Design Management is increasingly central to any successful building project, and design managers need to understand the role, processes, tools and soft skills that are required to be successful. The CIOB Design Management Handbook will embody a design management Code of Practice, developed by the CIOB Faculty of Architecture and Surveying, enabling the design manager to provide tangible benefits for contractors and customers by ensuring the smooth flow of design data as projects become complex.
