The global case for sustainability is now beyond doubt, and the government’s lead in promoting sustainable development and sustainable construction demonstrates a strong link with national economic needs. Construction Cost Management has a key role in ensuring sustainability measures become fully incorporated within construction projects by ensuring accurate value propositions are drawn up. Existing construction cost managers are handicapped in providing this service due to their lack of understanding of sustainability and the techniques that can be utilised to test its feasibility. This programme will provide such knowledge and understanding and allow application to be critiqued and fully considered within the context of sustainability and sustainable construction. This programme will equip students with an advanced understanding of the key issues that will enable them to take a broader, sustainability-aware approach to maximising the quality of construction projects while improving competitiveness and sustainability performance.
The programme is likely to be populated by graduates and industry experienced individuals seeking professional qualifications in quantity surveying and construction through the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Programme content The programme comprises the following modules: ■Sustainable project management ■Construction technology and innovation ■Sustainability and the built environment ■Sustainable cost management ■Dissertation
Applicants should hold at least a lower second-class honours degree (or equivalent) in a cognate or semi-cognate subject, or relevant experience. For overseas students, proficiency in English is required (minimum score of 6.5 IELTS.)
