The aim of the course is to enable Built Environment professionals to deliver more efficient and more cost effective projects through improved management of design activities, primarily those concerned with building services. Better design management and greater clarity of each designer's role and responsibilities will lead to more profitable projects and less conflict inside project teams.
This course can be run in-company. We can also customise courses to meet the training needs of your staff. For more information, or for a quote, contact training manager David Bleicher (01344 465 589).
