Construction project management is essentially project management that is applied in the construction industry. The different construction sectors include office/commercial, industrial and processing, hotel and leisure, public and institutional, residential, retail, and mixed-use. Construction project management involves planning a construction project (identifying a suitable location for the construction, and estimating cost and duration of the project), performing project management-related tasks at the construction site and reviewing and analysing the outcome of the construction project once it has been completed.
This learning opportunity is needed for persons with limited experience in the property and construction industry and particularly valuable for participants who often do not come from a traditional property related background. All forms of human endeavour require project management (PM) skills. In the built environment it is impossible to construct and refurbish fixed assets in an orderly fashion without sound project management skills. This skill is often lacking. The short learning programme offers a learning possibility and provides guidance in a highly competitive domain. Project managers in the built environment operate from several platforms: the client/investor; the professional teams; the contractors; their subcontractors; and many public sector agencies all need the services of PMs to obtain desired outcomes. This short learning programme is very popular and attracts national and international participants.
