The goal of this work is to learn how to implement all utility systems that are involved in a multi-family apartment project. To do so, a 3rd year Studio project is taken, so as to practice with a building that is designed by ourselves.

Therefore, all systems in all floors are drawn: from the underground parking lot to the rooftop, the position of electricity, water and gas supplies, sewage, heating and cooling, ventilation and emergency utilities is drawn and calculated, down to the detail of the position of sockets in a given apartment.
