CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
An incredibly diverse range of commercial, industrial, education, healthcare, transport, leisure and domestic activities take place around the world each day – all enabled by man-made buildings and infrastructure. In this built environment, construction project teams need to profitably produce buildings that meet the needs of the people that use, manage, operate and maintain them. This is impossible to achieve without having a clearly defined and well-managed delivery process in place for a project.
This course presents an integrated project delivery process that starts at project inception and continues into a building’s operational life. A journey will then be taken through the diﬀerent project stages to provide guidance and tools that participants can take back to their workplaces to implement and help improve the management of their projects.
