environmental, social and behavioral well-being.
The course provides basic technical grounding on construction issues including contracts, regulations, building systems, materials and technology.
Students will learn to ‘read’
building plans, review and analyze the impact of building design
in the built environment. Students will develop effective leadership skills in managing designers, consultants and contractors in development projects.
