Design and construction manager apprenticeship

Lead, manage and coordinate the design and construction process on building and infrastructure projects

Design and construction managers are based in a design studio, office or on a construction site. You will work for small or large organisations within a design or construction project team, as you manage and coordinate the design and construction process on building and infrastructure projects, acting as the link between designers, construction teams and project stakeholders. Working on-site, you will maintain and coordinate the work to carry on efficiently, as well as facilitate cost control and the build review process. You will ensure any potential risks have been taken into account in all designs and that health and safety regulations have been adhered to and will help to ensure that the project is completed to the specification outlined in the design and to agreed parameters of cost and programme. On completion of the design and construction manager apprenticeship, you’ll gain a BSc in construction engineering management or a BSc/BA in architectural technology, or an equivalent design and construction discipline level 6 qualification.
