The Office Planning Project required two distinct options for a layout of an office. A bubble diagram (top right) was provided to indicate approximate size and location of the areas required within the office. A second bubble diagram (directly above) was created, which shifted the bubbles to fill empty spaces. From the bubble diagrams two different floor plan options were developed. The floor plans were first laid out in AutoCAD and were then transferred into SketchUp to create the perspective view. Option 1 (top left) features an open lounge area connected to the resource room behind the elevator. The reception and waiting area is set back and is secluded from the rest of the office. Option 2 (bottom left) differs in the layout of the lounge and resource room. The resource room is smaller and has shifted to be beside the elevator, while the lounge stretches behind it. The book keeping office has been made longer, allowing for the addition of one more workstation. This has also shifted the reception area closer to the elevator.

This was a pre-designed home The floor plan, complete with dimensions and finishes, had been provided. The house then had to be redrawn exactly as shown in Revit. To the left is the complete main floor plan, drawn identical to the original plan. It includes the placement of all necessary dimensions, door and window tags, and room labels. In the upper left corner, is the north kitchen elevation. All the cabinets, as well as the window and patio door, were placed as components that were found in Revit’s libraries. Above is a rendered perspective of the same kitchen using Revit. This rendering shows materials that have been applied to the model, as well as the placement of more components to make the rendering more realistic.

This is a full page layout of the Branch Energy Company floor pan, a commercial office, drawn in AutoCAD.


15 The Branch Energy Company project is a set of drawings for the construction of an office. The floor plan had already been completed, however elevations, sections, and details were still required. Some features, such as the board room table, a part height wall outside the conference room, and the bistro, still needed to be designed before the project could be completed. Branch Energy required a design for a part height wall, which would be located outside of the conference room. The image to the left is an elevation of the wall, indicating the design intent. The image to the right is a section through the part height wall, which shows the components of the wall’s construction.

A design for a conference table large enough to seat 12-16 people was also requested. The image to the left is a furniture plan of the conference room with a table that provides seating for 16 people. Below is a detail of the construction of the custom table top.

Cooper Kitchen Renovation


20 The Cooper Kitchen Renovation Project was a complete renovation of an existing kitchen. A storage closet was to be removed to create a larger kitchen area. Three design options had to be presented and one was chosen for construction. All of the cabinets were to be sourced from a kitchen manufacturer, so standard sizes of cabinets had to be used. The drawing below is the demolition plan of the existing kitchen. The dashed lines denote the areas that were to be removed.

The drawing above is the floor plan for the new kitchen layout. The design features a kitchen island and a walk in pantry. Display cabinetry and a built in desk with shelving were also incorporated. The correct notes, elevation symbols, and dimensions were required to clearly communicate design intent and ensure proper construction of the kitchen.

Stollery Children's Ambulatory Clinic


30 The Stollery Children’s Ambulatory Clinic was a group design project. An overall concept of whimsy was given, and from there it was refined into the concept of Neverland. The use of the map of Neverland is the main influence on the design. In conjunction with the layout, the finishes and materials for all areas had to be specified. The floor plan shown on the left was provided with the exam rooms’ size and shape already laid out. The areas left to be designed consisted of the waiting area with play area, reception desk, nursing station, consult rooms, and height and weight areas. The waiting area and each corridor is themed after an area of the Neverland map. The floor patterning ties into each area’s theme and is designed to help patients to find their way around the clinic. The play area shown below is designed to resemble a pirate’s ship complete with a sail and portal windows in the part height wall. Above the play area is a domed bulkhead, which resembles a starry night sky.

31 Pictured left is a perspective of the reception desk in the children’s clinic. The curved shape of the desk reinforces the concept of the Neverland map, mimicing the softer curved lines found on it. The perspective and elevations were all created in SketchUp and were rendered using IRender. In the bottom left corner is an elevation of the entrance to some of the exam rooms. The corridor is located in a pirate themed area, and was designed to imitate a pirate ship. The column was made to look like a ship mast using laminate that imitates wood. Blue colors were used in the space to represnet water and the sky. The image on the bottom right is an example of an exam room. This room is located in an area themed after the forest hideout where Peter Pan and all of his friends live.

Griesbach School Renovation


36 Major General Griesbach School was originally designed for children in kindergarten up to grade nine, but is now being renovated for kindergarten to grade six students. The assignment was to renovate the existing foods lab and wood shop and turn them into classrooms, suitable for grades one to three. A redesign of the library desk was also requested to make it more suitable for younger children. The floor plan on the left shows the layout of the new classrooms, with a variety of desk configurations, as well as the plan of the new library desk.

The concept for the redesign was a seedling which represents growth and nurturing. Curves were used to soften the space and a repeating motif of red and blue squares was used to tie into the existing design of the school. Shown directly below is the library desk. It is curved to tie into the concept and features the square motif. In the bottom right corner is a perspective of a reading nook that has been built into one of the classrooms. The square motif has been applied again in the bookshelves mounted above the bench and the shoe cubbies below the coat hooks.

37 To the left is a perspective of the hallway outside the entrance to the three classrooms that were created in the space previously occupied by the wood shop and the foods lab. A curved wall, which ties into the concept, was placed to allow for more gathering space around the classroom entrances and prevent overcrowding. The columns were designed with benches to make them more functional. The design on the columns also ties into the blue and red square motif used throughout the school flooring. The bulkhead above the entrance helps to define the entrance to the classrooms. On the wall across from the classroom entrances are bulletin boards composed of multiple squares to represent abstract tree tops. Below is an elevation of one of the classroom walls. A bookshelf has been built into the wall to allow for maximum space in the classroom and to provide more storage for the teachers. To the left of the built-in bookshelf are 2 bookshelves made of an assortment of square boxes arranged in the shape of trees. This arrangement ties back into the seedling concept and creates the tree shape without being literal.

38 Following the design, construction documents then had to be created for Major General Griesbach School. The image on left is the demolition plan for the school. Everything that had to be removed was marked for demolition with a dashed line.

The right image is the new floor plan. All new walls were drawn in, as well as any new millwork. All necessary dimensions needed to construct the new floor plan were added in, along with any necessary key notes needed to communicate the changes.

The drafting table shown in the above image was completed as part of the first year of a cabinetmaking apprenticeship. The table joinery consists of hand-cut dovetails, which were laid out and cut accurately to ensure a tight fit. The image directly to the right is of the table leg construction. A wedge attaches the stretcher to the legs and braces the table. The table was designed to be disassembled so that it can be easily transported. The image in the bottom right corner is of a footstool, which also features hand-cut dovetails. It is made of mahogany, with a contrasting maple stretcher.

The image directly above is of a credenza, which was built as a second year cabinetmaking apprentice project. The cabinet had to be built exactly as indicated on the provided drawings. Shown on the top right is the design of the top surface, a starburst veneer match consisting of ebony in the center with sycamore surrounding. Directly to the right is a close up of the drawers, featuring dovetail joinery. Also shown is the detailing on the legs, which consist of a quarter round insert that was turned on a lathe. At the top and bottom of the insert is a small lamb’s tongue carving which was done by hand.

The top left image is of a custom designed coffee table. The parameters of the project required a design of a table and a set of construction drawings, which were then followed by construction of the piece. The housing for the drawers was built of cherry plywood, while the drawers were built of solid maple. The top was veneered and has a solid cherry edge. The drawer faces were also veneered and care was taken to ensure that the grain lined up on both drawers. Under-mount drawer slides were used so that they would not be visible. This maintained the natural look of the piece but also ensured that the drawers would operate smoothly. The bottom left image is an elliptical table constructed out of walnut. The top has been veneered in a diamond match and edged with solid wood. The legs, shown in the image directly to the left have been tapered on all four sides for a slimmer look and have been carefully attached to the apron.

This custom cabinet was the final project required to complete an apprenticeship in cabinetmaking. This project demonstrates an attention to detail and the ability to read drawings and accurately build from them. All of the wood used was carefully selected to ensure that the color and grain was consistent and free from defects. The unit was constructed out of cherry and has an oil finish applied to it. The top image is of the veneer match on the top. Careful attention had to be paid to ensure that the grain lined up at the veneer joints. The top edge consists of solid cherry with a contrasting walnut reveal and has been mitered at the corners prior to being glued on. The image directly to the right is of the joinery used on the interior drawers. The finger joints were cut with machinery that had been carefully set up to ensure that the joint fit together seamlessly.
