Title: "Back to Basics: Building Height, Area, and Construction Type Workshop"
Description: One of the building code's most basic functions is to regulate building height and area based on use group and construction type. This workshop explores the relationship between these elements within the context of the 8th Edition of the Massachusetts State Building Code. A basic height and area calculation is used as a starting point and is built upon to introduce the available options for the treatment of mixed uses; accessory, non-separated, separated firewalls, and separate detached buildings. Architectural and construction professionals of all experience levels will benefit from this primer on height and area analysis which will serve as an overview of fundamentals for those in the early stages of their career as well as a refresher for seasoned veterans looking to understand the subtle changes due to the 2009 IBC and Massachusetts amendments.
Title: "Let's Tell the World About You"
Description: In this two-hour session students will explore brand, communications, marketing and public relations as they relate to the design professions.
