Undergraduate

Description

This is a hybrid subject that examines:

  • construction technology for industrial buildings
  • building quality
  • the dispute resolution process, and
  • the remedial building industry.

The primary elements of industrial buildings, such as warehouses and factories, are examined in detail coupled with a site visit, with a particular focus on site sub-strata conditions, soil contamination and the main structural principles of wide-span buildings and how a building's intended function influences the design and construction techniques.

Students are then exposed to current industry case studies on how building quality affects a construction project manager's day-to-day duties and what happens when minimum building standards are not met, or when building quality is scrutinised during and after the handover process.
