Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written from the perspective of the general contractor's project manager, this comprehensive construction project management reference illustrates the team approach to project management that is prevalent in private sector construction. Using a single commercial construction project to illustrate concepts, the authors' present topics in the sequence the project manager would address them. The focus is on the individual management processes and techniques and tools needed to manage a project. The authors address all aspects of construction from contracts, selecting a project, cost estimating, planning and scheduling, contract development, partnering and team building, subcontracting and material management to project start-up, document and record keeping, communications, field questions, submittals, quality and safety management, contract change orders, claims and disputes, warranty management and advanced topics in project management. For construction contractors and those interested in construction management.

Book News Annotation:

The material in this undergraduate text is presented in the context of a real construction project. Although the company used in the text's ongoing example is fictitious, the project was actually constructed, and photos of the project in progress are used throughout the text. Chapters conclude with review questions and exercises, and appendices offer some 120 pages of sample plans, contracts, and forms. The text assumes knowledge of the construction process and methods, cost estimation, and project planning. The authors are affiliated with the University of Washington.

Synopsis:

This text is organized within the context of a real construction project, emphasizing the skills, knowledge, and techniques needed to be a successful project manager. The example of a single construction project used throughout the text is an effective analytical tool in that the topics are addressed in the sequence that a manager would address them on the job. The fact that it is a real-world project will be meaningful to readers who seek to apply concepts to everyday practices. Key features of this edition:
  • Discussion of the interrelationships between field and office operations as well as the relationships between the estimate, the schedule, and cash flow.
  • Excellent photographs depict the stages of the project's development.
  • Logical organization of chapters and review questions.
