To complete this assessment you will need to find a wide span, steel portal framed building, either under construction or completed, and present an information report covering the items detailed below.
This report will require planning and time to gather the relevant information and present it to an industry standard, a standard you would present to a client that would have your building organisation viewed in a professional light.
Obviously if you follow a building from start to finish this assessment will take some time to complete, so it is expected you may supplement your selection of building site with images accessed from the internet. If you do adopt this option, the images you collect must be consistent with the building used in the body of your report. For example, don’t include the detail of a simple strip footing when the building is a large wide span industrial building. Similarly, don’t include a pad footing when none are required on the project.
You are reminded of the WorkCover Authority requirement to have completed an approved National OHS Construction Induction Training course including the unit of competency CPCCOHS1001A – Work safely in the construction industry, generally referred to as the “white card” before entering a building or construction site. This does not apply to completed buildings.
The structure of your report is detailed below. Your report should include graphics, (photos or sketches), wherever possible and include appropriate comment to explain the construction detail and view.
· Investigate and describe the soil type/foundation typical of the area
· Detail 2 footing systems that could be used in these conditions and you believe would be most appropriate for the building and foundation. Describe the footing systems using text and simple sketches.
· Provide photographs or sketches of the detail at the column bases. Describe the arrangement between column, footing and floor.
· Present photographs and descriptions of the structural framework
· Using simple sketches, describe how the frame supports the load of the building. How is the wind load being resisted? Detail the types of connections utilised between the structural members eg rafter and column, and explain how they contribute to the stability of the frame
· Describe with the aid of photographs or sketches the floor system that has been used.
· Detail the joints used in the flooring system. Explain the purpose of each type of joint.
· Explain how the floor is finished. If the finish is not a proprietary product, nominate one which would be appropriate for this building. Describe its installation/application and purpose.
· Provide photographs of the wall framing, connection details, cladding and bracing elements.
· Outline the sequence of tasks that details the process of erection of the structural wall system and cladding. Note these may be one and the same.
· Explain, by the use of sketches, how the bracing elements perform their task of resisting wind loads in two perpendicular directions; eg. On the front or back of the building and on the sides of the building.
· Investigate how the building/building area controls stormwater. Describe the overall concept and report on guttering, downpipes, pipes, tanks, ‘ponding’ areas and detention/retention tanks.
· Detail the services supplied to the building. Show using photographs the connections for, power, water, gas, fire communications etc.
· Detail the active and passive fire detection and prevention systems in use. Describe their installation and their functions.
· Identify the structural roof system. Show photographs and describe the components.
· Indicate the structural member on a roof plan sketch. Clearly identify the roof bracing elements.
· Indicate the type of roof cladding used. Research and provide information on the type of cladding including span tables, connection and support details.
· Sketch the gutter detail for the building and include any relevant/necessary flashings to prevent the entry of water into the building.
