Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Release 11.0.

Supersedes and is not equivalent to:

  • CPPBDN5001A Research construction materials and methods for small-scale residential building design projects.
  • CPPBDN5002A Research construction materials and methods for small-scale non-residential building design projects.

Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to evaluate traditional, contemporary and emerging construction materials and methods for the design of Class 2-9 buildings to a maximum floor area of 2000m2, except construction Type A buildings. It includes researching the application, performance and interaction of available construction materials and methods.

Building classifications and construction types are set out in the National Construction Code (NCC).

This unit is suitable for drafters and building designers who apply technical and theoretical knowledge and skills to building design work tasks.

This unit forms part of the licensing requirements for people engaged in building design in some states and territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
