Learning Outcomes
Develop an understanding of and apply building envelope material selection and design for small buildings as it applies to wall claddings and openings
Develop an understanding of and apply building envelope material selection and design for small buildings as it applies to roof claddings
Develop an understanding of interior linings, joinery and fitments as they apply to small buildings

Content
May include, but not limited to, an appropriate selection from the following topics:

Building envelope: selection and design - wall cladding and openings is in accordance with characteristics of structure. Design principles - typical cladding jointing system. Provision for services, materials and finishes. Construction process - site constraints, range of materials, time and cost implications.

Building envelope: selection and design - roof cladding and openings is in accordance with characteristics of structure. Design principles - typical cladding jointing system. Provision for services, materials and finishes. Construction process - site constraints, range of materials, time and cost implications.

Interior linings, joinery and fitments: selection meets building characteristics and regulatory requirements. Provision for services, materials and finishes. Construction process - site constraints, materials, time and cost implications.

Teaching and Learning Strategy
Learning activities for topics may typically include practical/workshop, case studies, lectures, tutorials, field trips, group work, visiting specialists, computer simulations, web technologies, projects and self-directed learning.
Assessment Criteria
A portfolio is a compilation of evidence presented by the student in ways that demonstrate their acquired knowledge, competencies and capabilities. The contents of students' portfolios may include evidence of achievement from assignments, projects, tests, formative assessments, and peer assessments, self and group assessments.
