Course Objectives The aim of the course is to teach students to systematically organize building construction process of a designed building project through strategic decisions, technological knowledge and methods.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to define the general sequences of the building works, as well as their non-linear nature.
  • Will be able to explain general rules for measurement of work items and their units.
  • Will be able to determine execution scenario structure, WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), priorities and methods of work for preliminary work planning.
  • Will be able to propose new construction techniques and technologies in cooperation with experts.
  • Will be able to evaluate Plant and Equipment of construction works and introduction to their performance issues.
  • Will be able to estimate mobilization, basic principles of site organizations and manpower of construction works.
  • Will be able to discuss health and safety issues of construction works.
  • Will be able to explain demolishing works, waste management of construction projects and environmental issues.
Course Description The course will introduce the formulation of construction strategies and methods for architectural projects right before the start of the building process. Keeping in mind the “unique” character of construction projects, the course is based on “Designing an execution scenario" in a systematic way, which is much needed in the construction sector for efficient distribution of resources. In other words, the course is formulated as a practice to execute the building works on paper.
