To provide fundamental tools to design simple facilities while deployed.
This course includes theories, principles, and techniques for designing simple facilities supporting contingencies and humanitarian operations. Specific areas covered include determining facility requirements and scope, site development, preliminary design, final design, and design review of a simple facility. A significant number of hours are dedicated to fundamental design in the areas of Architecture, Civil, Structural, Mechanical, and Electrical. Design considerations will include site selection, structural analysis, electrical analysis, HVAC analysis, plumbing design, and overall code compliance. This course is technically challenging and students will be expected to complete a series of design exercises in and out of the classroom culminating in a final facility design.
