Summary module description:

The module introduces the fundamental priciples of quantification for instructure and civil engineering works based on UK CESMM4 and Malaysia MyCESMM. Also, the module provides a platform for enhanced quantification skills that have been acquired in CE2QCT and CE3CQC to be applied particularly for infrastructure and civil engineering works and how these skills may be carried out with the aid of computer technology.


Aims:

To provide fundamental principles and skills of quantification for infrastructure and civil engineering works based on CESMM4 and MyCESMM as well as to allow for computer-aided quantification.


Assessable learning outcomes:

Understand the fundamental principles of CESMM4 and MyCESMM; Appreciate class structures and preambles of CESMM4 and MyCESMM; Demonstrate general principles of quantification based on CESMM4 and MyCESMM Quantify the different elements of infrastructure and civil engineering works based on CESMM4 and MyCESMM Produce Bills of Quantities based on the measured elements of infrastructure and civil engineering works


Additional outcomes:

Students should be able to work independently or within a team and present the outcome of their work to course staff and other members of the class.


Outline content:

Fundamental principles of CESMM4 and CESMM, class structures and preambles General principles of quantification of infrastructure and civil engineering works Quantification of: - Earthworks - Piling Works - Pipeworks - Drainage Work - Roads and Pavings - Tunnel Work - Rail Tracks Production of Bills of Quantities.


Global context:

In order to localised the module content to suit the local practice in Malaysia, MyCESMM will also be used as the main reference for the module where students will need to know its fundamental, usages as well as its application to the quantification for infrastructure and civil engineering works.


Brief description of teaching and learning methods:

Lecturers will be delivered on fundamental principles, introductory topics as well some general techniques on quantification. Details techniques including the usages of CESMM4 and MyCESMM will be covered by supervised time in studio where students will be provided with project tasks depending on the weekly topic to enable them to apply the knowledge into practice. After completion, model answers will be provided for each project tasks which will then be discussed for the purpose of provision of feedback.

Penalties for late submission:
The Module Convenor will apply the following penalties for work submitted late, in accordance with the University policy.

  • where the piece of work is submitted up to one calendar week after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): 10% of the total marks available for the piece of work will be deducted from the mark for each working day (or part thereof) following the deadline up to a total of five working days;
  • where the piece of work is submitted more than five working days after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): a mark of zero will be recorded.

  • The University policy statement on penalties for late submission can be found at: http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/FILES/qualitysupport/penaltiesforlatesubmission.pdf
    You are strongly advised to ensure that coursework is submitted by the relevant deadline. You should note that it is advisable to submit work in an unfinished state rather than to fail to submit any work.

    Length of examination:

    Requirements for a pass:

    A mark of 40% overall


    Reassessment arrangements:

    Students are required to contact the School to confirm reassessment arrangements.
