BLAR11053 - Construction Fundamentals 2 (Carpentry)

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Construction Fundamentals 2 (Carpentry) will introduce you to the procedures, principles and methods of concrete construction and associated temporary works and related activities as used for residential buildings and other structures classified by the National Construction Code (NCC) as Building Class 1 or 10. You will learn common terms used in residential low-rise concrete construction. You will examine soil types and the implications for low-rise concrete constructions. You will complete practical components on- campus that will provide you with the foundations of theory application in these constructions.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Portfolio 100%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Feedback
The unit is a blend of practical skills and case study research which produce an end-of-term portfolio.
Recommendation
Progressive inspection of the portfolio should be introduced to ensure a measured completion of the task to avoid a spike in workload at the end of the term.
Action Taken

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Explain the common terms associated with residential low-rise concrete construction
  2. Classify the common types of soils indicating their potential effect on site preparation, excavation and concrete behaviour as related to residential low-rise concrete construction
  3. Describe the construction process related to structural and non-structural concrete elements related to residential low-rise concrete construction
  4. Construct temporary formwork and falsework associated with residential low-rise concrete construction.
