No additional requirements
This subject was previously known as Introduction to Building Measurement.
In this subject students will examine the various uses of measurement in the construction industry. The principles and rules of building measurement are applied to the measurement of simple construction works examples using the Australian Standard Method of Measurement of Building Works. Students will be required to demonstrate different methods for recording measurements, including hand-written and computer-based approaches.
Please Note: If it’s your first time studying a Curtin University subject you’ll need to complete their compulsory ‘Academic Integrity Program’.
