MEAS07008 2019 Measurement of Industrial Buildings
Analysis, description and measurement in accordance with ARM of various types of substructures (strip, raft, ground beam/pad in grid formation), steel reinforcement schedules, framed building (concrete, steel, timber), suspended flooring and mezzanine arrangements (timber, concrete, steel/metal), cladding systems, roofing to 'large' spans (industrial/factory buildings), specialist floor finishes for industrial situations, 'fit-out', metalwork. Measurement software will be an essential element of the learning practice in this module.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Analyse, describe and measure various types of substructures (strip, raft, ground beam/pad in grid formation) in accordance with ARM
Assess steel reinforcement schedules, know the relevance of the information contained therein, describe and measure the content in accordance with ARM
Categorise, describe and measure various types of framed construction (in-situ and precast concrete, steel, timber) together with suspended mezzanine and regular flooring (concrete, steel/metal, timber) - describe and measure in accordance with ARM
Evaluate, describe and measure metal cladding and roofing systems (roofing to large spans) as per ARM
Identify, schedule, describe and measure as per ARM - industrial floor finishes; 'fit-out' of industrial space; metalwork (steps, stairs, ladders, railings, etc.)
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. This will include online lectures (via adobe connect or similar), and guest lectures augmented by independent learning and directed learning. This approach addresses student learning needs. Moodle will be used to upload educational material (i.e. presentations and recordings of online lectures plus supplementary reading material) and as a means of assessment (e.g. quizzes, uploading assignments and journals). This blended approach brings students together to facilitate group learning.This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques.

2016-04-14 Building Construction Handbook Routledge
ISBN 9781317442165 ISBN-13 1317442164
Ideal for students on all construction courses Topics presented concisely in plain language and with clear drawings Updated to include revisions to Building and Construction regulations The Building Construction Handbook is THE authoritative reference for all construction students and professionals. Its detailed drawings clearly illustrate the construction of building elements, and have been an invaluable guide for builders since 1988. The principles and processes of construction are explained with the concepts of design included where appropriate. Extensive coverage of building construction practice, techniques, and regulations representing both traditional procedures and modern developments are included to provide the most comprehensive and easy to understand guide to building construction. This new edition has been updated to reflect recent changes to the building regulations, as well as new material on the latest technologies used in domestic construction. Building Construction Handbook is the essential, easy-to-use resource for undergraduate and vocational students on a wide range of courses including NVQ and BTEC National, through to Higher National Certificate and Diploma, to Foundation and three-year Degree level. It is also a useful practical reference for building designers, contractors and others engaged in the construction industry.
