A course dealing with the business phase of a construction project, from working drawings and specifications to final completion of the structure. Both the architect’s or engineer’s role and contractor’s role in coordinating project activities are discussed. Also covered are cost control (estimating) and contractual arrangements, including recent innovations of the industry. The impacts of green, sustainability, and energy conservation issues on construction management will be studied.
