Content

The unit synthesizes knowledge and skills of project cost planning within the context of Australian Building and Construction Industry (ABCI) economic and macroeconomic policies which shape built environment business ecologies. The unit examines the concept of economically sustainable projects through the theory and practice of life cycle costing and evaluation. The influence of design decision making on short term construction sector production and long term asset portfolio performance in relation to capital and life cycle costs will be analysed, as students will be challenged to critique contemporary practice on major international projects. Value/cost management/engineering methodologies and project cost planning techniques will be introduced through a case study approach to allow students to explore their unique enabling role in sound economic decision making in early project phases. The unit will engage students in analysis of quality data and information as they refine their evaluative and justification skills to support client, community and professional financial objectives.
