What is Construction and Project Management? Essentially this is the management of a public or private sector construction business/organisation and the procurement and execution of their capital projects. Construction industry organisations responsible for design, building and maintenance are seeking increasingly highly qualified employees who can respond to exacting client expectations.
The dynamic nature of the industry is changing rapidly in terms of Government guidelines, regulations and the need to introduce innovation and value for money. The demand for high levels of project performance is pervasive.
