Effective Construction Management Planning, BirminghamBOOK NOW
12/09/2018 09:00:00 - 12/09/2018 17:00:00

The Construction Management Plan (CMP) tool has been established as a key tool for managing traffic impact of new development while it is in the build phases. However, with increasing pressure to manage out unnecessary traffic from urban centres and sensitive rural locations, combined with the advocacy of Clear Zones and other environmental restrictions, the creation of SMART CMPs is even more important. This course looks at the role of construction management and logistics plans to creatively manage down delivery and other freight traffic without compromising the build process and ensuring that the solutions are affordable and efficient. Dovetailing of CMPs with wider supply chain
practices and business planning are key aspects which both developers and urban planners needs to address in the shaping and delivery of the CMP. This course will examine some of the best practice already established in this field, and provide a clear structure and process for helping effective CMPs to be assembled, delivered and monitored.

Healthy Streets - Improving the Walkability of our Cities, LondonBOOK NOW
26/09/2018 09:00:00 - 26/09/2018 17:00:00
Walking is the glue that holds all trips together. Most short journeys are still made wholly on foot and is one of the most common form of travel in Britain; accounting for 22% of all journeys in 2012, forming the first and last mile of most longer journeys. Walking offers a healthy, low-cost, non-polluting mode of transport that is available to most people, regardless of age and income. It has a significant role to play within an overall integrated transport system, both as a mode of transport in its own right and in conjunction with other modes.

Walking is the nearest activity to perfect exercise and is the cheapest and simplest form of transport. Not only does it keep the walker healthy but it keeps the planet healthy too by cutting down on harmful air pollutants. The benefits of a cleaner environment not only offer health benefits it can often be a catalyst for improving the economy.

This course sets out the strategic drivers including economic, environmental, social, technologies and political domains that are shaping our future cities. It discusses the movements and place dimensions and identifies the various benefits of walking and how that would be achievable by quantitative and qualitative measurements.
