This unit extends the knowledge gained in SRT151 in domestic residential construction, and SRT251 in industrial and commercial construction, to introduce students to the particular issues faced in the construction of multi-storey and high-rise buildings. Students will learn about constructing below ground floors, as well as working and building at height. Site preparation, equipment usage, erection and fabrication techniques, services provision, as well as the material and structural demands on building elements are all covered. Students will learn about the integration of structure, enclosure, and services with building utility, and how various engineering systems, along with approaches to construction, impact these in terms of building speed, cost, quality and construction complexity.
