Risk Analysis and Management in the Construction Engineering Industry (1.8 CEUs)

Posted by Global Innovative Campus on Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Start Date
Monday, March 25, 2013

End Date
Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This course introduces the concept and general principles of risk analysis and management and how and when they can be implemented in the construction industry. The course explores the risk management strategy and the process of managing risks from the identification stage and the initial assessment to the response and mitigation stage in a detailed approach. In addition the course discusses the risk assessment methods and offers a simplified method based on multiple of published researches for construction projects in classifying risks within the Joint ventures category or under Design Build contracts. Case Studies will be offered.Objective
To develop an understanding of the general principles of risk management and increase the participants’ awareness on risk management implementation in the construction industry. To enable project managers and engineers to visualize the risk management strategy and enable them to find solutions to respond to these risks within their engineering or construction projects. To enable engineers and projects managers to examine the potential pitfall along with the project’s overall time, cost and quality targets, enables them to consider risk efficiencyTarget Audience
Projects managers and engineers of national, provincial and local building construction or highways agencies and Construction contractors’ engineers and project managers who deal with major or mega projects including the projects under Joint ventures agreements or design build contracts and
