This subject was formerly called Project Scope, Time and Cost.
Organized as an advanced seminar, the aim of this subject is to employ a real-life case project to deliver comprehensive application skills in integrating scope, cost and schedule in the study of the built environment. The use of a single complex project allows the student to understand the subject matter deeply while being cognisant of the practical application. Student’s work will be centred on two major outcomes: 1) Develop industry standard deliverables used to plan and manage construction operations. 2) Reflect on the application of current project management practices, their implementation and the potential to improve existing methodology.
Students will synthesise from lectures, readings, private research, in-class discussions and exercises the critical knowledge to accomplish these outcomes. A significant portion of the work is in group settings which allow students to learn from each other, as well develop a deep appreciation of the dynamics of managing a team.
