This subject examines construction technology for multi-storey commercial buildings. It commences with an overview of the main methods/systems of high rise construction and materials handling and then examines the typical elements in high rise construction such as concrete framed structures, pre-stressed concrete construction, pre-fabricated construction (such as precast concrete), slip-form and jump-form construction and curtain walling. This is then extended to the internal fitout of high rise buildings. The subject explores the main structural principles and building services technology (hydraulics, electrical, mechanical, security, communication, fire protection and vertical transportation systems) that construction managers should be familiar with for this type of construction. The main building regulations and codes relevant to high rise construction are identified and addressed in detail and students explore issues and difficulties with ensuring compliance.
