CPM research overview

The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management (CPM) is a leading international centre for research.

We are part of UCL, one of the top ten QS World University ranking institutions and part of the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, which came first in the 2008 RAE in Architecture and Built Environment.

CPM has a strong team of full-time research-active academic staff, and a small team of contract research staff. Their work is published in leading journals in construction, project management and management disciplines, and is engaged with government, industry and institutions in knowledge development, transfer and application.

Three areas have been particularly prominent in making a considerable and lasting impact:

  • direct influence and indirect contributions to the international development of project management bodies of knowledge
  • the development and application of PPP/PFI concession contracts in the UK and across the world
  • national contributions to enterprise in construction and project management in training, knowledge-transfer-related research and consultancy-related research
