Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to plan the allocation and use of space consistent with a concept or business plan.

The work space may relate to exhibition space, performance space, office and administration space, a studio or workshop. This unit does not apply to work spaces requiring a specialist designer to respond to complex requirements or spaces for large numbers of people.

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • research and consult in order to determine key requirements and usage of work space
  • assess characteristics and issues that impact on work space
  • develop a design concept that suits available space, addresses work requirements, integrates safety and sustainability considerations, and includes details of fixtures and fittings
  • create a work space plan within required timeframe and budget that meets identified objectives.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explain the context in which the space is to be used, processes for meeting user group requirements, and commercial considerations associated with that context
  • summarise options for planning of space, including advantages and disadvantages of different approaches
  • describe the key features of annotated floor plans, computer drawings and sketches used when developing work space plans
  • outline sustainability considerations relating to the work space, including waste
  • explain work health and safety requirements relating to the use of space within the specific industry context, including requirements associated with specific equipment.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:
