Welcome to the Department of Construction and Management

The Department of Construction and Management has a remit to focus on the construction process and its management, including materials, construction processes for buildings and engineering works, project and construction management, contracts and legislation, health and safety, cost control, real estate and geodetics.

The construction process and its management is often not given due importance in research and study. There is, however, probably no greater demand, in the industry, for professionals who work in the management of the construction process of buildings and engineering works, who understand procurement systems and their legislative implications, who can the lead in the very important and topical issues of health and safety on site, who can assist developers and contractors with cost and value engineering, who can direct time and quality management of projects, who can assist in the resolution of construction disputes, and who understand the real estate market and its management.

This department aims to build up the Faculty’s capacity to deliver courses on the whole gamut of related disciplines, as well as to research and study the development of the construction industry and of the real estate market.

The Department promotes the study of Materials Engineering, Construction Technologies and Life Cycle Engineering. It is active in research in Materials Engineering including cement bound materials and concrete, reinforced concrete structures, composites in construction, the durability performance of materials including concrete and composites, the use of waste materials including industrial by-products as cement replacement and additions in concrete and the appraisal and repair of reinforced concrete structures. It is also active in research in life cycle analysis and service life design of structures, innovative construction systems and technologies in civil engineering applications and sustainable construction.

It has participated in research projects in collaboration with national and international organisations focusing on the use of waste materials in concrete and degradation of reinforced concrete structures, structural vulnerability and Life Cycle Engineering.
