The aim of the Construction 7 course is to support students in developing their Final Degree Project (FDP), providing the necessary material and technical definition to the project. The FDP project demonstrates the skills that have been assimilated during the course.
Knowledge of materials, products, building systems, the structural concept underlying the proposal, the optimization of technical-conditioning systems… ultimately, the true material nature of the project should be understood as one of the main objectives of the course.
Students should have passed all the subjects of Construction, Structural Calculation and M&E engineering of previous courses, although ultimately the Managing Board of ESARQ is responsible for defining the criteria of compatibility between different subjects.
The objective of this course is to support and advise students during the preparation of their Final Degree Project (FDP).
This guidance entails reviewing and enlarging upon knowledge related to the building structure and its coherence with the general construction systems of the project, preparing the relevant graphic documentation and ensuring that the whole project is synchronous with the decisions taken during the planning process.
- 12-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes and execute building structures
- 13-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes, and execute interior partition systems, carpentry, staircases and other finished works.
- 14-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes and execute enclosure systems, roofs and other structural work
- 15-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes and execute foundation solutions
- 25 - To acquire adequate knowledge of conventional building systems and their pathology
The learning outcomes should be manifested in the Final Degree Project. This should clearly reflect all the processes related to the materiality, construction systems used, the structure and the technical conditioning of the project.
TOPIC 1 CONTACT WITH THE LAND
Earth movements. Existing and modified topography. Earth retaining and foundation structures. Timeline of construction processes. Consistency between foundation systems and the structure of the project. Impact on the natural and built environment.
TOPIC 2 STRUCTURE
Checking and validating the structural hypothesis. Consistency between the type of structure and its materiality. Compatibility between the structure and the general building systems of the project. The construction of the structure.
TOPIC 3 ENCLOSURES
Compatibility between the structure and its enclosures. Validation of the proposed structural enclosure system with regard to aspects such as air and water tightness and acoustic and thermal insulation.
TOPIC 4 TECHNICAL CONDITIONING AND INTERIOR COMPARTMENTALIZATION
Energy efficiency of the structure’s enclosures. Validation of exterior joinery and glazed elements.
TOPIC 5 THE DETAIL OF THE PROJECT
Definition of the project on a detailed scale.
Selection of the most representative and defining elements of the material features of the project: joinery and/or locksmith work, vertical communication, staircases, special furnishings, wet zones, etc.
Teaching and learning activities
The course is organized into 5 themed blocks to be given successively. Each topic will be dealt with as a group in each session, using the student’s own work as a basis. Theoretical explanations will be given during the sessions along with talks on practical examples related to the course project.
The support documentation from the students for the working sessions should be handed in to the professor one week ahead and always in digital format.
At the end of the course, students should submit a document containing all the documents used during the course with the relevant corrections resulting from the themed sessions.

Evaluation systems and criteria
Se valorará el seguimiento y presencia del alumno en todas las sesiones temáticas del curso. Es obligatoria la entrega de la documentación técnica durante el curso. La nota final se obtendrá a partir de valorar el resultado final del trabajo (75%), y las diferentes entregas realizadas durante el curso (25%).
Bibliography and resources
The bibliography for reference purposes is the one specified throughout the degree course for the different technical assignments. Reference to specific reading lists may also be recommended in accordance with the work of each student.
