[CE 1.1]

This career episode relates to project titled “Mile End Development’’. The project was assigned to me as a part of my Civil Engineering Draftsperson course at TAFESA.

TAFESA was established in the year 1935 offering more than 80 areas of industry and activity from last 47 years.

A residential project in Adelaide involved land division, a new dwelling and modifications to the existing allotment. Referring to the Proposed Development Plan, the new allotment, will have a dwelling built on land that was previously the garden and rear yard of the existing allotment. The Proposed Dwelling including Garage and the Store in the existing allotment required the design of new footings. The Proposed Carport in the existing allotment required the design of structural framing and pad footings. Due consideration was to be given to the disposal of the additional stormwater runoff resulting from the development.

[CE 1.3]

Objective -

  1. Task A

    Examine the proposed development plan, the site drainage plan. I was needed to determine -

    • The peak stormwater runoff to the council drains from proposed new allotment B assuming that predevelopment, all stormwater was contained within the allotment.
    • The ARI (AEP) set by the council and any other regulatory requirements.
    • A pipe layout including RL’s to convey the stormwater and details for pipe and drain connections.
    • The pipe diameters required by council.
    • Standard pipe and drain connections required by council.
  2. Task B

    A construction report along with soil report was provided to me. I needed to -

    • Determine the magnitude of active movement (soil heave)
    • Determine the site classification
    • Design the footings for the proposed dwelling including garage
    • Design footing plans & cross sections complying with regulatory standards
  3. Task C

    Assuming the same soil condition for both allotments I needed to -

    • Design the footings for the proposed store
    • Draw footing plans & cross sections complying with regulatory standards
  4. Task D

    I also needed to -

    • Determine the design wind speed & wind actions for the carport
    • Design the carport using SHS columns, cold-formed purlins, custom orb roof sheeting & threaded rod bracing
    • Design plans, sections & connections details
    • Design the pad footings assuming a 125 mm thick concrete slab has been laid on the top

My Roles & Responsibilities -

  • Project planning
  • Risk planning, WHS issues
  • Organizing team meeting & keeping track of the project proceedings
  • Involving on classification of the site e.g. soil type
  • Designing the carport of the existing building
  • Drawing the footing of the dwelling
  • Presentations & Documentations

CE [1.6]

The management of time in this project was a critical aspect and a luxury we can’t afford. I worked in synchronization with the team mates and our project supervisor through out the project. I also allocated roles & responsibilities to other team members. I resolved all the snags and glitches amid the team members during project completion. I reported the project proceeding to the supervisor on weekly basis and also compiled the final report for prior submission.

CE [1.7]

I designed the carport using SHS columns, cold-formed purlins, roof sheeting and threaded rod bracing. I classified site and made drawings. I performed site classification by determining active soil movement (soil heave). I also determined the wind speed and wind actions for the proposed dwelling.

I used AutoCAD, Revit Architectural and Revit Structural for the designing of the house.

During pipe line design for storm water drainage I was really stuck at numerous points. I worked with my supervisor and also researched over the internet resources to resolve the issue. I rechecked the established pipe network within the design software and found that I was not using the right application criterion. I selected the right tools and finished a proper and authentic design.

Soil Movement Calculations

I did soil movement calculations as following -

CE [1.8]

I introduced Gantt chart to track our work in a team which helped us a lot because it was developed clearly and what has all the details about every week job.

I divided the jobs amid the team and this helped us in balancing the work load and finishing the project well within stipulated timeframe. The lecturers and supervisor guided us in numerous occasions. I also took help from internet resources to carry out respective project work.

Since there were many areas where works were going on simultaneously every day I was interacting with my team mates to discuss regarding the targets to be achieved, safety procedures to be followed, scope of the work, regarding the allocation of the resources. Once in a week, we had a meeting with project supervisor who supervised us right way. We used to discuss about upcoming weeks work, resource allocation and what are the things were behind from us.

CE [1.9]

Engineering Codes/Standards followed -

  • NZ/AUS 1170- design actions
  • NZ/AUS 2070- residential slabs and footings

CE [1.10]
