Time allowed
There are no time constraints to this assignment however, it is estimated that the work involved should take approximately 20 hours.
Task instructions
Candidates are required to successfully complete the following task consisting of 10 questions to achieve this assignment:
Candidates are permitted any relevant reference material such as IET On-site Guide, BS 7671 and internet access.
Read all information relating to the task carefully before attempting any questions. For this task you will require a copy of drawings 5357-A1 to A6. For the purpose of scaling, these should be provided in A3 format. You may, when marking up drawings, use A4 format if desired.
All questions must be completed for this project. You may use the space provided for your answers or you may produce them electronically on separate named sheets. Read each question carefully before attempting.
Drawings 5357-A1 to A6 show the proposed new hotel extension and new pool/café block. Information relating to building design and construction are detailed below. You may however make reasonable assumptions throughout your design giving reasons.

Building Specification
Building Construction
Hotel Extension:
ξ The building is constructed on a concrete raft with 50 mm screed to the ground floor and chipboard on 100 mm wooded joists for the first floor.
ξ The walls are thermolite blocks with uPVC cladding, cavity and inner leaf blockwork with plaster finish. Inner wall partitions are blockwork with plaster finish.
ξ The roof is tiled on a wooden roof truss with waterproof membrane.
ξ Internal ceilings are plasterboard on the underside of wood joists.
Pool/Café block:
ξ The building is constructed on a re-enforced concrete base forming the swimming pool and floor with tiled finish throughout the basement areas.
ξ The first floor is pre-cast concrete on steel supports with 50 mm screed and non-slip vinyl finish. ξ The basement walls are re-enforced concrete with internal uPVC cladding.
ξ The basement ceiling utilises the underside of the concrete floor above.
ξ The café area walls are wood framed with uPVC outer cladding, thermal insulation and plasterboard inner lining.
ξ The tiled roof is supported on exposed decorative wooden trusses with internal plasterboard infills on the underside forming an open ’A’ roof space with the exception of the building section above the kitchen end of the building which has plasterboard ceilings 2.4 m above ffl forming an enclosed roof space above. ξ Inner walls are plasterboard partitions having aluminium frame.
Electrical Installation:
The existing hotel building forms part of a 400 V three-phase TN-C-S system. It has been assessed that there is sufficient capacity for the new works and a new CCU will be installed to supply the new distribution circuits. Ze and PFC have been measured and recorded as 0.09 Ω and 5 kA respectively.
It has been assessed that following installation of the new three-phase distribution circuit to the pool/café block, Zdb and PFC for the new distribution board within the block will be 0.11 Ω and 3.7 kA respectively.
Fire alarm system
This is to be installed by specialist contractors but a 13 A un-switched fused connection unit will be required in the pool/café block to supply a repeater panel.
Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning
This is to be installed by specialist contractors and any supply details are contained in the design specification. Any further considerations can be ignored.

Note: this question paper and associated drawings must be submitted for marking
1 As part of the electrical contract, the client is considering an electric vehicle charging unit in the car park supplied from the existing TN-C-S supply in the main hotel building. Following a site survey it has been decided to install the EV Charging Equipment as part of a TT earthing arrangement.
Draw a fully labelled circuit diagram illustrating the three-phase 400 V supply system and earthing arrangement from the sub-station transformer through to the charging unit. The diagram should show the total earth fault loop path for the charging unit.
Your diagram does not need to show the complete detail of distribution boards, metering or consumer control equipment although the diagram should, as a minimum, indicate a connection point for each item of equipment.
