  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The 4th semester Process and Planning topic will cover core aspects from the theory fields of Project Organization and Procurement and Life Cycle Analysis.

    By meeting the objectives of this topic you will have gained knowledge and understanding of:
    • The scope and benefits of Integrated Project Procurements
    • The scope and benefit of integrating Manufacturing Design for prefabricated glazing systems
    • Building Information Modeling based planning techniques and relevance

    By meeting the objectives of this topic you will be able to:

    • Work with industry standards and agreements used for integrating Manufacturing Design for Glazed building systems
    • Apply Integrated Project Delivery for the project at hand
    • Perform Cost estimates and Time scheduling, using advanced Building Information Modeling based planning techniques for integrating relevant data from a building model
    • Perform Life Cycle Cost estimate – based on the Life Cycle Analysis of alternative building systems and materials proposed by design professionals
    • Gains skills in preparing Tender Documentation for tendering the Project Team in Integrated Deliveries and tendering Subcontractors

  • Type of instruction
    The teaching is based on the understanding that learning is most efficient if students are given the opportunity to work with real-life assignments from, or inspired by, companies in relevant industries.
    When choosing a project, the possibility of incorporating the academic and professional challenges throughout the semester into the project must be taken into account.
    The students are given the opportunity to be involved in the various project phases, from preliminary analysis to realisation of the project. In connection with the project work, the students are faced with real-life problems to be solved based on the given theory, and are to organise the work in such a way that deadlines can be met. The students are furthermore provided with the necessary qualifications to work independently, thereby preparing them to complete the final project as an individual assignment.
    This working method allows the students to gain an understanding of how problems are identified and analysed, how solution models are set up, and how the right solution is adopted.
