Welcome to Week 2

Welcome to the second week in this short course, An Introduction to Financial Management in Construction.

Last week, we explored the definitions of financial management, its objectives and importance in construction.

We were also introduced to the role of the project manager in terms of their financial management responsibilities and learned about the serious implications if robust financial systems and accounts aren’t kept in check.

Through this week’s activities you will:

  • Receive an introduction to bookkeeping and its importance in the construction industry

  • Learn about the unique nature of financial management in construction

  • Explore and evaluate accounting rules and regulations
