We have just reviewed each of the additional resources we provide free of charge to our owner builder students and have realised it is 7 years since some of them have been revised.
As a result of this discovery and our commitment to making the owner builder course the best it can be, we are going to revise and update each of the resources over the coming months.
The resources as they currently stand are still extremely valuable to our owner builder course students and may be accessed at:
Of particular use are the Project Management Systems and the Safety Management System. They are both .exe files and unfortunately do not work on mac based systems. We will fix this in the updated versions.
For our owner builder students who are PC users, they are accessed by downloading the .exe file and saving to your computer. You will need the following serial numbers to access the content:
HIH001 for the Project Management System and
0001 for the Safety Management System
In addition to theses resources, there are several tutorials which are also .exe files. They take the owner builder student through how to use the various forms in the Project Management Systems.
In updating these resources, we will also include access to sample specifications typically used for an owner builder domestic construction project and online tutorial videos on completing a Safe Work Method Statements and how to implement an effective Safety Management System for your owner builder project.
Of course you can email our staff with any of your questions, and we will try to develop an answer that will become available as a resource for all of our owner builder course students.
Take care out there, keep your owner builder site safe, and
