The Integration Of Virtual Reality In The Commercial Construction Industry, Justin T. Gin

Construction Management

Virtual reality has recently been spreading throughout the commercial construction industry rapidly. Some of its capabilities are safety training, helping spot Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues, logistics planning, and virtual walkthroughs. Many construction companies were starting to utilize virtual reality's advantages until COVID-19 hit. The initial wave of COVID slowed down construction in general as well as the need or use of virtual reality. Now, some companies are worried about the health risks and implementation issues that virtual reality headsets might bring while other companies are optimistic about the future of virtual reality. This report will explore the different …

Proposal For Adobe Earthbag Disaster-Relief Structure, John Camacho 2022 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Proposal For Adobe Earthbag Disaster-Relief Structure, John Camacho

Construction Management

The science behind creating an adobe house has been around for thousands of years; the primitive mixture contains only dirt, water, and straw. Left to cure in bricks or as a single cast-in-place system, the structure will provide long-lasting protection from the elements. Science has taken this a step further with the introduction of cementitious admixtures and reinforcement. The result is an adobe structure with exemplary thermo-retentive properties and load-bearing capabilities. This project provides an analysis on the “SuperAdobe” earthbag system that has been put into practice by independent contractors and housing-relief initiatives. The goal of the project was to …

Renew is the un-official 4th R in reduce, reuse, recycle; and is the driving concept of the Paisley Eatery. The focal point for giving life to the space is a sustainable green wall that improves the quality of air while bringing a pleasing aesthetic to the space. To help renew the space I am strengthening the building by using sustainably sourced heavy timber for columns, wall studs, and rafters; durable, and sustainable wood siding is used to keep the historical charm while lowering the up keep of the facade.

Paisley Mill

The Regal Archive project aims to construct a building that is sustainable, functionable and at the same time, has its own personality. The inspiration has been drawn directly from the image of leaves, or tree branches, stacking on top of each other. There will be a lot of open spaces, floor openings, lots of windows that make use of natural sunlight. Being able to see floor stacked on floor, all the way from top to bottom provides a great sense of verticality to the guests, and add more depth to the building’s context, as if one is to stand on …

The old silo building is a heavy timber construction. The 3D wall section shows the design of the wall I have chosen to be used in the office, art gallery and pottery studio. The exterior wall material selected is wood planks as wanted to maintain the heritage look and pay respect to the old look of the building. Another reason to choose wood is that it is durable, sustainable, and efficient. Exterior sheathing is used instead of plywood to make the non-combustible building construction. Semi-rigid (mineral fibre wool) insulation is used above grade and is tripled. The roof material is …

Paisley Mill

Welcome to Paisley Mill! A newly renovated stone mill which features a coffee shop with a bakery, a lounge space, and a hobby shop. I’ve decided to display my section at this location because it shows how the proposed bakery connects to the existing silo structure. The bakery proposal is the main highlight of my design. I specifically wanted to show the viewing window from the coffee shop into the bakery because this is the main feature that connects the two programs together. I am emphasizing the idea of connection with how the baked goods are made and being freshly …

Focusing on harmony between architecture and nature, we strive to put sustainability in the forefront with this design of the Paisley Butterfly Conservatory. In this wall section we highlight the green roof, the green wall, and rainwater recycling.

This section cut goes through the middle of the building and shows the details of the walls and reveals the interior to show what activities go on within the wellness center. The construction components are also shown, using wood timber for columns and web joist for the framing, black oak wood siding for the exterior and also the aluminum red mullions to make the building more vibrant. With nature all around and the classical style of the residential buildings, the modern community center really pops out. Also having curtain walls really brings the feeling of nature throughout the building, so …
