Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

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

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPPBDN8002A Research compliance requirements for complex building design projects. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to advise on compliance requirements that apply to construction Type A, as defined in the National Construction Code (NCC) building design projects in a range of locations. It includes researching and applying local, state/territory and federal legislation, codes and standards to planning, the environment and zoning, and interpreting these requirements in relation to client preferences and prospective design proposals.

This unit is suitable for experienced building designers who apply broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge and highly specialised skills to manage building design projects with autonomy and judgement and to deal with sometimes complex and unpredictable contingencies.

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.
