CPCCBC4011B: Assessment 5
What you have to do
To complete this assignment you will need to find a reinforced concrete or reinforced
concrete/masonry framed building of medium rise either under construction or completed,
and present an information report covering the items detailed below.
This report will require planning and time to gather the relevant information and present it to
an industry standard, a standard you would present to a client that would have your building
organisation viewed in a professional light.
Obviously if you follow a building from start to finish this assessment will take some time to
complete, so it is expected you may supplement your selection of building site with images
accessed from the internet. If you do adopt this option, the images you collect must be
consistent with the building used in the body of your report. For example, don’t include the
detail of a simple strip footing when the building is a large wide span industrial building.
Similarly, don’t include a pad footing when none are required on the project.
You are reminded of the WorkCover Authority requirement to have completed an approved
National OHS Construction Induction Training course including the unit of competency
CPCCOHS1001A – Work safely in the construction industry, generally referred to as the
“white card” before entering a building or construction site. This does not apply to complete
