SSUD71-313: Commercial Construction and Engineering

Description

Commercial Construction and Engineering builds on the knowledge gained in Understanding Buildings and Structures & Materials. The environment and constraints impacting on a building construction project are analysed. Construction processes and materials common to many types of commercial building projects are examined. Processes for several ‘trades’ are discussed and construction techniques for significant components such as foundations and basements, concrete shafts and suspended floors. A range of significant plant and equipment is reviewed and other key site management issues considered.
