Hello!

Exam is in a few days. Here's my first attempt at the Site Design Vignette.

I had questions on whether any walkways was needed from the service road to the service entrance or if any of the walkways needed to go to the door or can end at the entrance rectangle.

Besides that any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

How does this look? Should the ducts align to the underside of the joists? or can they be centered in the space above the lighting clearance? Thank you!

Greetings,

1. Where I have the fixtures in the File Room / Samples, would these be considered over-lit because they are too close to the wall?

2. Is there a certain distance that the diffusers and return air grilles need to be separated?

Any comments and feedback is appreciated.

i'm finding mac/safari print screens work as CMD+SHIFT+3 for FULL SCREEN print screen but /not/ as CMD+SHIFT+3 for scroll print screen.

i've spent some aggravating time trying to get some screen captures to send in some vignettes from the ARE workspace to NALSA (and to post here) and i have resorted to taking photos of the screen with my camera.

CMD+SHIFT+3 acts very erratically and actually after trying for the third or fourth time it just crashed out of my ARE vignette workspace. fortunately i also went ahead and tried a couple of CMD+SHIFT+3 and was able to grab a screenshot of my work.

hope that helps others.

running yosemite and safari 10.0.2

cheers

hi all,
am i missing anything on this one?
in particular did DORF mention something in the NALSA prep videos (awesome by the way) about the little swale at contours #5 (125'), #6 (120') and #7 (125')? i've written them down in a grid so as to not lose track but want to make sure this is the correct way of drawing them.
THANKS
jon

Please see my attempts at all the BDCS vignettes. Testing in 4 days! Any feedback much appreciated :) FYI, for the stairs vignette, I made the stairs 56" wide (4" handrail each side and 48" clear) +Michelle NCARB

This is my first try at the Building Vignette. Any comments would be appreciated!

After reviewing this, I'm realizing that some of my rooms may be a little narrow...is there a requirement to have a specific proportion - I can't seem to find it in the directions- all I see in the sample failing solution is "room has poor aspect ratio".

Thank you!

I know the plaza looks unusual but are there any mistakes for this solution?

The drive is encroaching in the utility easement.

Last attempt, testing tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon. Do you need 18" or 36" in front of Executive Desks? +Michelle NCARB +Nick NCARB

+Ryan Tyni and +Christina Zorn - Allow 18" clear along the curved front of exec desks. Christina, good catch on the backwards file cabinet and bookcases. Ryan, I'm not sure the side chair in RBO opposite the worktable is working. Clearance to get past that spot is super tight. Otherwise looks pretty good.

This is my attempt on site design vignette. Comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks for your review!

What would be an acceptable percentage that we could go under or above the required pedestrian plaza area?

Hey +Nazanin K. This solution is close, but one major thing to point out. Your drive is currently one way -- meaning if I get to the very last spot I have to turn completely around and go back. Per the Program, drive-through circulation is required and dead-end parking is prohibited. With just a couple minor adjustments, this can easily be achieved in your solution above.

Also, be care of all the extra coniferous trees planted. They really inhibit views - view from the Restaurant to the Pond and the OT main entrance from Bently Ave.

+/- 10% is fine on the Plaza size.

Hope this helps.

Good Morning All,

this is my first attempt at the NCARB site design vignette. If any one could provide comments I would appreciate them.
Thanks..

Overall, it looks pretty good +Brendon Duffy. A couple of notes for you.

- You may want to rotate the OT so the entrance is visible from both directions of Bentley Ave.
- Also, make sure that all 3 of the accessible parking spaces are within the 100' of the OT entrance.
- The service drive should attach to an edge of the Restaurant service entrance pad. Not run right over it.

Hope this helps.

I have a question about determining the largest duct depth on a floor (specifically the 2nd floor). Do we consider the double height space separately? If the double height space had a max duct depth of 20-inches, and the remainder of the 2nd floor had a max duct depth of 18-inches, would we use 20-inches or 18-inches as our max duct depth when designing the single height 2nd floor spaces? (I am assuming the double height space is separated by bearing walls and has a different roof height than the 2nd floor, similar to the condition in the NCARB practice vignette). Testing on 1/23/17. Thanks! +Ryan NCARB +Michelle NCARB

+John O  - You've answered your own question: if the double height space is completely separated from the rest of the 2nd floor, then yes, it's designed separately as well.
