Define the meaning of preambles and discuss the difference in unit rate of bored pile shafts when the unit of bored piles shaft is changed from metre (m) to number (nr).

Electronic Submission of Work
Students should also be aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that work submitted in
electronic format can be opened on a faculty computer and to check that any electronic
submissions have been successfully uploaded. If it cannot be opened it will not be marked.

    shafts when the unit of bored piles shaft is changed from metre (m) to number (nr).
  7. Define the meaning of Preliminaries and discuss the difference in costs of transport
    for the engineer when the item coverage of transport for the Engineer is changed
    from “the item shall include for vehicle licence fee, fuel, cleaning, repairing,
