Where do I start?
AT THE BEGINNING!
USE THE MODEL
To visualise the stages
To guide your understanding of the processes
As a framework for answering questions
As the basis for your revision
What do I need to know?
Seasoning is the controlled drying down to a
moisture content level consistent with the end use
of the timber
Air drying - naturally & slowly in special sheds
Kiln drying quickly in conditions of controlled
heat air flow and moisture
Timber - A versatile construction material
Light & strong
Used in roof construction trussed rafters
Prefabrication factory made panels timber frame
Functional requirements and aesthetic appeal
Timber - A versat
The static tensile strength of metals.
In this experiment, we are looking to determine the strength and ductility of three
metal samples, being Aluminium, Brass and Steel.
We hope to find which of the properties, % elongation or % reduction
The Utilisation Phase
Active Property Management
service charge accounting
From perspective of landlord
Managing the project
Why is management required?
Either client or an appointed project
Manager is required to manage the project
Because Property Development is
Extremely capital intensive act
Role of the QS
Prior to construction work
By the end of this session you will have a
basic understanding of the QSs role at the
following key stages
The Development Process
Cost feasibility & Control
By the end of this session you will have have a basic
The design process
The persons and procedures involved
QS - roles and historical development
Relationship to Archit
Project Appraisal and Development

No! If 350 people whisper very noisy!
You will not hear / understand!
SO No TALKING!
Dont be late! If so enter Quietly!

This experiment examined the thermal conductivity of the metal, Copper.
The experiment was carried out twice, with the mass flow rate of water being
increased for the second trial and the thermal conductivity was determined for
Hazardous Materials - Asbestos
Three types of fibre
Fibrous inorganic material
Non-combustible - withstands high temperature
durable with good chemical resistance
Crocidolite - blue asbestos
Chrysotile - white asbestos

Manufacture of Cement
Raw materials are converted by heat to cement in rotating kiln
Wet process clay & chalk mixed into a slurry
Dry process limestone & shale carried by stream of dry air
Material undergoes changes - moves down the kiln & gets hot
Bricks & Brickwork
Clay Bricks - European Standards
BS 3921 becomes BS EN 7711
BS 3921 will co-exist alongside BS EN 7711 until early 2005
Classifications will change but products will remain the
CE marking will ultimately denote conformity
