After successfully completing this course you will be able to:
- critically evaluate project definition, tender and bidding requirements from the client, designer, constructor as well as legal perspectives and the implications for constructors
- define, analyse and critically evaluate and plan projects in terms of time, cost, quality, welfare, safety and environment, including the use of information technology
