Building Design Review – Engineering Skills Development Training

What is Design Review?

Building Design Review briefly as ‘Able to conduct a review of technical engineering design and the ability to provide comments and/or recommendations during the project different design stages”.

Building Design resolves client requirements into a set of instructions for the construction of a building that satisfies those requirements. It tends to follow a relatively consistent process of project definition followed by the iterative development of an increasingly detailed solution.

It is important that regular reviews are carried out during the different design processes to ensure that the developing design properly reflects the client’s requirements and that the design and budget do not diverge.

Design Reviews are typically coordinated by the lead designer. They may involve the consultant team, the client, independent client advisers, and where there is one, the contractor. They may also involve external organizations that specialize in undertaking design reviews.

The course in building design review techniques should encompass the development of a number of sub-skills and competencies.  These are translated here into course objectives.


  • Able to understand and promote Design quality principles.
  • Able to apply relevant Value management techniques and methods.
  • Able to understand and use diverse Design Review methods
  • Peer review
  • Constructability review
  • Third-party specialized review
  • Risk Management
  • Delegates working in leadership roles who desire to enhance their leadership competencies and maximize effectiveness in current positions. This is an experiential-based dynamic process whereby delegates not only know but also learn to reflect on and apply knowledge. This course is recommended for anyone involved with the Design and construction of Projects.
