Construction Technology & Structural Principles

The study of Construction Technology is in effect the study of Structural Principles because it is the principles of structures that are used to plan the erection and demolition of a building structure

Construction Technology is to apply technical construction principles to the appropriate selection, integration and building of construction elements and components

About The Program

Structural principles can be thought of as the guidelines required to erect a building, ensuring acceptable materials and construction practices are used within the building. A building or structure must withstand the combination of loads and other actions to which it may be reasonably subjected.

Both Building Professionals and Builders are expected to be aware of and assess the structural integrity of a variety of structures found on building and construction sites, apply the structural principles behind the safe erection and demolition of a building structure classified within the NCC as Class 1 & 10 and Class 2 to 9 building structures.

Program Summary

 

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to apply structural principles to the building of:

  • large, high rise and complex buildings (open licensing classification with special reference to Type A buildings)
  • medium rise commercial and wide span buildings (medium rise licensing classification with reference to Classes 1 and 10 construction, Classes 2 and 3 to a maximum of 3 storeys, and Classes 4 to 9 to a maximum of 3 storeys
  • residential and low rise commercial buildings (low rise’ licensing classification with reference to Class 1 and 10 construction and Classes 2 to 9 with a gross floor area not exceeding 2000 square metres

Program Aims

This unit of competency supports the needs of Building Professionals, Registered Building Practitioners, Senior Managers within building and construction firms and other construction industry personnel responsible for ensuring the structural integrity of materials and building and construction work so that site safety and quality control measures are maintained during residential and commercial projects.

Outcomes

The Construction Technology & Structural Principles Program with CAS-BCM is well suited to those in the building construction industry and new to the industry who want to develop knowledge, skills and competencies to enable them to undertake job & project roles to ability to communicate effectively with building design professionals, and develop sound and safe practices in relation to structural procedures on site, responsibilities for overseeing and managing the demolition and/or erection of structures applicable to the construction processes of residential and commercial construction building projects.
