From the inception of an idea to the completion of a project, the construction process involves many steps and, in the case of a large project, hundreds of people to reach a successful conclusion.  This course will immerse students in the steps to undertake a successful construction project and the different approaches to construction.

Topics will include assembling a project team, type of contracts, pre-construction activities, evaluating pricing, project cost & schedule control, construction phase activities and project closeout/occupancy.

There will be a field trip to an active commercial construction site during the semester.

The course is designed to teach students how an astute developer evaluates the different approaches to construct a project and how to understand the various risks associated with each approach.

This course is a requirement in the Master of Science in Architecture: Specialization in Real Estate Development.
