This course will focus on the architect’s sampling process, surface finishes, graphics, basic stone detailing, BIM object libraries, and will touch lightly on anchoring systems. The objective is to provide an understanding of available finishes, and design tools available to architects as they begin the design process and progress toward contract drawings. Consideration will also be given to budget pricing and cost implications of various design options.
