Integrated Building System Design. (3) [Methods for integration and coordination of structural, mechanical, electrical, and lighting systems in the building architectural design process.]<br><br> Every team in the class is given the same building, this semester an office building for an advertising company.<br><br> I'm in a team of four, and we each take different leadership positions throughout the semester. <br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/group.jpg"><br><br> Pictured here from right to left:<br> Nick is the electrical system leader.<br> Brandon was the mechanical system leader.<br> Julia was the plumbing system leader.<br><br> I was the structural system leader (even though my first choice was electrical).<br><br> For our mechanical system, we choose a geo-thermal heat pump system.<br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/site.jpg"><br> This is a site plan, with the 84 ground loops located south of the building underneath the parking lot.<br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/diagram.jpg"><br> Here is a diagram of the air-side of our system.

We are given plans like we would from an architect (remember, I'm in architectural engineering). In teams of four, we have to decide what to do for each system.<br><br> We have already chosen the lighting systems. That was pretty simple and straight-forward. We checked the lighting level requirements in the IESNA Handbook and then used the Visual Lighting software to layout and calculate footcandle levels.<br><br> Now we are on the structural systems. We have to come up with three viable options for each space. We are leaning towards steel columns and beams with steel joists and a metal roof decking. It's fun going through the options.<br><br> I'll keep you updated on our progress and what we decide to use.<br></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450211/basement-on-a-hill Basement on a Hill Matthew Peterworth 2005-04-27T03:07:43-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:02-04:00 <p>The title of this entry is a reference to the Elliot Smith album. Also, part 3 of our 5 part KC lighting tour had us in a high-end residential basement (on a hill). Again, the lighting design was by <a href="http://www.derekporterstudio.com" target="_blank">Derek Porter</a>. <br><br> What really sets this space apart is that it is almost exclusively lit with fluorescent lamps (T5 HO strip lighting in coves).<br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/Residential%20Basement/House-05.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/Residential%20Basement/House-13.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/Residential%20Basement/House-14.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/Residential%20Basement/House-10.jpg"><br> This post is actually a structural steel column with fiber optic lights wrapped around it and a frosted glass cover.

So they opted for the different size T8 lamp so there would be no confusion when replacing it. The color difference between this T8 lamp and the T5 HO was also easily noticable. Same manufacturer, same temperature rating, but the T5 HO produced a neut...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450209/kc-public-library KC Public Library Matthew Peterworth 2005-04-27T02:41:06-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:02-04:00 <p>Part 2 of our 5 part lighting tour was the KC Public Library. I forgot to mention that Derek Porter of <a href="http://www.derekporterstudio.com" target="_blank">Derek Porter Studio</a> was lighting designer for both the <a href="http://www.archinect.com/schoolblog/entry.php?id=18276_0_39_0_C" target="_blank">Bartel Hall renovation</a> and the update to the KC Public Library, which we are about to see. <br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-01.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-02.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-03.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-04.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-05.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-06.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-07.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-08.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-09.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-10.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-11.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-12.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-13.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-14.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-15.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-16.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-17.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-18.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/KC%20Library/KCLibrary-19.jpg"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450207/bartel-hall-renovation-kansas-city Bartel Hall Renovation (Kansas City) Matthew Peterworth 2005-04-27T02:23:20-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>My Lighting Class toured the new renovation of Bartel Hall / Kansas City Convention City today.

It was due the Monday of finals week, and the procrastinator that I am, the weekend came and I had not even started yet. I figured, why not evaluate the Catholic Church. I could attend Mass and pray for good grades while I'm there evaluating it!<br><br> So here are some pics of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Manhattan, Kansas:<br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/IMG_0654.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/IMG_0653.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/IMG_0667.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/paavopetie/IMG_0679.jpg"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450126/classes-next-semester Classes next semester Matthew Peterworth 2005-03-30T20:34:23-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>I got to enroll on Monday (yippee!).
