SDCM71-313: Integrated Measurement and Professional Practice


This subject develops a mature understanding of the management of the processes associated with the production of contract documents particularly those that are integrated with cost management. There is an emphasis on emerging and innovative technologies and techniques that integrate activities 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 basic principles are explained and applied.
