This week the students were very busy! A lot of time was spent refining the design in order to create construction documents and order materials. Although the project is now slightly behind schedule, the students’ design has improved greatly since last week. Mock ups were made of the panel construction design, as well as Sketchup and Revit 3D models.
The students were also fortunate enough to visit the offices of Cushing Co. and Chicago Metal Rolled Products, where they were given tours and information regarding their project. Everyone learned a lot, and we are optimistic that the finished product will be great for the National Public Housing Museum and for the surrounding community.
