Construction Management for Developers and Owners On-demand Course

Construction Management (CM) for Owners and Developers is an introductory course designed exclusively for the real estate professional with little or no prior CM knowledge. The course provides a practical understanding of the planning, design and construction processes from project initiation to closeout. The emphasis is placed on best practices and applied processes within the limitations of budgets, schedules and available resources in an environment of both known and unknown risks. Fundamentals of the construction process, the documents involved for each construction phase and the level of control and leadership required of the various stakeholders are also addressed. Other topics that will be explored include: project management, delivery methods, contracts, scheduling, construction documents, quality and time management, safety, cost management and commissioning. Class exercises and case studies are used to help students strengthen their applied skills and to increase their value to the development team.
