Abstract

The case study is a "hands-on" simulation of construction site activities. Undertaken by 2nd year undergraduate students in construction courses at the Abertay University and involves building a full-scale reinforced concrete framed structure comprising column bases, columns and connecting suspended beam. Students develop an awareness of the management and craft skills necessary to organise and execute the construction of a complete small structure, accurately, safely and within the target time. Students undertake various management/engineering and craft roles such as: health & safety, teamwork, site management, communications, planning and programming, setting out, materials ordering, measurement of works, costing, formwork construction, steel fixing, scaffolding, concreting, and stripping formwork.
