1988) “The Nature of Creativity”. UK, Cambridge University Press, 373, 58 [] McNeill, P. (1985) “Research Methods”. London, Tavistock Publications, 51 [] Peters, T. Gibb2 Abstract This paper describes the development of an undergraduate degree in construction management in the Department of Civil and Building Engineering, Loughborough University, UK. A consortium of ten major national construction companies initiated the course. They wished to sponsor students of high academic ability and good management potential on a course that would provide a sound educational foundation for future managers of their companies.

Were clients receptive to such probing? Did Quality Management techniques feature in the process? Case 1 The client was the general manager of a property development company predominantly involved in large retail development. He was an experienced operator with tertiary qualifications in quantity surveying and construction management including a masters degree. The client observed that the architect tended to be too solution oriented rather than problem oriented, and had tended to skimp on analysing requirements, and tended to hurry towards design solutions too early in the process.

Thus further back in the ‘chain’, a materials manufacturer and supplier, a signwriter, or a regulatory authority inspector, are customers. Put in another way, it is contended that all participants are customers at some point in the process. Contradiction The significant problem for graduates/professionals in the design/construction arena is to define the customers’ needs (client requirements in the widest sense) and to satisfy them. This is a significant problem because the client may only superficially communicate his/her requirements to, for instance, the architect of a proposed building.
