  • Performance Criteria 3.6 updated.
  • Changes to Performance Evidence.

Release 2

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.1.

Knowledge Evidence formatted for clarity.

Release 1

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

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCBL3011A Construct curved walls. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to construct masonry curved walls. It includes using geometry to calculate and set out curves.

This unit applies to bricklayers and blocklayers working on new and existing structures. It is suitable for people operating with some autonomy. A person working at this level would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing tasks assigned to them without needing close supervision.

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 CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Pre-requisite Unit

CPCCWHS2001 Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

Performance Evidence

To demonstrate competency in this unit, a candidate must meet the performance criteria of this unit by setting out and laying two curved masonry walls to height of 600 mm.

In doing this, the candidate must:

  • construct one serpentine masonry wall to a minimum length of 4.0 m using the plotted points or template method and finished with appropriate capping
  • construct one curved masonry wall with a minimum rise of 290 mm and radius of 2.4 m using the trammel technique
  • comply with brickwork tolerances stated in the current Australian Standards.

Knowledge Evidence

To be competent in this unit, a person must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • characteristics, applications and limitations of materials used for curved wall construction
  • processes and techniques for:
  • calculating and setting out various size curves
  • curved wall construction
  • using measurements and formulas to calculate quantities
  • facets generated by curved walls
  • aspects and factors relating to curved walls
  • construction terminology relating to curved wall construction
  • wall types, movement of joints and bonding patterns
  • functional and operational features of plant, equipment, hand and power tools
  • workplace safety:
