Intro to the A.R.E. / Building Design & Construction Systems

Evolving Architect // "Intro to the A.R.E. / Building Design & Construction Systems"

Of all 7 Exams, this is the one Section that is likely the most ‘architectural.’

This Exam is all about the construction methods, materials, and tactile systems related to the architectural discipline. By nature, it is also a very broad exam that covers major material families like concrete, masonry, wood and steel, as well as miscellaneous systems like windows, plaster, roofing, and finishes (to name just a few).
