Studies on developments in the Brazilian civil construction report there is still a disconnection between the design phase and implementation in addition to a lack of management and coordination of effective design. This frequent dissociation compresses time and cost of project development that usually can be understood as an isolated instrument. In this context, academic education significantly influences the practices exercised by professionals in the labor market and the fragmented form of education currently adopted does not provide a collaborative environment, affecting the integration of the various agents involved in the development of the project and during the execution of the building. Thus, the main objective of this study is to evaluate the influence of vocational training in project management activities by applying a case study of a large project. As a result, it has been found that the company studied could better manage and coordinate the design process.

The study results indicate that management concepts provide important inputs to professional training of construction agents.
