Code Subject Pre-requisites Aims and Objectives 1.1MB Measurement (Builders) Nil To introduce the basic skills of measurement. Conditions of contract will generally nominate a set of rules of measurement and so the development of measurement skills devolves on the correct interpretation of these rules as well as with unambiguous and repeatable sets of measurements resulting in quantities of work in place.

Learning Outcomes

· Understand and apply the standard rules for measurement. Standard Method of Measurement (SMM) used in Singapore. · Interpret drawings and recognise items of work in place and categories them into elements.. · Demonstrate the booking of dimensions in a neat and orderly fashion using the Trade-by-Trade Method of taking-off. · Understand the difference between the Trade-by-Trade and Group methods of taking-off. · Prepare a draft Bill of Quantities (BQ) for some of the more basic forms of construction. Assignment and Written Examination Basic Measurement Techniques Substructure - Centre Line Method, Excavations, Foundations - Disposal/Earthwork support, Concrete Foundations, Walls - Brickwork/Blockwork, Projections, Drainage ­ Below Ground, Above Ground, Internal Finishes ­ plasterwork, wall tiles, fitted carpeting, Roof Coverings ­ simple pitches, hips, valleys etc. Lectures: Tutorials: Self Study: Total: Lectures: Tutorials: Self Study: Total: 30 hours 30 hours 70 hours 130 hours 30 hours 10 hours 70 hours 110 hours

Code Subject Pre-requisites Aims and Objectives 1.2 ME Measurement (M&E) Nil · To extend the students' skills in interpretation of rules of measurement by further study of SMM7 and CESMM. · To extend the students' skills in recognising items of work in place by the use of more complex forms of construction, particularly temporary works such as support, inserts, testing and commission.

Learning Outcomes

· Apply and interpret the proper application of rules of measurement to complex structures · Recognise items of work in place whether or not these are displayed formally on architectural or engineering drawings. · Have a working knowledge of the Trade-by-Trade method of taking-off and billing · Understand the processes of the Group Method of takingoff and the subsequent processes which lead to the production of a bill of quantities. · Understand the computerisation of the measurement process.

Code Subject Pre-requisites Aims and Objectives To provide students with a sound understanding of Contracts Law and its reforms which will be required for their everyday work in the profession, and in particular for those entering the field of management, sales and leasing. The aim of the marked coursework assignment is to allow conclusion of simple missives and the understanding of deeds. Learning Outcomes Students will have gained the knowledge and understanding of the principles of Contracts Law which fully meet the course aims. They will also gain the skills to apply common and stature law in the appropriate manner. Contracts Laws are viewed by the profession as being primary and essential subjects for graduates which will be in daily use throughout their careers, whether in private or public practice. A lack of knowledge and understanding would seriously prejudice the financial and legal interests of their clients/employers.
