9 weeks (1 day/week) + 3 weeks (4 days per week) for Consortium case studies, simulation or project research

The course is defined by both as an investigation and intense study of global “leading practices” in the building industry in the broadest sense.

The goal is to provide the ability and potential for design professionals and specifically SOS students “to lead” in the professional, in practice and in projects.

The course covers three main topic areas to provide approaches, processes, strategies and structures for projects in the four tracks.

INTELLIGENT INVESTMENT IN THE PROFESSION

Content focuses on the role of professionals in Design, Planning and Development processes at large scales.

INDUSTRY INNOVATION IN PRACTICE

Content focuses on the emergence of practice-based use-inspired research leading to building innovation.

INTEGRATED DELIVERY FOR PROJECTS

Content focuses on the particular methods of high performance teams to deliver high performance projects at a range of scales.

Leading Practices is designed to support the SOS Consortium for Practice and Research. Specifically, a one month intense period following the foundation courses is devoted to developing comprehensive and detailed case studies, simulations and / or project research for the SOS Consortium Members.
