IMPORTANT STATEMENTSCheating and PlagiarismBoth cheating and plagiarism are totally unacceptable and the University maintains a strictpolicy against them. It is YOUR responsibility to be aware of this policy and to actaccordingly. Please refer to the Academic Registry Guidance athttps://icity.bcu.ac.uk/Academic-Registry/Information-for-Students/Assessment/Avoiding-Allegations-of-CheatingThe basic principles are:Don’t pass off anyone else’s work as your own, including work from “essay banks”.This is plagiarism and is viewed extremely seriously by the University.Don’t submit a piece of work in whole or in part that has already been submitted forassessment elsewhere. This is called duplication and, like plagiarism, is viewedextremely seriously by the University.Always acknowledge all of the sources that you have used in your courseworkassignment or project.If you are using the exact words of another person, always put them in quotationmarks.Check that you know whether the coursework is to be produced individually orwhether you can work with others.If you are doing group work, be sure about what you are supposed to do on yourown.Never make up or falsify data to prove your point.Never allow others to copy your work.Never lend disks, memory sticks or copies of your coursework to any other studentin the University; this may lead you being accused of collusion.By submitting coursework, either physically or electronically, you are confirming that it isyour own work (or, in the case of a group submission, that it is the result of joint workundertaken by members of the group that you represent) and that you have read andunderstand the University’s guidance on plagiarism and cheating.Students should be aware that, at the discretion of the module co-ordinator, courseworkmay be submitted to an electronic detection system in order to help ascertain if anyplagiarised material is present.Electronic Submission of WorkStudents should also be aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that work submitted inelectronic format can be opened on a faculty computer and to check that any electronicsubmissions have been successfully uploaded. If it cannot be opened it will not be marked.Any required file formats will be specified in the assignment brief and failure to comply withthese submission requirements will result in work not being marked.Students must retain a copy of all electronic work they have submitted and resubmit ifrequested.Late Submission Penalties
If you submit an assessment late at the first attempt then you will be subject to one of thefollowing penalties:If the submission is made up to two hours following the deadline, the mark that youachieve will be deducted by 10%. If this deduction takes you below the passthreshold then you will be capped at that threshold;If the submission is made between two hours and up to 5 days following thedeadline, your mark will be capped at the pass threshold;If the submission is made after 5 days following the deadline, your work will bedeemed as a fail and returned to you unmarked.If you submit a reassessment late then it will be deemed as a fail and returned to youunmarked.Learning Outcomes to be Assessed:1.Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between climate change and theconcept of sustainability and its implication to the build environment2.Evaluate sustainable construction/design solutions and critically reflect on goodpractice examples (national and international)3.Explore and analyse the role of the Project Manager in the delivery of sustainability ina construction context4.Critically analyse existing sustainable design criteria/principles and from thisformulate a range suitable for future developmentsAssessment Details:A portfolio of a number of topics, critically assessed from the point of view of a constructionproject manager who is concerned with sustainability.a).Of all the topics studied, your portfolio must include 3 summaries (each circa 1,000words) of different topics studied throughout the course. You may wish to arrange this inthe form of a SWOT analysis (strengths weaknesses, opportunities and threats) or someother matrix facilitating the discussion of the opportunities and constraints of each topic areain sustainable construction. You must always, however, make sure the topic is discussed ina way that is relevant to construction project managers, who have their ownspecificconstraints, opportunities and priorities.b).You mustalsowrite a synthesis piece (1,000 words) based on a case study, showinghow three topics were considered and incorporated into that building/construction project.One of these topics MUST be different to the three already covered.Example: topic 1 - climate change, topic 2 – energy efficiency, topic 3 – biodiversity.
