Bricklaying LEVEL 1 DIPLOMA (6705)

To contribute to the construction process, a bricklayer must be able to identify correctly and interpret accurately information provided by a range of drawings and written documents. Even a small project may depend on many different sources of information to be completed successfully.

In this chapter, we will consider the drawings and documents that are used to understand the different parts (or elements) of a building. These documents may contain sensitive information, for example, details about a government project or a bank building, and should therefore be stored carefully and kept secure at all times. Even if documentation does not relate to a sensitive project, it should be looked after carefully, since a project cannot be completed without it.

Drawingsare used in construction to communicate a great deal of information, for example:
  • the position and size of a building and its foundation
  • internal features
  • important details about specific parts of the structure
  • the position of doors and windows
  • the appearance of the building from the front, back and sides
  • the shape of the roof.
Drawings can be referred to as contract documents, which means that they are
legally binding. If a bricklayer decides to change details on a drawing without being authorised to do so, there could be serious legal consequences.
