    Subject Outline
    This subject covers key elements of building services
    and sustainability. We will look at main building
    services such as heating, cooling, lighting, water,
    sewage etc., and how these relate to occupants’
    comfort. Sustainability is one of the key elements
    of residential (homes), commercial (offi ces and
    retail) and other building types (schools, hospitals,
    factories, etc.) Most services we will discuss during
    the semester use energy and other resources, so we
    need to understand how to design and plan for these
    effi ciently.
    Material covered in this subject includes heating,
    cooling, ventilation and air conditioning and related
    comfort issues of indoor environment quality, room
    acoustics and sound isolation. The subject will also
    address services for vertical transportation, fi re
    safety, lighting and electrical, telecommunications
    and building management systems; as well as special
    servicing conditions including hospitals, auditoria,
    industrial buildings, commercial kitchens and district
    Strategies and technologies for improving systems
    effi ciency will also be considered, such as displacement
    ventilation, evaporative cooling and radiant cooling
    systems, active solar heating and cooling systems,
    façade systems, solar technologies, hybrid (mixed-
    mode) systems, as well as environmental rating tools
    for comparing building performance, and post-
    occupancy evaluation.
    On completion of the subject, you should be able to:
    •  Understand the principles and techniques of
    environmental control systems.
    •  Integrate environmental controls and services into
    architectural designs in a sustainable manner.
    Our aims are:
    •  To give you the language and concepts to
    understand what is needed to make homes and
    buildings operational and comfortable.
    •  Where possible teach you useful rules of thumb
    •  To support you in your future career in the
    industry through teaching you about regulations
    and tools.
    Online Learning
    Every Friday afternoon, online material will be made
    available to the students. The online learning content
    will include an online lecture, readings from internet
    resources and from the recommended textbook, and
    videos. Students will be required to go through this
    content before the following week’s lecture.
    Face-to-face lectures happen for two hours every
    Tuesday at 4:15pm in the JH Mitchell Theatre, Peter
    Hall Building (former Richard Berry). They will follow
    up on the online content and introduce new concepts
    on the week’s topic. The lectures will usually consist
    of about an hour given by Xavier, followed by a
    guest lecturer who will take over the second part.
    The lecture slides will be made available before the
    lecture. Lectures are recorded and the recordings
    uploaded on the LMS within a day of the lecture.
    The weekly quiz can happen at any point during the
    Tutorials are where students meet with their tutors.
    Tutorials run every week for two hours on Thursdays
    and Fridays. During the tutorials, the tutors will go
    through the contents in more detail, and students will
    have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the
    content. The format of tutorials varies from week to
    week, with the fi rst 5 weeks focused on Assignment 1,
    and the rest of the semester shared between normal
    in-class tutorial sessions, self directed sessions and
    site visits. Please note that tutorial attendance is a
    hurdle, and that all students are required to attend
    at least 80% (9 tutorials out of 11) of their tutorials
    in order to complete the subject.
    Time Commitments
    Time commitment for this subject is 120 hours, that is
    2 hours of lectures, 2 hours of tutorials, and 6 hours
    of reading, review and individual work per week.
    Your assessments have been designed with this time
    commitment in mind.

    Social Media
    We will also be integrating social media as a teaching
    tool into the subject to improve communication
    between the EBS team and the students. We have
    set up a facebook page available at:
    This platform will be used to share useful online
    resources, as well as being a discussion platform. All
    critical information that you will need to successfully
    complete the subject will be available on the LMS,
    so students who do not have access to facebook, or
    who voluntarily choose not to participate will NOT
    be disadvantaged.
    While the students are encouraged to post and
    interact, activity will be monitored and any post that
    is irrelevant, disrespectful in any way or which can
    constitute misconduct will be censored.
    ebs.TV is also an experimental Youtube project
    that we have developed a year ago as a teaching
    support tool.
    Learning Management System (LMS)
    The LMS will be the one place where all the material
    will be uploaded to. There is a section for every
    one of the 3 components (Online Learning, Lectures,
    Tutorials) and each component is broken down week
    per week.
    The LMS is also where we will be making
    announcements regarding important updates, and
    the FAQ section is here to serve as a platform for
    open discussion and sharing of resources.
    Owing to the large amount of material mde
    available on the LMS, the different components are
    colour coded for easier organisation. The colour-
    coding is as follows:
    Online Learning  Lectures Tutorials
    One week before the assignment submission, we will
    open a link on the LMS where students will be able
    to submit their works to Turnitin.
    All content (including lecture recordings) are
    uploaded onto the LMS.
    Students are expected to check their emails at least
    onece a day.

    Assignment 1
    Residential Services and Sustainability Design Assessment
    The assessment component of this subject is broken down into 3 parts:
    1. Assignment 1 (30%)
    2. Weekly Quizzes (30%)
    3. Final Examination (40%)
    This assignment will assess the students’ understanding
    of residential EBS, and communicate their designs in
    plans, sections, diagrams, and in words.
    You are an ESD (environmentally sustainable design)
    consultant and your client is a family of 4 (2 adults
    and 2 children.) They own a plot of land in one of
    Melbourne’s inner suburbs, and already have a
    design for the house they want to build. They have
    hired you to work on the design of the house and
    integrate passive design strategies and services
    to provide comfort to the occupants in the most
    sustainable manner.
    Your task is to produce a set of 10x A3 drawings to
    document the strategies you are recommending:
    •  1 site plan
    •  1 house plan showing material and construction
    •  1 house plan showing passive thermal, solar
    and ventilation strategies
    •  1 house plan showing electrical/telecom layout
    •  1 house plan showing water supply
    •  1 house plan showing water drainage
    •  1 house plan showing heating strategies
    •  1 house plan showing cooling strategies
    •  1 page for resilient design
    •  1 First Rate assessment page
    Scope of Intervention
    As the main consultant on the project, you will
    be allowed a signifi cant amount of freedom to
    implement the strategies. However, there will be
    aspects of the original design that are not to be
    Aspects of the design that CAN be changed:
    •  Siting and orientation
    •  Construction types
    •  Construction materials (including fi nishes)
    •  Position, size and type of doors and windows
    •  Wall height
    •  Roof type
    •  Furniture layout
    •  Landscaping
    Aspects of the design that CANNOT be changed:
    •  Position of internal and external walls.
    •  Room allocation (e.g. a room tagged as a
    bedroom has to remain a bedroom).
    •  Room size (except when affected by wall
    •  Position of fi ttings and fi xtures (e.g. toilets,
    faucets, showers, island benches, built-in storage
    •  Mirroring is not allowed.
    •  Adding or removing rooms (including garage)
    from the house is not allowed. Adding a
    detached, external shed is allowed.
    Marks and Assessment
    The assignment is marked out of 100 and represents
    30% of the total marks for the subject.
    Pre-submission Assessment
    During the weeks leading to the submission of the
    assignment, drafts of the assignment will be assessed
    as a work in progress. Failure to demonstrate
    adequate weekly progress on specifi c sections will
    results in a 25% penalty on the fi nal mark of the
    said section.
    Please note that the draft assessment will assess the
    PROGRESS of the assignment, not its content. As long
    as progress is demonstrated, students will not be
    penalised for showing drafts that contain mistakes
    and will have the ability to add/modify content
    prior to the fi nal submission.
    Similarly, a draft approved by the tutor does not
    guarantee that the content is necessarily correct,
    and it is the responsibility of the student to ensure
    the accuracy of the assignment based on the content
    delivered in class, the resources provided online and
    the independent research conducted.
    Sections under the pre-submission
    The following sections will be assessed in the following
    weeks. The minimum list of requirements is outlined.
    Failure to meet any of these requirements will incur
    the 25% penalty.

    requirement for the pre-submission assessment. The
    requirements for the fi nal submission are far more
    comprehensive. Refer to the assignment matrix for a
    more compresensive list of assessment criteria.
    It is very important that student keep up with the
    weekly tasks of the assignment right from the start
    of semester. The assignment is long and complex,
    and unless you diligently work on it from Tutorial 1,
    you cannot expect to score a high mark, especially
    since a lot of what is required for the last few A3
    drawings will build from the content of the fi rst A3
    drawings of the assignment.
    A separate assignment template has been prepared
    and is available on the LMS. Please refer to this
    document for layout ideas.
    Assignment 1
    Assignment 1
    Final Submission
    The submission date is Monday 28 August 2017
    All the drawings have to be submitted in hard copy
    to the assignment chute of the Baldwin Spencer
    Building before 5:00pm, and in soft copy onto the
    LMS via turnitin before midnight.
    Each CALENDAR day the assignment is late will incur
    a 10% penalty for the hardcopy submission, and a
    5% penalty for the online submission.
    Each hardcopy submission needs to be accompanied
    by a signed coversheet. Submissions without a signed
    coversheet will not be accepted, and late penalties
    will apply until a proper coversheet is submitted.
    Tips and advice before submitting
    •  When using colours for services, try to be as
    logical as possible (eg blue for cold water and
    red for hot water) and make sure the colours
    contrast well (blue and pale blue on the same
    drawing is a bad idea). Avoid yellow as much as
    possible. Good colours to use are red, blue, dark
    yellow, green, purple, orange, brown.
    •  Same goes for line types - if you are using
    different dashed lines, make sure they are
    clearly distinguishable from one another. Also
    remember that dashed lines can also represent
    services going overhead or underground.
    •  Colours and line weights look different on a
    computer screen and on paper. Do test prints
    early to make sure all the drawings will print
    exactly the way you wanted them to.
    •  For those using AutoCAD, make sure your plot
    styles are set properly for line thickness, colour
    and type. If you don’t know how to use plot
    styles, export your plans from AutoCAD and add
    the coloured lines in InDesign or Illustrator.
    •  If you are using Photoshop, set your resolution
    fairly high (minimum of 400DPI) since PS will
    rasterise the plans and you may lose some of the
    fi ner details if you work at low resolutions.
    Please make sure to retain a digital copy of all
    your work before submitting.
    •  Do regular backups of your work, regardless of
    whether you are working a computer or doing
    the drawings by hand.
    •  For those using a computer, keep updated copies
    of your work on an external hard drive or on a
    cloud storage service like Dropbox or Google
    Drive. Hit the save button regularly!
    •  For those drawing by hand, have more
    photocopies of your house plan than you think
    you might need.
    •  Computer problems and coffee spilled on your
    plans are NOT valid justifi cations for an extension.
    •  Do not wait until the last minute to print. There
    are around 300 students enrolled in this subject
    (not counting other submissions that may be at
    the same time) and if all of you are queing at the
    printroom at 4:00pm, you will have a hard time!
    The MSD printroom is on level 1 (atrium level) but
    the A3 printers tend to break down when they
    print high volumes across the entire day. Some
    libraries can print A3 B/W, but most will not do
    A3 colour.
    •  Other places not far from the campus
    where you can print include:
    1. Scotts Printing on Swanston Street, opposite
    2. Dinkums, further down Swanston Street
    (opposite the RMIT design Hub)
    3. AusCopy on Little Latrobe
    4. Offi ceworks QV, accessed from Swanston
    or Russel Streets. This particular
    Offi ceworks is fairly busy all year round,
    so expect queues there. Most Offi ceworks
    will have printing facilities. 
    •  Allow a lot more time than you think you need
    for the printing. Ideally, you would aim to have
    done all printing on the eve or early on the day
    of submission.
    •  Generate and print your coversheet as soon as
    it is available. Do not wait until the last minute
    to do it as it is easy to fi ll it incorrectly when
    you are rushing.
    •  There will be no stationery at the submission
    chute for you to sign your coversheet or staple
    your sheets together.
    It is equally important for students to understand
    concepts and principles, and communicate them
    effectively graphically and in words.
    Effective communication does not necessarily mean
    pretty or stylist - we are aware that many students
    at this stage of their studies are still developing their
    drawing and representational skills, and that for
    many, English is not a fi rst language. However simple
    clean drawings and a simple accurate language can
    be powerful communication mediums.
    Communication starts to fail when the person reading
    the assignment needs to start guessing what has been
    shown; this can come down to any number of reasons,
    from the use of inappropriate volabulary, incorrect
    sentense structures, to the use of wrong colours or
    line types, or poor printing quality.
    Students should be mindful of this as even if there
    are signs in an assignment that suggest that the
    concepts have been understood, if not presented
    properly the assignment will be marked down on its
    Mark allocation
    Each sheet of the assignment is weighted equally
    at 10% (for a total of 100% for the 10 sheets).
    Please note that even if no marks are allocated to
    referencing, the complete absence of references
    and sources will be penalised.
    As mentioned previously, the quality of the
    presentation is an important aspect of the assignment,
    and for each sheet, 40% of the marks will be
    allocated to presentation, and 60% to the content.
    Submission requirements and checklist
    Besides the content requirement, the submissions
    will also need to follow a specifi c format. Use the
    checklist below to make sure you are are fulfi lling
    all the required format. Failure to satisfy one or
    more of the criteria will result in a 10% penalty.
     Drawings to be printed single-sided colour A3

     Bound (spiral, comb, thermal, ring etc)
    Plagiarism is the act of representing as one’s own original work the creative works of another, without appropriate
    acknowledgment of the author or source.
    Collusion is the presentation by a student of an assignment as his or her own which is in fact the result in whole
    or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of
    two or more students in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct.
    Plagiarism and collusion are offenses taken very seriously by the University, and penalties can range from a
    zero grade in the assignment to expulsion from the University in extreme cases.

    Plagiarism and Collusion
    Assignment 1
    Assignment Matrix
    The assigment matrix lists all the elements that need to be included in the assignment. The students are advised
    to work according to the matrix, as the latter is what will be used by the tutors to mark the assignments. Simply
    addressing each criterion will allow you to pass the assignment. However, highmarks will be awarded for
    innovative, sustainable, effi cient and elegant solutions.

    Weekly Quizzes
    Every week, a quiz will be conducted during the
    Tuesday lecture. There will be 11 quizzes over the
    semester, starting in Week 2, with each quiz worth
    3% of the semester’s assessment. Your best 10 quiz
    results will make up 30% of your total class grade.
    There will be 6 assessible questions in each quiz
    and every question will be based on the information
    presented in the online content for that week.
    The quizzes can be conducted at any point during
    the lectures using Poll Everywhere, and you will have
    50 seconds to answer each question in the lecture
    theatre before the polling for each question closes.
    Attendance at the lectures is required to participate
    in the quizzes, so you should consider deferring your
    enrolment in this subject if you have clashes, or can’t
    commit to Tuesdays between 4:15pm and 6:15pm.
    If a student misses any quizzes he/she will need to
    have a relevant medical certifi cate or other excuses,
    in order to receive an exemption for that week’s quiz.
    Setting up your PollEv
    Students are pre-registered and only need to sign in
    the EBS Poll in order to particpate in the quiz.
    Step 1: Open your browser and go to:
    Step 2: Click on login/signin
    Step 3: Enter your student email. The format should
    be username@student.unimelb.edu.au
    Your username is the same one you use to
    log onto the LMS
    Step 4: Enter the password ebs2017
    Step 5: Login
    The interface may be slightly different on a laptop,
    tablet or mobile phone, but the process is the same.
    A Poll Everywhere mobile application exists, but we
    will not be able to provide support if you choose to
    use it.
    Final Exam Hurdle Requirement
    Student Policy
    The 2-hour fi nal exam will consist of 10 written
    questions, and can include sketches and diagrams.
    Students will be provided with a practice exam
    during the Week 11 tutorial. The exam will not test
    students on their ability to remember facts - it will
    mainly test that the students can take the information
    from the subject and use it in a logical and analytical
    It is open book, meaning that students are allowed to
    bring any printed subject material and other paper
    resources with them in the exam. However, we do
    encourage students to spend time preparing and
    sorting their exam notes and be very selective in
    what to bring in. Only one binder and one text book
    will be allowed inside the examination room.
    The exam is worth 40% of the subject and has a
    hurdle requirement, with a pass mark of 40%.
    One of the University’s requirements is that students
    need to attend at least 80% of their tutorials in
    order to complete the subject (which adds up to 9
    tutorial sessions out of 11). Attendance is a hurdle
    requirement for this subject. Students who do not
    meet this hurdle will receive an NH grade for the
    Attendance can only be waivered for unforseen
    circumstances (eg medical emergencies) and need to
    be supported by proper documentation (eg medical
    certifi cates). Note that circumstances related to work
    and family commitment, clashes with other subjects,
    public transport delays etc are NOT considered
    unforseen. Tutors reserve the right to mark students
    as absent if they are consistently late
    Please familiarise yourself with the student policy - this document contains a list of policies that are relevant
    for students. A copy of the student policy can be found on the LMS. Please note that any subject requirement
    outlined in the handbook takes precedence over the student policy.
    Assessment Notes
    Weekly Outline
    Week 1 will introduce you to the subject content,
    structure and assessment. The standards expected
    from students will be made clear, and we will
    draw a roadmap of what the following 12 weeks
    will be like. There will be a presentation of past
    student experience, and Jim will give insights from
    his experience in the industry and the importance of
    understanding the concepts taught in EBS.
    The fi rst quiz will be run during the lecture, but will
    not be assessed. During tutorials, your tutors will
    introduce you to Assignment 1 and will distribute all
    the required materials.
    Week 2 will introduce basic principles and
    terminology of passive design and how it can be
    implemented in residential projects in particular. The
    material covered in Lecture 2 is directly relevant to
    the 1. Site Plan, 2. Material and Construction Plan,
    3. Passive Thermal Plan and 10. Energy Assessment
    A quiz will be run during the lecture, and will be
    assessed from then on.
