This unit develops the skills needed to design simple electrical and
lighting installations in compliance with relevant legislation and
standards. Learners will explore general and emergency lighting
installations, the distribution of electrical power, the legislation
that underpins the design of electrical installations, the specification
of fire protection systems, and the use of motors and control
installations in mechanical plant. Learners will have the opportunity to
design lighting installations, select cable sizes and types, specify
methods of electrical distribution, specify overcurrent protection
devices, produce fire detection design solutions and installation
requirements for building services control panels. The focus of this
unit is on the design and installation of mechanical building services
installations in industrial, public and commercial buildings.

This unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop skills in using analytical methods and statistics to solve construction and engineering problems.
This unit provides learners with an understanding of analytical
techniques and the mathematical skills needed to solve construction and
engineering problems. This unit has been designed to enable learners to
use mathematical processes to solve construction, civil engineering and
building services engineering problems. It is also intended to provide a
basis for further study of the analytical methods and engineering
mathematics needed for learners working in civil engineering and
building services engineering disciplines.
