School buildings occasionally need replacement, rebuilding or expansion as part of the growth, improvement and modernisation of a school. Such school development projects generally involve obtaining design, architectural, planning and legal advice, and sourcing contractors to carry out the construction work itself.

This topic covers the funding of school construction projects and the seven key stages of the project management process. Information about designing school accommodation can be found in the School Design topic. Information about the safety aspects of construction work can be found in the Construction Safety topic.
