DESIGN MANAGEMENT – CASE STUDY AND WORKSHOP - CERTIFIED PROGRAM

Date: 5 November 2017 - 9 November 2017
Course ID: ADDQ010/2017
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $: 2950 US$
Venue: Muscat / Oman

Introduction:

Design management is getting lot of attention in the construction sector due to its strong implications for the entire project. Successful management of design is critical to cost-effectiveness, timeliness and quality of the entire project. According to many studies around 20-25% of the total construction period is wasted due to design deficiencies. Other studies suggest that around 78% of quality problems in construction are design related. From cost point of view, as well, design-caused defects form the largest category. Every construction project has its own requirements with respect to the method of construction, the place of construction and most importantly, what has to be constructed. However, all projects have one thing common to them, and that is, the immense complexities that they possess. The majority of this complexity lies in the design phase of the project. Hence, design management has assumed significance over the years.



This training program will introduce the participants to an introduction to construction industry and project management, the different stages of construction projects, the different development and types of several design management models, the different steps required to the management of a design project and general case studies and applications

Objectives:

Upon completion of this training course, participants will know:



• Mitigation of risk by selection of the most suitable project design type



• Methods of selection and qualifying contractors



• Terms and conditions-examples of commercial terms



• Reducing total cost of project



• Developing better warranties provisions



• How to determine fair and reasonable prices and times



• Structuring economic price adjustments



• Negotiation planning and strategies



• Design management techniques



The organization will benefit by:



• Greater strategic focus of those involved in Contracting



• Higher productivity of design and contracting personnel



• Reduced cost of contracts for materials & services



• Better outcomes in design methods evaluation



• Improved supplier performance



Attendees will gain by participation in this program as a result of:



• Increased skill sets in design process



• A greater sense of Professionalism in design process evaluation



• Knowledge of evaluating prices and times



• Greater ability to lead successful negotiations with suppliers and contractors



• Increased recognition by the organization due to improved performance

Who should attend:

This course is recommended for anyone involved with the design stage of construction, maintenance and repair projects:



 Architectural engineers
