4CNMN001W: Introduction into the Built Environment

100 Word Individual Statement

Gus Hodge W1628151

My experience of this module is positive. Lectures started slowly but became more relevant,
tutors were patient, clear and professional in both approach and delivery. I found the Law
lectures heavy at times.
CW1 title was broad and difficult to process at first, I managed to write a pleasing essay and
enjoyed researching it overall.
CW2 has been very enjoyable but challenging, participating in a group and producing
I enjoyed the tasks set in both coursework’s and have learned a lot.
The effort and my time management have really helped me in developing throughout the
duration of this module.

James Jarvis W1662871

My overall experience from this course has been enjoyable. When we first sat down in the
lectures things started off slow and confusing but as the year progressed I started to learn
more and more form the lectures.
CW1 in my opinion was a very hard question to answer for our first essay due to It being
such an open subject however I learnt a lot researching.
CW2 was highly enjoyable because it allowed us to work in groups and build up our team
work skills. Throughout this course I have learned how to do my own independent studies.

Kevin O’Donovan W1663813

As a whole I found this module reasonably enjoyable but sometimes quite difficult. I found
the lectures generally to be good although not always relevant to the course. My favourite
lecture was probably pertaining to the evolution of house types and building styles over the
last 300 years or so. I also enjoyed the economics lectures, I found the law lectures quite
Due to personal circumstances I had to defer CW1 so cannot comment on that. I enjoyed
CW2 and working with my team. I feel this module has helped me in both individual study
and working in teams.
Calla Plested W1598683
To date my course experience has proved to be both challenging and enjoyable. I found that
the content studied within Built Environment module was both pertinent and relatable to the
construction industry and similarly applicable to my current professional setting.
Initially, I struggled with grasping the required content and themes for discussion within
CW1; I found the title to be both broad and marginally ambiguous.
The CW2 group task was something I approached with trepidation however, the group was
extremely successful as all members participated and contributed content pertinent to each
individual’s relevant skill set.

Frances Charlotte Sangalang W1658785

I’ve developed further knowledge and skills from undertaking this module. I found that being
taught about plagiarism and how to reference at the beginning of the year was helpful and
informative, especially for coursework 1 essay. I have enjoyed the lectures e.g. law and
sustainability and being part of a group for coursework 2.
Being part of a group to produce posters and present to others was an enjoyable but
challenging experience, it has enabled me to work with other peers which has helped
develop my confidence. I enjoyed learning about the different types of dwellings throughout
the periods.

Jamie Sykes W1626335

I found this course useful, the lectures were straight forward and organised, the law lectures
were a heavy 3 lectures and may have been useful if the recap was smaller as we had to
rush through the new information. I did find this module most relevant to the industry. They
were all clear, knowledgeable and professional.
Coursework one was rather confusing at first due to the question being quite difficult to
understand what they wanted.
The coursework two I thought was good being in a group with others helped to build ideas
and understanding of the real-world situations.

Overall, the team worked effectively and collaboratively; each team member actively
contributed in researching and proposing a potential site for development. Each member
presented their proposed sites and after careful consideration and evaluation, the team
concluded that the site at Pistone, Buckinghamshire best fulfilled the required development
criteria, providing relevant sources of information in the production of the ‘for’ and ‘against’

It was strongly agreed that the research undertaken to present sites to the group helped
each member learn about the processes and information that are required by the Planning
Authorities when submissions are received. Additionally, it also presented members with a
lot of the common arguments put forward from residents regarding potential developments.

Next, it was agreed that it was efficient and advantageous to identify the products that would
be selected for the sustainable posters prior to the Eco-Build convention visit. It was the
collective responsibility of each member to research and select potential products via the
Eco-Build website and present to the rest of the group during following team meetings.

Products to be used for the site were quickly identified as Showersave Waste Water Heat
Recovery and Marsh RainCell Rainwater Harvesting. These products, combined with the
choice of site and location were seen to be the most beneficial. Team members were
presented with all information regarding these products and collectively agreed that they had
developed a distinct understanding into how these products worked and their advantages
within a dwelling. It is also worth mentioning that the Showersave product has now been put
forward to two students parent companies with a view of using them in their own

The group struggled to agree on products not suited to the site. It was agreed that these
products would be selected at Eco-Build, although within a team meeting it was decided that
Airlite Paint and Biotecture Living Walls would be good potential products to consider.
The group agreed to attend Eco-Build, seek presentations from the selected products and
attain information on Airlite, Biotecture and other potential non-site suitable products.
The discussions and product presentations at Eco-build helped the students to gain product
knowledge and their economical & sustainable value to the construction industry. It’s worth
noting that three students put forward Airlite Paint to their parent companies with a view of
using the product on projects.

As agreed, the group collectively designed the poster layout and content which Gus then
produced draft versions using AutoCAD as he has knowledge of this software. Each aspect
of the posters was critically analysed and amended to the team’s consensus.
Upon reflection, the team faced challenges but managed to collectively overcome them and
ultimately agreed on every aspect whilst respecting the views of every individual. If the team
were to change anything, it would be to practice the delivery of the presentation in more
detail as we feel this was the weakest point of our whole coursework submission.
