Publisher Comments:

With the construction industry evolving at a rapid pace, there is a growing demand for construction managers who can handle the complexity of the business for all types of projects, including residential, commercial, and public buildings as well as roads, bridges, wastewater treatment plants, and other structures. This book responds to the need in the field for a practical guide, covering everything the reader needs to know on how to become an effective construction manager.

Introduced by the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), the book first explores educational options, then goes on to describe how to apply management techniques to real-world projects. The emphasis throughout is on managing construction projects in ways that meet both clients' needs and serves society at large, with topics ranging from completing projects on time and within budget to the larger questions of infrastructure and sustainable design. Along the way, the book examines risk management and safety codes, using software for scheduling and budgeting, workforce issues and people skills, and much more.
