Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to supervise the systems through which materials are typically selected, acquired and stored on site for projects described by the Building Code of Australia (BCA) as low rise building or construction work (low rise’ licensing classification with reference to Class 1 and 10 construction and Class 2 to 9 with a gross floor area not exceeding 2000 square metres, not including Type A or Type B construction).
It ensures the delivery to the site of materials that meet contract specifications and service requirements for low rise projects.

National Competency Codes and Titles

National Element Code & Title:

CPCCBC4006B Select, procure and store construction materials for low rise projects

Elements:

1. Identify and evaluate the properties of building materials.   1.1. Suitability of materials  commonly used in the region for low rise buildings  is identified for a given building system.   1.2. Properties of materials, their quality and the compatibility and non-compatibility of different materials are identified .   1.3. Environmental impacts of different materials are identified.   1.4. Impact of allowable tolerances on the conversion of naturally occurring materials is identified.   1.5. Tolerances for installing and assembling materials are identified and checked in regard to the nature of the work being performed and the requirements of relevant construction industry Australian standards.

2. Ensure suitable building materials are selected for application.   2.1. Materials that are structurally adequate and appropriate for the building system specified in the contract are selected .   2.2. Materials are selected for their safety; required fire resistance rating; suitability to the application, durability, serviceability and cost effectiveness; and compliance with Australian standards.   2.3. Short and long-term degradation of materials are considered in relation to the building's proposed life cycle.   2.4. Alternative materials are evaluated and selected if specified materials are unavailable or unsuitable.   2.5. Selection of materials for use is finalised in accordance with contractual requirements and in consultation with relevant professionals and the client.

3. Supervise the acceptance, safe handling and storage of materials on site.   3.1. Limitations and effects of transportation on materials and components are determined and action is taken in the case of potentially damaging circumstances.   3.2. Materials are handled correctly and safely  on site using appropriate equipment and safe work practices.   3.3. Materials are stored in accordance with manufacturer specifications and in compliance with relevant Australian standards.   3.4. Processes are implemented for inspecting all materials delivered on site for naturally occurring and/or manufactured defects before installation.   3.5. Personnel are aware of actions to be taken in the case of defects caused by incorrect installation, application or placement.   3.6. Timber is preserved and ferrous and non-ferrous metals used in the construction process are protected, using established methods.
