CEE 324: Industrialized Construction

The course will present driving forces, comprehensive concepts, technologies, and managerial aspects of Industrialized Construction. Further a series of case studies of successful and failed industry implementations in Sweden, North America and Japan will be presented, showcasing process and technology platforms; use of renewable resources and other sustainable design and construction practices. The contrast between industrialized construction practices in Sweden, the U.S. and other countries is highlighted. Project-orientated vs. product-oriented approaches are essential, along with business models and strategies for industrialized construction companies and their opportunities for innovations. The course includes lectures, case studies, and course group-project assignments with leading companies in the industry.nnVisiting lecturer Dr Jerker Lessing, one of Sweden's leading experts on industrialized construction with more than 15 years of experience in this field, is giving this cours more »

This is a unique opportunity to learn about this comprehensive, emerging construction concept. Dr Lessing's research at Lund University has pioneered the area of industrialized construction and established models and strategic perspectives that are widely adopted throughout academia and industry. Dr Lessing has published articles and books and he frequently lectures on the topic in Sweden and internationally. He is the Director and General manager of Research and Development at BoKlok, an industrialized house-building company which is a joint venture of the construction company SKANSKA and furniture giant IKEA. The class will be taught as a condensed two week course. Readings and discussions will be organized in the weeks before the lecture component of the class, a group project after. During weeks 1-5, class will not meet regularly and only meet a few times for reading discussions and guest speakers. When they occur, these meetings will be held either Tuesday or Thursday 8-9am in Y2E2 292A. A detailed class schedule will be available before the start of the quarter.nnNotes:nAttendance Mandatory. No Exam. Case and Problem Discussion. CR/NC and Auditing Not Allowed.nEligible for SDC Building & Infrastructure Development concentration area requirement.nnNumber of students limited to 20; prerequisites: CEE100 or equivalent. Please direct questions to jerker.lessing@boklok.se or adusser@stanford.edu and co

CEE 325: CapaCity Design Studio

Silicon Valley¿s rapid expansion has created explosive urban development in a fragile and under-prepared natural context. Delicate coastal ecology and rapid urbanization (expanding technology headquarters, new residential housing, parking, services, etc.) are competing for space. The same land also serves the regional functions of transport, open space, recreation, water supply, flood protection and wastewater treatment. Compounding the problems between these competing factors are global climate change instabilities increasing the certainty of catastrophic flooding, infrastructure collapse, and other urban resilience challenges.nnStudents will be immersed in a process that allows them to understand and spatially identify these risks, develop a vocabulary and an understanding of innovative tools to respond to them, and then work with expert practitioners to create unique design responses. Students will be provided with urban design frameworks (for planning, site development, and conserv more »

The same land also serves the regional functions of transport, open space, recreation, water supply, flood protection and wastewater treatment. Compounding the problems between these competing factors are global climate change instabilities increasing the certainty of catastrophic flooding, infrastructure collapse, and other urban resilience challenges.nnStudents will be immersed in a process that allows them to understand and spatially identify these risks, develop a vocabulary and an understanding of innovative tools to respond to them, and then work with expert practitioners to create unique design responses. Students will be provided with urban design frameworks (for planning, site development, and conservation) combined with advanced sustainable design concepts (such as resource co-optimization, adaptable infrastructure platforms, and high performance urban ecology) by working with expert lecturers and in small groups. Students will ultimately develop a series of visual and technical presentations to propose a final thesis for a local intervention that could be replicated in other coastal contexts globally.nnThis course has been designed to develop student learning through a project-based format. Students will be organized into design teams of 3 or 4 and will have the semester to collaborate with partners on an interdisciplinary proposal including policy and design recommendations.
