It teaches you to how formally measure to BQ items for residential and small commercial building works in accordance with the Australian Standard Method of Measurement in the context of the tendering/procurement process. The unit also provides a basic appreciation of virtual building graphical models as they relate to integrated practice concepts used in industry, by way of the graphical representation and spatial relationships of digital building models, and an introduction to cost management/building area measurement. The unit is an integral part of the Quantity Surveying-Cost Engineering degree, in linking with foundation units in construction technology and preparing you for further advanced units in building and infrastructure measurement and construction estimating.
