The  materials  for  this  par/cular  sec/on   of  the  building    have  been  chosen  for   their  durability  and  it  is  hoped  they  will   last  for  a  very  long  /me.     You  can  see  in  photo  3  a  close  up  of   the  roof  sec/on  displayed  in  photos  1   and  2.  The  materials  used  include     plywood  cladding,  structural  steel,   /mber  and  an  insect  screen.       Photo  3,   Zoe   Brain,   (2014)

WINDOWS   Sketch  1  shows  a  low  e   (emicity)  glass  system.  This   system  absorbs  radiant   energy  and  doesn’t  absorb   radiate  infrared  energy  as   much  as  normal  float  glass,   thus  it  is  a  more  efficient   window  system.      

Sketch  1,  Zoe  Brain,  (2014)  

You  can  see  in  sketch  2  a   normal  window  system   from  top  (at  the  lintel)  to   the  boSom  (sill  detail).

In  sketch  3  you  can  see  all  the   parts  of  the  raw  building   however  you  don’t  see  what   it  looks  like  when  a  window  is   installed  so  I’ve  shown  that  in   sketch  5,  where  you  can  see   the  use  of  /mber  placed   between  the  lintel  and  the   window  frame.  This  is  so  the   force  doesn’t    transfer  into   the  window  but  rather  the   wood  surrounding  it-­‐   otherwise  this  would   compress  and  thus  smash  the   window.    In  sketch  6  you  can   see  what  a  window  and  it’s   frame  looks  like  from  a  side   view.    

Above  is  a  detailed  sketch  of  the  produc/on   of  glass.  The  ingredients  of  glass  are  as   follows:     c.73%  Former  (silica)   c.14%  Fluxes  (Soda  ash/Potash/Lithium   Carbonate)   c.  9%  Stabilisers  (Limestone/Alumina/ Magnesia).   To  the  side  is  sketch  **  you  can  see   laminated  glass-­‐  this  has  a  plas/c  interlayer   in  between  it  so  that  if  it  smashed  it  doesn’t   shaSer.   You  can  see  the  difference  between  crystal   and  glass  in  sketch  **.  Glass  has  a  flowing   structure  because  it  is  a  very  slow  moving   liquid  (at  room  temperature).         Zoe  Brain  639  607  

Therefore  something  is  elas/c  if  it  springs  back  and  plas/c   if  it  doesn’t.    Generally  with  small  force  /mber  can  be   classed  as  elas/c  but  as  soon  as  you  increase  it  it  becomes   more  of  a  plas/c  type  shape  if  not  completely  deformed.    


Aluminium  doors  are  very  common  in  office  secngs  however   we  tend  to  mostly  use  /mber  frames  for  doors.  Above  is  a   sketch  of  a  door  and  its  different  aspects.     Zoe  Brain  639  607
