- Two important functions of a building are the provision of shelter and the creation of a comfortable space in which to live or work. To achieve this, it is necessary to know and understand the materials used to construct the building, the basic concepts that underpin the structural integrity of the building, and the design of the internal spaces that comprise the building.
- The occupants of a building require a comfortable internal environment, and there are several key factors that contribute to this. There are generally accepted ranges for these factors, and an understanding of what is acceptable to a variety of different end-users, undertaking a variety of tasks and activities is an essential requirement of good design.
- The forces that act on buildings, the stresses generated by these forces, and the effects of these stresses on the materials used to construct the building are also explored.
- Materials may be used for their structural properties, or for their insulating properties; others conduct heat and/or electricity.
- Learners will have the opportunity to investigate some of the typical materials used in their specific vocational pathway, including the identification of the most important materials, a basic understanding of how these are extracted, harvested or manufactured, their key properties and uses, the mechanisms that cause them to deteriorate and the techniques used to prevent such deterioration
