The intent of this assessment task is to demonstrate the application of structural principles to residential construction. Your trainer/assessor will guide you through the process to complete this assessment task.

Assessment Directions

For these assessments you will need to refer to the domestic plans and specifications from unit CPCCBC4012 (if you have not undertaken CPCCBC4012 your trainer/assessor will provide you with a copy of these documents).

Question 1

Refer to the plans you have been provided with and nominate which contract would be the best one to use for this project.

Question 2

Refer to the construction specification supplied to you and list two (2) examples of relevant standards.

Question 3

List two (2) workplace safety requirements under the OH&S Act that would be required during the house’s construction. Refer to WorkSafe Victoria website.

Question 4

Describe the planning and construction methods and the structural aspects for each of the following construction stages (concerns to load) using the plans provided to you as attachment to Unit 4012.

Your description of each stage should include at least one reference to the relevant section in the NCC and include a diagram.

  1. Site preparation
  2. Concrete footings/slab system
  3. Timber wall and roof framing system
  4. Masonry walls
  5. Roof cladding & rainwater distribution system

Question 5

Referring to the NCC, Volume 2, list an applicable Australian standard to the five (5) areas of construction. Prepare in specification format.

Question 6

Using the floor plan shown below, draw a section view through one external wall at the part indicated by the red line.

Question 7

Referring to plans provided to you, discuss in order, the type of industry professionals that must be consulted, and what specific information they would supply regarding design and structural integrity for this building. List four (4).

Question 8

When applying for a building permit, what structural information needs to be included in the application? List five (5).

Question 9

Discuss the structural role of metal and ply bracing in house frames. List the two (2) factors that are taken into consideration by the structural engineer when calculating their use and placement, and how it is applied to planning the construction work.

SECTION B: REQUIRED KNOWLEDGE

Assessment Task 2 - Written Questions

Instructions

You are required to provide a satisfactory response to each question below to complete this assessment.

Question 1

What is the difference between a simply supported beam and a continuous beam?

Question 2

  • What is the function of a cantilever member? Base your answer on its relationship to load path.
  • A cantilevered balcony on a house project is 1500mm out from the extended wall. Based on your answer to (1) above, what is the total length of the supporting beams?

Question 3

Name four (4) structural members used in a hand pitched (conventional) roof frame

Question 4

  1. Provide a description for the following terms:
  2. In the below formula, if the length of the rafter is 6.035 metres and the eaves overhang is 450mm, what is the Roof Load Width for the top plate calculations?
  3. A particular house by design must meet 23Kn/m wind force bracing on its southern wall. A 2400 x 900mm hardwood plywood bracing sheet provides 3.4KN bracing if fixed by Method A.

What is the minimum number of sheets that will need to be fixed to meet AS1684 requirements?

Question 5

Describe the structural performance of the following two concrete slabs:

Question 6

Refer to www.vwa.vic.gov.au and http://www.epa.vic.gov.au/business-and-industry websites and name the legislative and planning requirements including registered safe work practices that need to be considered when demolishing existing structures.

What are the Victorian License and registration requirements and Codes of Practice? List eight (8) 

Question 7

In the context of residential class 1 buildings:

  • What type of contract is suitable for construction of the building?
  • Name the code and two (2) standards applicable to the structural integrity of the building.
  • List two (2) workplace safety requirements.

Question 8

Describe the process for pre-construction site inspections and the importance of analysing the data gathered.

Question 9

Referring to AS1684.4 Timber Framing Code, nominate the size of timber in MGP10 for the common stud in a 70/35mm timber frame un-notched, supporting single storey or upper storey external loadbearing walls. There is a sheet roof and a truss span of 9000mm.

Question 10

What is the process for ensuring that windows and external doors are installed correctly?

Question 11

In regards to Masonry Brick Veneer, describe the requirement for the following:

Question 12

Refer to section Part H4 in volume 2 of the NCC and Housing Provisions Part 10.6.2 and describe the installation requirements for mechanical ventilation in relation to sanitary compartments.

Question 13

In regard to the installation of cladding as specified in the building’s plan, describe the builder’s role when supervising and checking compliance.

Question 14

Using the Tables of AS1684.4, nominate the size of a seasoned F17 timber lintel in the lower storey of a two-storey loadbearing wall for an opening width of 1500mm wide where the upper joist span is a maximum of 4800mm, a truss span of 6000mm and a tiled roof over.

Question 15

Refer to Section H, Volume 2 of the NCC and nominate the parts that the following need to comply with:

  • Bushfire
  • Flood Hazards
  • Earthquake
