Building Technology and Construction Management

Term 'Building technology' refers to the technical processes and methods used in the constructing buildings.

Construction management is the process of planning, coordinating, providing monitoring and controlling of a development venture. This style of project management is designed for the, as the name implies, construction industry. There are some types of construction that use management; they are industrial, civil, commercial, environmental and residential. Each category has its own way of running projects, but all will follow the construction management methodology.

Construction management has five stages, where project management has five phases. The stages are design, procurement, build, and owner occupancy.
