Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470674024, Paperback)Design management as a recognised role in the built environment industry is relatively new, initially arising from the need for better co-ordination and delivery of design information from design teams to main contractors - particularly important as procurement routes involving contractor led design have become much more commonplace. The advent of design packages driven by specialist sub-contractors has also increased the need for co-ordination and management of the design process. With the growing complexity of construction projects, effective design management is increasingly central to project success. BIM, as it gains acceptance across the industry will undoubtedly have a huge impact on project delivery process and the role of the Design Manager. The CIOB Design Manager's Handbook covers subjects such as design process and management tools, the role of the Design Manager, value management and innovation, procurement routes and implications, people dynamics, and factors that will affect the development of the Design Manager's role in the future, including BIM. It will ensure Design Managers understand the processes, tools and skills that are required to be successful in the role, and will assist them in delivering real value to complex construction projects. Written for both the Design Manager practitioner and students on construction related degree courses, anyone interested in construction based design management will also find the book useful.
