Course Brief

Unit Abstract 

While working in a team is an important skill in construction projects, collaboration goes beyond just teamwork. The success of a project relies not only on the ability of each person in a team to do their work, but on each individual’s awareness of how their work relates to the work of others, how to ensure that information is shared effectively and that roles and responsibilities are clear.

Through this collaborative project-based unit, students will explore how to define roles within a collaborative team, recognising the skills (and ‘skills gaps’) of each member of the group. Together students will work to develop a construction project; based on their research and analysis, in response to the Pearson-set ‘theme’. Content in this unit will typically include role identification and allocation, collaborative structures, human resources management, project management,
procurement, tender documentation, information/data sharing, meetings, health &safety, project costing and Building Information Modelling.
