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.

This unit enables learners to develop an understanding of health, safety and welfare legislation and effective health and safety policies. Learners will develop the skills needed to undertake risk assessments.
