Construction Measurement is the measurement and quantification for cost planning and documentation of building works and associated civil engineering works. In this unit, you will learn how to measure, quantify and cost construction work including civil engineering works associated with buildings. You will be referring to Australian Standard Method of Measurement (ASMM) of Building Works as a uniform basis for the measurement of building works. With the comprehensive knowledge of measurement, you will then gain in-depth knowledge of unit rate estimating and project pricing associated with the acquisition of materials and labour on building and construction sites. Having fundamental knowledge, you will then be directed to software to perform 2D and 3D electronic measurement and estimating associated with Computer Aided Design (CAD). You will be introduced to architectural and project coordination software to signify the integral part of cost planning in a construction project.
