BSc (Hons) Construction Management

Management of Building Production

(UEMC2433)

Mr. Chia Fah Choy BAppSc (Hons), MSc.


Synopsis

Synopsis

This unit enables the students to explore the intricacies and complexities in managing Building Projects. It facilitates the acquisition of a rounded as well as detailed knowledge of technology, design and management of production process, emphasizing on skills associated from the initiation to the successful completion of buildings.


Objectives

Objectives

  • To provide an understanding of the production management skills associated with the initiation, commencement and successful completion of buildings and the technology required.


Learning outcome

Learning Outcome

On completion of the unit, the student shall be able to:

  • Identify the stakeholders involved in the project and the line of communication and its contractual link between the various parties.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the methods applicable in the monitoring of the progress, document required for valuation of time and cost of the project.

  • Determine the location of the temporary buildings, vertical and horizontal transport system, fabrication and storage yards to minimize double handling and maintaining control and site safety.

  • Understand the requirements of safe and effective production system and the appreciation of ISO guidelines in maintaining the quality management at project site.

The construction industry

The Construction Industry

  • Public Perception is often:

    • One of Lazy, shovel-learning,

    • Cheating Cowboys who bodge, rather than build.

    • In reality, the vast of construction activities is carried out by professional to the highest standard.

Changes have often been slow – but what are apparently small developments can have quite significant effects on productivity


What are the problems

What are the Problems

  • Adversarial and fragmented processes.

  • Very little time spent on design development.

  • Minimum communications and interactions between the construction team.

  • High out-turn compared to initial cost.

  • Poor site construction planning.


The construction revolution

The Construction Revolution

  • Modernisation

  • Client Satisfaction

  • Team work

  • Innovative processes, products and tools

  • Whole life cycle approach
