There is an emphasis on emerging and innovative technologies and techniques such as complex building measurement with a range of information management tools. Strong links are developed with the construction industry through guest lectures and case studies of projects presented by industry professionals. Related aspects of professional practice are explored. Estimating from the contractor’s perspective is introduced and fundamental principles are explained and applied.
