MSFFL2022: Install resilient tiles using standard installation procedures


Your trainer may ask you to complete this assignment as one of the assessment requirements for this unit. For more information about the assessment process and advice on what to do if you need help with your reading and writing, go to Assessment requirements.

Your trainer will give you a room to measure up for a resilient tile installation. You will also be given a specific tile size to work with. Your task is to produce the following two drawings.

  1. Basic proportional sketch of the room, showing all measurements required to calculate and set out the working lines for the tiled floor.

  2. Second sketch showing the following set-out details:

    • chalk lines required to find the centre point of the room

    • additional chalk lines required to move the starting point away from the centre point (if needed)

    • finished size of the cut border tiles against all four walls

    • lengths along the working lines between the walls and the starting point.

The sketches do not need to be drawn perfectly to scale. However, they should be well set out with straight lines and information that's clearly marked and easy to read. You will probably need to produce a rough version first and then re-draw it when you have worked out the details.

If you would like more advice on how to produce a proportional sketch, go to Section 2 ('Floor covering plans') of the unit: Planning and costing.

Note that there is no template for this assignment. You will need to use your own paper.
