Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to interpret plans and client specifications and undertake basic architectural drafting to produce working drawings for retail and exhibition design spaces.

Most of this course will be presented face to face within scheduled class time. In most cases, work briefs will be started in class. It is strongly advised that students ensure regular attendance, for demonstration and/or explanation of work requirements and briefs to ensure that students gain the required underpinning knowledge.

National Competency Codes and Titles

National Element Code & Title:

SIRRMER008A Produce working drawings


1.  Produce industry standard page layouts.

2.  Produce dimensional scale orthographic drawings.

3.  Produce scale dimensional drawings of retail objects and interiors.

4.  Produce design solutions in response to client briefs.

Learning Outcomes

This unit requires the team member to demonstrate knowledge of and apply architectural drafting techniques to develop working drawings for store design, floor layouts exhibition designs and proposals in response to client briefs. Frontline visual merchandisers and visual merchandiser supervisors and managers are responsible for this role.

Overview of Assessment

Evidence of the following is essential:
• demonstrated correct selection and application of drawing tools and materials to produce working drawings according to the proposed design or client brief
• production of drawings for a visual merchandising project, including orthographic, isometric and axonometric drawings.

Assessment must ensure access to:
• a real or simulated work environment
• relevant documentation, such as project specification and brief
• drawing equipment and materials.

Progressive work on, and completion of projects may occur in scheduled class time, but also as part of blended/self-directed learning.

Students will also need to log on to Blackboard to access information, work requirements, and content.

The work requirements progressively increase in complexity and depth. Subsequent work builds upon knowledge, skills and competence gained from earlier work. To maximise your chances for successful completion of the course, it is strongly advised that students regularly attend classes and keep up to date. Please bring all your drawing equipment to each class as this will enable you to do the prescribed work and make the best use of your scheduled class time.
The course will be graded by cumulative assessment throughout the whole year. Note: The mere submission of a work requirement does not in itself guarantee a pass or an assessment of “competent”. To gain a pass or to be assessed as competent, the submitted work must, at a minimum, be submitted on time, satisfy all requirements of the brief to the required standard. Students must successfully complete all assessment tasks to pass this course

Students are strongly advised to attend classes regularly and to keep up to date in their work requirements. Regular attendance and participation in class will ensure that students will satisfy the requirements of the following point.

Authenticity and proof of authorship – How does a teacher know it really is your work?
Any work submitted by a student for assessment by their teacher must satisfy proof of authorship or authenticity – i.e. Your teacher must be satisfied that the work submitted by you is actually your work. Your teacher must see you engaged in the production of the work - commence, work on, complete, and/or discuss the particular work requirement with your teacher. Unless these conditions have been met, the teacher can refuse to accept and/or assess any work requirement as “your work”.

Plagiarism – The following definition has been taken from the RMIT University web site
“Plagiarism - the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person as though it is your own. It is a form of cheating and is a very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the University. Plagiarised material can be drawn from, and presented in, written, graphic and visual form, including electronic data, and oral presentations. Plagiarism occurs when the origin of the material used is not appropriately cited.” RMIT Plagiarism policy

Put simply, do not copy/take another person’s work and pass it off as your own.

Working and collaborating with colleagues is a great way to learn together and teachers would enthusiastically encourage this. In this situation, it is important that each student produces his or her own work for submission. Do not, as a group, produce just the one piece of work, make a copy of the same work for each team member and then individually submit it as “your work”.
