Craft Technology is focused on practical skills as well as a knowledge of technology used in current building practice. There are a number of aspects to Craft Technology:
• Sustainable building techniques,
• Building information modelling
• Practical skills all blended with core business and management comprehension.
The course combines the practical skills with business to offer the student a wide range of options of further study or employment routes. It also develops the core technical skills in the specific areas of design, woodworking skills, building technology, and business knowledge. Building technology covers the various aspects of technology that make up the fabric of a building, from passive housing details to building information modelling.
The focus on workshop practices develops; kinetic skills, critical analysis, creative abilities and design thinking, with solutions developed, and final designs demonstrated on the scale models produced. These skills are developed over three years, each year expanding on the knowledge and skills of the previous year, producing a comprehensive understanding of timber as a building medium, and how to best use it as a component part of the building envelope.
