Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCBC6014A Apply structural principles to the construction of large, high rise and complex buildings. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to apply structural principles to the construction of large, high-rise and complex buildings.

The design and construction of large buildings requires the input of a range of skilled professionals, including architects and engineers. Building and construction professionals require the ability to identify a range of factors that impact on structural principles within the building design and collaborate with other professionals to reach consensus.

This unit of competency applies to builders, project managers and related construction industry professionals responsible for ensuring the structural integrity of materials and building and construction work so that site safety and quality control measures are maintained during residential and commercial projects.

Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Licensing, regulatory or registration requirements apply to this unit of competency in some jurisdictions. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm these requirements.

Performance Evidence

To demonstrate competency, a candidate must meet the elements and performance criteria of this unit by applying structural design principles to the construction planning for a large, high-rise, or complex building project.

In doing this, the candidate must:

  • coordinate professional input to evaluate structural integrity of large and complex buildings
  • select, position and size all structural members that form fixed or temporary building structures
  • clearly analyse structural impact of design decisions
