What is this RICS Built Environment Journal article about?

The APC pathway guide for building surveying requires that candidates for the Construction Technology & Environmental competency must;

'Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the principles of design and construction relating to [their] chosen field of practice'.

They need to be able to apply their knowledge to the design and construction processes. This includes using their knowledge of regulations, design standards and legislation, preparing annotated sketches and specification detailing, and identifying mechanical and engineering services relevant to the area of work.

Candidates need to also advise clients on construction and design and processes and the impact of these on cost and programme, as well as liaising with other specialists and consultants to develop project-specific measures.

Breaking these subjects and issues down can help candidates digest them more easily.
