Building Construction and Business and Management

10 BUILDING, CONSTRUCTION, AND BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT students will travel to Singapore to explore technological innovations, sustainable building processes, techniques and materials that are used overseas.


This field-trip is open to Building, Construction, Business and Management students at Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma levels, which allows students to explore technological innovations, sustainable building processes, techniques and materials that are used overseas. Modular (DfMA) or prefabricated pre-finished volumetric construction (PPVC) involves assembling building components including whole rooms, in factories and craning them into position on-site. This has time efficiencies, improves safety, and provides more predictable quality. Modular construction has been adopted at CDL's Green Gallery at Singapore Botanic Gardens, for student hostel (Nanyang Technological University), and at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel. This is an ongoing future growth area that is both a CIT Strategic area of focus and an ACT government priority area. Providing students' access to experts who are using these new methods and materials has potential to advance Canberra's workforce and grow the region's economy through potential for future transnational business opportunities. For Building and Construction students, this partially achieves assessment requirements for CPCCBC4004A Identify and produce estimated costs for building and construction projects, COCCBC5001B Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for medium rise building projects, CPCCBC5003A Supervise the planning of on-site medium rise building or construction work, CPCCBC5010B Manage construction work and for business management students It partially achieves assessment requirements for: BSBSUS501 Develop workplace policy and procedures for sustainability.
