Description

The learner will gain an understanding of how to use basic surveying equipment to set out works. The student will also learn how to produce site layout and sectional construction drawings and carry out computations for construction purposes.

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Produce vertical sections of roadworks, foul and surface water sewers.

2.

Measure areas and volumes of earthworks.

3.

set out position of works and set up profiles for vertical control on site.

4.

produce drawing using drafting software of a site layout for a proposed development

Module Assessment Strategies

Project work (Team work):

Produce a site layout drawing for a proposed works on drafting software.

Produce longitudinal sections for proposed works using drafting software.

Calculate areas and volumes relating to proposed works.

Set up profiles to set out a length of sewer on collage campus.

Continuous Assesment:

Series of assignments/problems set throughout the term.

 

 

Indicative Syllabus
