Management of Large Scale Construction Projects

The course is designed to allow students to develop an understanding of the construction “Project lifecycle” process from the initial conception phase of a project through the completion of construction.  Emphasis is placed upon the construction and management aspects of the lifecycle.

1.     Enumerating the total lifecycle project process from the early conceptual phase through final project review.

2.     Tracing the steps needed to prepare the documentation used to call for bids and enter into a construction contract.

3.     Determining the productivity of relatively simple cyclical field operations and understand the techniques that are used to analyze and improve them.

4.     Preparing a construction cost estimate for a relatively simple operation and understand how this estimate is carried forward into the bidding and cost control processes.

5.     Construct a simple project schedule using appropriate methodologies and understand how this is used as a basis for short term planning and control.

6.     Becoming familiar with technological advancement in the field of construction engineering and management

7. Practicing and improving presentation and communication techniques
