CoordinatorMr Dermot Mcgeown
Modern-day, sophisticated property professionals, in their roles as key advisers, developers or investors, are required to lead and / or act in close collaboration with a wide range of other professionals in the analysis and management of property development and property investment projects. Professional property practitioners need to gain a strong understanding of the principles, processes and systems associated with the design and construction of buildings. Construction is, effectively, the largest cost element in a property’s lifecycle, is a source of considerable risk, and its project management is of major importance.
This subject intends to provide a broad introduction to construction concepts for property major students in the Bachelor of Environments degree.
Note that group assignments are carried out on the basis of students forming groups of four (4) students.
