Budget

    • suitable sites

    • Large no of students
