This subject was previously known as Commercial Construction.
This subject broadens students' knowledge in conventional and innovative high-rise construction practices and methodologies. Students will examine how high-rise buildings are built (e.g. high-rise residential, commercial and industrial buildings), including conventional and innovative materials used in their construction. They will also develop the ability to read plans and appreciate construction details. To enable students to learn from real-world industry practices, students are encouraged to join project site visits arranged as part of the course.
