You should refer to the list of criteria provided in the Checklist to understand what skills you are required to demonstrate in this section of the assessment. This Checklist outlines the Performance Criteria, Performance Evidence and Assessment Conditions you will be marked on.

Once completed you are required to submit this assessment to your assessor for marking.

Scenario

You are employed by RB Holdings as an Assistant Construction Manager; your role is to provide Joe Lurgano the Construction Manager with a wide range of assistance.

Joe has given you a set of plans for a new project that is due to start in a couple of weeks. The project is a residential single story dwelling for Mr and Mrs Brown at 1 Lake Rd Toronto NSW. He would like you to start preparing for the slabs and footings and has given you a number of tasks to do to ensure this stage of the job goes to plan and has a quality outcome.

Task 1.1

  1. Access the structural details in the plan set and the projects SMEC Testing Services Geotechnical Report to determine the following:

    1. What other Standard is used to inform the Site Investigation Report.

Site Soil Classification as per site report:

Other relevant standard:

  1. Using the NCC, check the the sectional size of the external wall and internal footing details against the soil classification

Complete the table below to record your analysis.

Construction Detail

NCC Specification

NCC Section Part and Clause

Toronto Project Complies

Yes/No

External Wall Detail

Garage/Kitchen Detail

Internal Detail

Slab:

  • Depth
  • Length
  1. Provide a brief summary of your findings to Joe Lugarno highlighting any issues with the compliance of the slabs and footings of the Toronto Project compared to the NCC. Suggest recommendations to him should any adjustments need to be made, including the appropriate industry professional that needs to be consulted.


Scenario

After the checks you made with the soil classification, piers have been added to the structural specification to support the slab. They are located at every corner and at 1800 centres to the outer edge of the slab only. Preliminary site works have been completed and piers are ready to pour. Joe has asked that you and the labourer go out to the site and do some checks before the concrete is placed. He said that the excavator did the set out for the piers and normally these are done correctly, however Joe would like you to double check. Once these have been done, he would like you to report back before he gives the go ahead for the concrete.

Task 1.2

  1. Describe at least four (4) steps you will take on site to determine the piers are located on the site correctly. You know that the boundary pegs are in place. Use notated sketching to assist in your report to Joe.

Place your report notes and sketch here:

  1. While you are on site checking the pier set out you notice that many of the pier holes have water and debris at the bottom. You have been told by concreters on other jobs that this is OK but you decide to check the NCC and determine what the requirements are. Use the table below to assist with your report to Joe.

(An unrelated example has been given to show the details required)

NCC Part and clause

Deem to Satisfy requirements

Example:

Part 3.6 - Glazing

Clause 3.6.2 (a)

“Glazing used in the perimeter of buildings and supported on all sides must comply with the appropriate provisions…”

Scenario

The piers have been poured and Joe wants you to start planning for the slab. Joe is still waiting on the structural specifications to be redrawn after your previous findings regarding the site soil classification. He needs you to check the NCC and make some notes on some materials that need to be ordered and termite barrier options.

Task 1.3

  1. Using the NCC and your previously determined soil classification, create a list of the structural steel sizes and damp proof membrane material requirements. Use the table below to record your list and include the NCC reference.

Material Description 

NCC reference and  Deem to Satisfy requirements

Footings:

External edge and internal beams

Slab

Damp proof membrane materials

  1. Using the NCC describe the termite protection options and what Australian Standard these options must comply with. Use the table below to record your options and include the NCC reference.

Building Element 

Termite management option

Slab perimeter

NCC Reference:

                                               

Penetrations/control joints

NCC Reference:

                                               

Australian Standard 

Scenario

Now that you have checked the footings and slab for compliance and familiarised yourself with the ancillary requirements for termite and damp proofing, Joe is confident that you can supervise the laying of the concrete. In order to carry this out he has asked that you create a checklist of the things that will need to be checked off before, during and after the concrete pour. Joe will review this to make sure you have everything covered to ensure the structural integrity and quality is maintained.

Task 1.4

Using the table format below as a guide, create your own table listing the critical checks that need to be carried out before, during and after the concrete pour. Describe the observations that you will be making for each of the items which will include Work Health Safety considerations.

An example has been shown for each stage.

Scenario

You are employed by RB Holdings as an Assistant Construction Manager; your role is to provide Joe Lurgano, the Construction Manager with a wide range of assistance.

You have previously been assisting Joe with the planning and supervision of the project at 1 Lake Rd Toronto NSW. He has asked you to develop a Quality Assurance checklist for the roof trusses to alleviate some issues that have occurred on previous jobs.

This procedural checklist will be used by site supervisors for projects designed with truss roofs.

You are to research manufacturer specifications and installation recommendations to provide a comprehensive procedural checklist to ensure that quality and structural requirements for the erection of roof trusses are met.

Your checklist should show at least three distinct stages for the transport, lifting, storage and installation requirements, which can be checked off by site supervisors during each stage.

You will use the RB Holdings word template (Attachment A) to format your document. You may include images or drawings to assist with your document.

Task 3.2: Check structural roof elements for compliance

Scenario

Joe Lugarno has emailed and asked you to go out the 1 Lake Rd Toronto project to check on some issues that have arisen from a recent frame inspection by the certifier. The certifier has rejected the seasoned pine strutting beam over the family room and the lintel that has been installed in the sliding door (DO1) to the family room. Luckily the roof is not yet loaded so any alterations can be made reasonably quickly.

Joe has attached the following image to the email that details the current situation with the roof and ceiling members. He has also supplied a formatted table with some specifications already completed that can be used for your response.

Using the AS1684.2 and associated supplements determine the correct size for the following members:

This product is made by ‘Habitech Systems’ and offers some good thermal and acoustic advantages and is an emerging technology that is an alternative to the conventional brick veneer construction.

You are to research the manufacturer specifications and installation recommendations to provide a comprehensive report back to Joe so he can advise the clients if it can be used in their project. The following items will need to be included in your report:

  1. An introduction to the product - what are its advantages and possible challenges
  2. The bracing capacity to support a roof structure
  3. Its compliance with the NCC and any other standards that may apply. Is there a deemed to satisfy solution or will it need a performance solution
