This capstone subject brings together and builds on an understanding of construction technologies and introduces project management concepts. Using an integrated project involving a series of studio-based exercises, students will translate a design proposal into operational construction and project management plans. A project based learning environment will be formulated for students to experience construction and project management decision making from concept through to completion. Details of project environment, construction systems, resource constraints, production processes, and management tools and methods will be explored and effective and efficient project plans will be developed.
Students will be expected to work in groups and assignments are to be developed based on real case studies. The overall aim is to develop a complete project management plan for a given project considering all the fundamental aspects of project planning and development. Emphasis will be on the principles of scope identification, work breakdown, time estimation and scheduling, cost breakdown, quality assurance and quality control systems, risk management plan, procurement and contract administration including various managerial controlling and monitoring techniques.
A minimum mark of 50% must be achieved in the examination in order to pass the subject.
