Description

Analysing, description and measurement, in accordance with ARM, of  -  basements, piling, retaining structures, underpinning, waterproofing, concrete joints + external services (water, drainage) + siteworks (pavings, edges, fencing, grassing, planting) + demolitions, alterations + falsework, waste water treatment construction. Measurement software will be an essential element of the learning practice in this module.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Analyse, describe and measure basements, piling, retaining structures, underpinning, waterproofing, concrete joints

2.

Appraise, schedule, describe and measure external services  -  watermain with associated fittings and chambers; foul and surface water drainage

3.

Inspect, schedule, describe and measure 'siteworks' ('Surface Paving, Fencing and Landscaping' as per ARM)  -  pavings, edgings/kerbs, fencing/boundary walling, grassing, planting

4.

Demolitions and alterations  -  study 'as is' and 'proposed work' drawings, distinguish the relevant 'demolition' and 'alteration' work areas, describe and measure for inclusion in a Bill of Quantities in accordance with ARM4

5.

Describe and measure construction of structure such as 'waste water treatment plant' so as to consider 'falsework', 'concrete work' and 'reinforcement' in the context of complex concrete building construction

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.

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.
