Project management for built environment businesses — Project setup requirements

Welcome to part three of our series on project management. In this five-part series, we’re focusing on the key challenges architecture, engineering and construction design (AEC) businesses face when managing projects for the built environment.

Here we’re examining the importance of proper project set up for the successful management of both your projects and your business as a whole. We’ll explain what’s critical at the point of set up to give yourself a project win, and why it’s so important.
