BLCN29003 - Construction Measurement

General Information

Unit Synopsis

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.

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 Postgraduate 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. Written Assessment 25%
2. Laboratory/Practical 40%
3. Case Study 35%

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%).

Unit learning Outcomes

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

  1. Critically analyse and describe the standard method of measurement for various building components
  2. Evaluate construction measurement and estimate software to select the most appropriate package for a given construction type
  3. Reflect, critically evaluate and integrate technology and measurement to cost construction projects.
