Superintendents today face many more demands than ever before. Builders typically offer more customization of standard designs, often resulting in more complex construction. Management of these construction projects has likewise become more complex. Cost control and analysis of cost variances are now standard practices, and computerized scheduling is becoming widely accepted.
Throughout the book, the author stresses the importance of such issues as time management and leadership. Checklists and forms make this an essential reference for every construction manager.
