Coach House Design
PART 2: HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical and Lighting Using the design and drawings produced in PART 1, you will design and layout, HVAC, plumbing, electrical and lighting systems to suit your design. As you integrate these system, you should expect your design to evolve and change. Using the information provided in class and the student’s own research, each student will provide the following drawings and information;
1) Updated PART 1 Drawings Revise plans, building section and wall section as needed based on incorporating HVAC, plumbing, electrical and lighting. Ensure these drawings reflect the spatial impact of these systems.
2A) HVAC Plans – 1:50 Assume a forced-air or radiant and/or in-floor radiant system and consider heating, cooling and ventilation. Consider location of windows and doors (areas of heat loss or gain) and how the space is used. Assume municipal services come from laneway. Include the following; Ducting or distribution lines – no specific sizing required or shown in drawing, but approximate sizing must be considered. Is it exposed or concealed? Does if fit within the floor, ceiling or wall assembly. Are the supply diffusers at the wall, floor or ceiling? Supply grilles (Diffusers) and return grilles, radiators, in-floor heating, etc. A small room might only need one diffuser, but a larger room may require two or more. Ventilation, exhaust and fresh air supply. Locate and label energy supply, AHU, condensing unit, boiler and all other equipment required Schedule with symbols and description. Provide brief written description for why the system was chosen including notation of energy type used. Include passive techniques considered. Drawing Hint: HVAC is shown on the floor plan. Ductwork is typically shown on the floor it is on (floor-to-floor) even if it is overhead or in a ceiling space. Diffusers or grilles are shown on the floor they serves. If diffusers and grilles are on the ceiling, the should also appear on your RCP. 2B) Plumbing Plans- 1:50 Assume a standard supply and drain-waste-vent system with no a grey water integration. Do not include rainwater drainage. Assume municipal services come at lane way. Include the following; Layout out of drin-waste-vent system and hot and chilled water supply. Locate and label energy supply, incoming supply, and water heater. Locate and label stacks vents and drain stacks and main drain line and sewer connection. Schedule with symbols and description. Drawing Hint: Plumbing is typically shown on the floor it serves and below (ceiling-to-ceiling). Diffusers or grilles are shown on the floor they serves 2C) Electrical Plans Assume municipal services come from laneway hydro pole. Note, no circuits design required, nor do branch circuits need to be identified. Include the following; Locate and label power entering the coach house, meter and the main panel. Provide receptacle locations (interior and exterior) to support spaces design and use in addition to equipment or other electrical fixtures or devices. Locations of any other power use such as HVAC and plumbing if required. Schedule with symbols and description. 2D) Lighting Plans (RCP) The lighting solution and fixtures should be designed and selected to suite spatial and functional design requirements. Include the following; Selected fixtures/luminaires representing by appropriate symbols Circuits will be shown for the lighting with returns to switches shown on drawing to indicate switching pattern. Schedule with lighting symbols (w/ fixture number or letter) and description. Provide brief written description of your lighting design approach and how it meets the design of your space. Drawing HINT: Your lighting design solution can include switchable outlets. Show this in the Lighting Plan This is not a test of your knowledge of industry standards and graphics or even advanced technical drawing skills, but whether you understand the elements in the system and how they work and fit together in your design. Focus on drawing clarity. Utilize the example symbols provided, examples from the lecture or your own research. Not every element needs a symbol, you can also utilize labels or annotation notes, and smaller secondary or tertiary components do not need to be identified. Although actual specifications of equipment and fixtures are required in construction and tendering documents, please assume generics solutions.
