Modules

This module, based on problem-solving scenarios, enables you to develop a strategic approach to the implementation of complex real estate development projects. It provides you with an analytical review of the roles, responsibilities and methods for decision making of a multidisciplinary team, from client's identification of need, through project feasibility, design and construction, to operation and maintenance of a built facility. You will examine the differing objectives of generic procurement types, the identification and critical analysis of planning and development issues, and the impact of legal and regulatory frameworks to environmental and occupational health conditions, contractual matters and dispute avoidance.
