Advanced Integrated Design IV: Extended Construction Management, Project Design and Life Cycle Cost Estimates

2021/2022

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module adds to knowledge, skills and competencies within the architectural design and engineering field corresponding to the completion of the MSc01 and MSc02 level at the Architectural Design-engineering education.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The aim of this course is to provide the student with an extended introduction to project-, design- and construction management, as well as an understanding of relevant professional building industry and building design practice in an international level. This includes training life cycle cost analysis (LCC) and dynamic cost evaluations.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must independently demonstrate knowledge and understanding of theories and methods within project-, design- or construction management.

  • Must have knowledge of ethical-, economical-, legal-, political-, and social interests in the field of construction management.

  • Must have knowledge of current practice in construction management.

  • Must have knowledge of current practice in life cycle cost analysis and dynamic cost evaluations.

Skills

  • Must be able to analyse and assess the cross-disciplinary inclusion of actors/stakeholders involved in the decision-making processes of a building construction project.

  • Must be able to use methods and techniques for preparing life cycle cost analysis and dynamic cost evaluations/calculations for building construction projects.

  • Must be able to apply methods of planning and scheduling of building construction projects.

Must be able to identifying work elements, estimating activity durations, preparing network schedules and schedule updates, analysing planned vs. actual project progress.

Competences

  • Can independently choose, apply and critically reflect on methods and theories for project-, design- or/and construction management within a given budget using specified materials and construction methods.
