Construction Management

BC6025 Construction Management is a required course for all Building Construction master students in the Program management and construction management track, and also one of the required electives for students in the facility management track. It is an introductory course on construction management principles for building construction projects. Though called "construction management", this class introduces the life cycle of a building project: Elements of planning and financing; Project delivery methods; Managing construction resource, and facility management, etc.

Residential Design and Construction

The course will move students through the process of designing and building a home working with a local non-profit developer. The process will move from the duediligence of lot selection and determining the best use for a lot within the constraints of an organization working to move a community from rental to home ownership. Once a footprint is determined, a home will be designed to include plans, elevations, structural components, and a sustainability plan based on an EarthCraft Worksheet. Projects will be delivered to the Executive team of the non-profit.
