This course is aimed at industry professionals who manage small to medium-sized projects, such as asset managers, facilities and operations managers, client-side project managers and building owners.

It covers the essential stages of a typical project from establishment, engagement, determining the project brief/client scope through to the necessary processes to achieve practical completion. The course will touch on managing the timeline and program, and procurement options.

Its primary focus is on the essential communication processes throughout the project (requests for information, minuting site meetings, monitoring variations and the essential steps for practical completion and defects liability), while monitoring construction quality and occupational health and safety during the works.
