Building Design Cost Management

Research output: Book/ReportScholarly editionResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The design and construction of building projects is a complex and demanding process. It involves a variety of disciplines, including architecture, quantity surveying, engineering and construction management. The common objective is to deliver, on behalf of clients commissioning construction work, buildings of the right quality at the right price and within the right time-scale.

This introductory textbook explains the development, application and pivotal role of design cost management from inception through to completion of a project, and considers its context and relevance within current construction procurement in communication between all those involved in the process, and outlines how to achieve better information management, underpinned by information technology, to help overcome the criticisms of the industry for too often delivering projects late, over budget and of poor quality.
