In this unit students will be looking at small to medium scale buildings and structures, their architecture, construction, structural, environmental characteristics, and site investigation. Integration of building services requirements into structural design and construction of small to medium scale buildings and structures are analysed. Students demonstrate application of materials in construction through precedence analysis, experimentation and documentation. Students will apply appropriate Australian standards and building codes and illustrate these through technical documentation.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate appropriate building system selection for small to medium scale buildings and structures.

2. Demonstrate knowledge of material properties and selection for building and architectural applications.

3. Demonstrate an understanding of the impact of historic precedence on contemporary construction.

4. Examine architectural and construction parameters in order to understand how structure, building services, and environmental performance integrate.

5. Apply relevant Australian standards and building codes.
