My notes for the Interior Layout vignette. keep in mind that these are really more for my way of working and that you should 1. verify against your own and 2. have a sense of humor while reviewing these. The notes include the flow diagrams, conference table layout and T44 layout diagrams that seem to have been purged from the old forum format. Also the first page is two very similar solutions I came up with and notes accompanying each to clarify the decision making process or to highlight what is wrong.
hope this helps and please let me know if there are any glaring errors or omissions.
well....since the forum doen't like small files instead of extra small files, my notes are not going to be posted in full but rather individual pages you'll have to re-assemble. sorry for the tease. and seems like the FTP is cashed too? is this still the case or what? in order to get these files to fit on the forum, I had to compromise quality so i hope you can still benefit from them. The text quality is fine, its the images that had to be compromised...but since were all experts at this, you'll be able to get what you need out of it.
***EDIT*** forgot to add, although probably not too much of a big help, my chart for laying out the spaces. if you care to read on.
If your like me then you spend the 15min tutorial period pre-laying out known code elements, charts, sections, etc to save valuable time durring the frenzy of the exam itself. On this particular exam, its just a chart. I can't read anything in that frenzy unless its ruled, so I rule it. easy. just fold over two sheets of your scratch pad and make a straght edge. either that or use the second pencil. I'm anal like that and prefer a pencil over a mouse any day...and I'm faster at it. whatever...besided the point. I've added the additional 'chart' attachment and here is my logic going from left to right on the column headings:
-Used: lets me know when I have placed the space. more of a safety net to not miss than to double up. the software prevents you from doubling up most spaces. I use a different type of mark for each floor so it all doesn't get confused.
-My Floor: with a 1 or 2, I label what program or where I think the space should go.
-Adjacency: don't draw horizontal lines thru here. will let you see the arcs more clearly. solid for Direct Access and dashed for near.
-Area: area, but I break it down into a single unit as opposed to aggregate area.
-Quantity: quantity since I changed the area approach
-Required: all things program, code, exiting, view.....
-Required Floor: place a 1 or 2 depending on program requirement
-Window/View: a little box to indicate the type of window. filled in means a 'dark' space either by requirement or by is very nature. obviously a custodian does not need light. I place '!!!!!' beside it if it is required to be dark or a window by program.
