Course description

Project Initiation

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.
