Architectural Technology

Welcome

In the School of Architectural Technology, we excel at teaching visualization and design, and give students a sound education in design development, graphic communication, legislation, building science and structure.

Graduates from Sheridan’s two-year Architectural Technician program and three-year Architectural Technology diploma enter the workforce with two powerful competitive advantages: a nationally recognized credential and a superior, industry-approved education.

Highlights

Engaging students outside the classroom and making it count!

Architectural Technology's Dan Acimovic led three Architectural Technology students in a hands-on, co-curricular record (CCR) project for Habitat for Humanity. Yu Ning Su (Samma), Mackenzie Mehring and Helly Pragneshkumar Shah were instrumental in preparing building permit drawings for a renovation and an addition to an existing home in Milton, owned by Habitat for Humanity, slated to be given to a deserving family with a physically challenged child.

The project revolved around accessibility renovations and preparing existing and proposed drawings for a ground floor bedroom, a large bathroom renovation and an exterior elevation reconfiguration. Also required was the preparation of a site plan, floor plans and elevations, as well as building permit drawings, for a new exterior ramp that allowed for wheelchair access to the main floor.

Dan worked with Christina Wiggins, from the CCR office, to ensure that the student's hard work was recognized, and co-curricular credit given. What an outstanding example of how Sheridan students, as well as the community, can benefit from partnerships.

Bibliotech Provides a Searchable Database of Architecture's Industry Representatives

Juste Fanou, Architectural Technology alumni (2010) and adjunct faculty, recently launched a web app to provide architecture professionals with direct access to manufacturers' and suppliers' technical representatives.

Developed initially for industry, and with a search functionality by product or company, the Masterformat classification for each listing allows for an ease of use in an industry-standard categorization that is both convenient and familiar.

This type of searchable database is the kind of creative, technical solution that could assist students as well as professionals in searching for resources through an industry-specific database. With the ability to search by company name or by keyword, Bibliotech places industry resources at your fingertips and allows for the user to compile a list of favourites.

2019 Arch Tech design class

They say a picture's worth a thousand words!

These photos provide a glimpse into the hands-on, innovative environment in which our Architectural Technology students learn about foundational building design and the science behind them.

The first 4 photos are from Semester 3's Commercial Detailing class taught by Professor Dan Acimovic, a materials and methods expert.

The last 3 photos were taken in Professor Adrian Bica's 1st semester Residential Detailing class. Adrian excels at thinking up new and innovative ways of teaching that really resonate with his students.
