Students will also learn how to develop environmentally sustainable project management methods including innovative practices and reference to safe and healthy systems.

Sustainability in the Built Environment

On successful completion of this module, students will understand the concepts of sustainable development and how it relates to the built environment. Students will learn how to articulate the key drivers and trends affecting the built environment and how these relate to the concepts of sustainable development. Students will also understand different measures or features in the built environments that contribute to their sustainability at different spatial scales. Legislation and targets, accreditation  schemes and environmental management systems will be learned to critique the mechanisms through which sustainable built environments are delivered.

Managerial Finance for the Built Environment

Students will be able to examine how organizations compile financial records and compute financial statements; and analyze the legislation, accounting concepts and principles that underpin financial statements. Students will learn how to evaluate and interpret the contents of financial reports with the use of recognized tools to assess a company’s performance and financial position. This module also allows students to learn about assets and liabilities control, profitability control and how organizations make tactical decisions. Students will also learn about the principles of costing, overheads, breakeven analysis and pricing theories.

Construction Contract Law

On successful completion of this module students will be able to critically evaluate current practice and the legal framework within which construction contracts are used. Students will learn how to analyze disputes and problems in building contracts and select appropriate solutions, recognizing the importance of communication, negotiation and conflict management.
