This course examines the development of a construction project from the point when a client identifies a need through to the development of the business case.

The course looks at different approaches to estimating costs and project duration, both in terms of capital and lifetime costs.

You will develop your understanding of the role of the project manager at the project initiation stage, and gain the ability to analyse value propositions for different clients - and to understand how project value can be established.

You'll also learn how to assist construction clients when identifying key project objectives, as well how to assess project viability, affordability and achievability.

By the end of the course you'll be able to:

  • provide guidance and assistance to construction clients
  • select and apply methods of estimating construction costs
  • critically appraise project viability.

A CPD certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.

Successful completion can also contribute 15 credits towards a postgraduate award.
