Specialist Diploma in Building Cost Management (SDBCM)

Event code: 74051

The design and construction of building projects is a highly complex and demanding process, especially with the increased sophistication of the various disciplines involved, such as architecture, surveying, construction and engineering. Delivering a project of such complexity within the right budget, quality and time-scale is critical in meeting client’s expectations. Building cost management provides owners, developers, architects and contractors the highest degree of cost predictability over the life cycle of a building with the use of cost modelling and management techniques.

The Specialist Diploma in Building Cost Management (SDBCM) prepares you to manage construction cost planning and control right from project inception to the maintenance phase of a building. It provides you an opportunity to gain industry-specific skills and experience in cost estimates and analysis, budget forecasts, facilities planning, conceptual studies and bid comparisons for the design and construction of property.

The curriculum also covers capital and operating cost assessment skills and project control decisions. Upon graduation, you can find career opportunities as quantity surveyors or cost managers in Singapore’s booming construction industry.
