Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to interpret and apply a broad range of information into the design of timber floor systems. It includes applying detailed information for the preparation of timber flooring system drawings, production documents and installation instructions using custom software for timber systems design.

The unit applies to timber systems designers and fabricators who use their own judgment to deal with predictable and unpredictable problems and decide on solutions to a range of complex problems during the documentation preparation process.

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

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare for design of layout plans

1.1 Read and interpret building plans and specifications to determine and verify applied loads and other design factors

1.2 Interpret and apply relevant building codes, regulations and standards for timber floor systems design

1.3 Confirm workplace quality requirements for the design of timber floor systems

1.4 Consult with stakeholders/clients to clarify design requirements

1.5 Identify and resolve design, production and/or installation issues outside software limitations, and seek appropriate advice

1.6 Check custom computer software for currency

2. Design and review design options

2.1 Design and draft a timber floor system layout plan

2.2 Review design to confirm it meets client requirements and complies with appropriate building regulations, codes and standards

2.3 Review layout to confirm it optimises efficiency of material use and production procedures

2.4 Amend design options if necessary

3. Design production and installation documentation

3.1 Confirm dimensions, span measurements and timber floor sections from building plans and specifications

3.2 Input applied spans, loads and data into software and create a flooring system layout

3.3 Prepare and produce production and client installation documentation according to workplace quality requirements

3.4 Certify timber floor design complies with relevant building regulations, codes and practices, according to regulatory and workplace requirements

3.5 Store drawings and documentation according to workplace procedures
