Assistant Site Manager, BAM Construction Ltd

BSC (Hons) Construction Management

In my career so far I have been extremely fortunate to work on some of Leeds' most iconic and modern buildings, including Leeds Arena - the new 13,500 capacity music venue.

Ryan Geldard went to Bruntcliffe High School in Morley. He studied a 2 year BTEC in Construction at Leeds College of Building before starting work as Junior Site Manager for Lotus Construction where he spent a year, before moving to BAM Construction LTD. Ryan’s decision to choose a BTEC in Construction rather than traditional A Level’s was based on employability, believing that an education specific to construction would enable him to find an employer. On joining BAM Construction Ryan chose to complete a BSc Honours in Construction Management, a part-time, five-year course with BAM’s full support.

MODULES & LEARNING

This module looks at the financial aspects of running a business, a practice, or a department. It deals with accounts, time value of money and net present values. The commercial management aspect includes focus on management styles and human resource management.

You will study what facilities management is in its broadest sense and the different components that make it. We also concentrate on management of buildings, plant and real estate - looking at the different types of maintenance available.

This module puts together all you have learned and relates it either to a major project at work, or a simulated project if necessary. An example of a project could be a major relocation, which would involve HR, estate management, space planning, contracts, budgets and project management.

We will focus on a project from your workplace, exploring what you have learned and how it has helped. We will also examine how what you have learned from your project has helped with your study.

You will examine the role of a facilities manager, learn how to become a facilities manager and study the employment options that will be available to you.

This course is entirely delivered by web-based distance learning. This means that you can take the course with you wherever you are - all you need is access to the internet and email. You will be supported by email and online audio sessions which will be recorded, giving you a chance to study at a time that's best for you.

Some course work relates directly to the work-place so you may have the opportunity to use a work project to count towards your degree.

    Our course is aimed at practicing facilities managers who wish to enhance their knowledge of the industry while achieving a recognised higher education qualification. The range of modules studied provides a balance between theoretical understanding of best practice and the practical implications of introducing initiatives into the workplace. In particular, the final major project requires students, with the guidance of specialist tutors, to demonstrate the application of knowledge obtained in their studies in a case study development within their actual working environment.

  • After graduating from the University of Huddersfield's School of Hospitality Management Roy began his career in hotel management before moving into commercial and facilities management roles in the Universities of Leeds, Liverpool and York. Roy's managerial experience, teaching experience and research interests equip him to provide students with support that is grounded on practical as well as academic considerations.
