Delivery Mode This unit of competency is to be delivered via TAFE Digital, TAFE NSW online
platform.
The intention of this program is to be undertaken by the student via an
online mode, through distance learning, and therefore all assessment tasks
are reflective of this process.
Assessment
overview
The objective of this assessment is to assess your knowledge as would be
required to establish the estimated costs associated with the acquisition of
materials and labour on building and construction sites, together with the
application of relevant overhead costs and margins. Knowledge of physical
resource and supplier identification, assessment of the availability of and
requirements for skilled labour and application of appropriate codes,
regulations and approvals gaining processes is essential.

Part 1: Practical Tasks
Background
To support the role of the builder in being able to produce construction industry documentation,
students have access to a professional intranet that provides a simulated building company, RB
Holdings. RB Holdings functions as a simulated workplace environment where project-based
assessments can be undertaken using industry standard documentation, plans, activities,
responsibilities and procedures. The RB Holdings business structure allows simulation of work
environments such as, but not limited to, design offices, site offices and construction sites. RB
Holdings provides students with relevant documentation that is to industry standard that allows
students to experience a professional simulation of a construction office environment. RB Holdings is
a simulated organisation that has been created purely for educational purposes. RB Holdings
materials are accessed via a secure website that is copyright of © TAFE NSW.
Scenario
RB Holdings has an organisational policy that requires you, as one of its staff members, to produce
material and labour estimates no later than 5 working days from receiving the request from your
manager. The information calculated must be to the quality standards required by RB Holdings, that
is, accurate quantity take-off and calculations in accordance with the “Standard Method of
Measurements”. Calculations, costings and communications must be created in accordance with
standard RB Holdings policies and procedures.
Assessor Feedback for Part 1
Teacher feedback for each task in Part 1: Practical Tasks will be found on each appropriate tab in the
Company Costing Spreadsheet_AE_V4004-619.xlsx when your assessment is returned to you.

Part 2: Role play – Conduct a meeting
Conduct a consultation with a third-party TAFE Teacher who will play the role of the client, Mr or Mrs
Brown. You are to play the part of the builder who will be supervising the construction of the new
house for Mr & Mrs Brown. Allow 15-20 minutes to prepare for the consultation. The recording
should take no longer than 10 minutes.
The meeting is to take place in a simulated building company’s office, and the video is to initially
confirm the components that substantiate this as an office environment (e.g. desk and phone, job
records in files on a shelf or a filing cabinet, computer with screen, etc.)
Demonstrate effective communication skills that are clear and direct, use questioning to confirm
requirements and share information using concepts and language applicable to the audience.
Considerations for cultural differences must be demonstrated (e.g. use of appropriate vocabulary). In
addition, attention must be given to non-verbal communication (including body language, facial
expression, eye contact and gestures).
The assessor will provide specific information to help you set up the role play and will observe and
record the role play by using Adobe Connect, Skype or other suitable technology.
Note: Your assessor will use the role play video recording as the evidence and assess your
performance.
Task 1: Conduct a meeting
You have organised an informal meeting with your client, Mr or Mrs Brown, prior to signing the
contract, to explain the operation of parts of the contract and to address unknown costs to the
client.
The purpose of the meeting is to explain the complexities of ‘hidden costs’ to the client. The client is
inexperienced with building projects and contract negotiations. They have a limited understanding of
‘hidden costs’ but have heard that they often occur.
The meeting must explain to the client the reasons why some of these costs (provisional sums, prime
cost items and variations) apply to the contract and that the final contract price may change because
of these items.
When you are ready to undertake the role play, contact your assessor to book a time. A TAFE
Teacher will play the role of the client, while the assessor will observe you perform the role play.
Your assessor will provide specific information to help you set up the role play and will observe and
record the role play by using Adobe Connect, Skype or other suitable technology.
Note: Your assessor will use the role play video recording as the evidence and assess your
performance in it.
