Planning & Construction News

Planning & Construction is a crucial and somewhat challenging part in the execution of construction projects. It incorporates a whole host of tasks, from the estimation of resources and duration of tasks to the choice of technology and predicted budget of a project. Developing the planning & construction strategy is a vital task in the management of construction. It may also be helpful when making organisational judgments about the relationships between project participants and even which organisations to include in a project. Our team of editors offer a wide range of planning & construction-based articles. We look at projects applying for planning permission, projects successfully completed and the planning system as a whole. There are plenty of newsy pieces and features delving deeper into the world of construction for you to get your teeth into… enjoy!
