Modification History

Release 1

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

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPPBDN8003A Scope and initiate large and complex building design projects. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to scope and establish large scale and complex building design projects by consulting with clients and identifying project parameters, vision, budget and required personnel. It includes finalising the contract for the work. Large scale and complex projects involve any building classification and construction type, as defined in the National Construction Code (NCC), including Type A buildings.

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.
