Management of Construction Projects : A Constructor's Perspective (Hardcover) (John E. Schaufelberger &
about this item
Unlike the majority of construction project management textbooks out there, Management of Construction Projects takes a distinctive approach by setting itself in the context of a single and real world construction project throughout, but also by looking at construction project management from the constructor’s perspective. This project based learning approach emphasizes the skills, knowledge and techniques students require to become successful project managers.
This second edition uses a brand new, larger and more challenging case study to take the student through key stages of the process including:
- contracts and subcontracting
- estimating, scheduling and planning
- supply chain and materials management
- cost control, quality and safety
- project leadership and ethics
- claims, disputes and project close outs.
Also new to this edition is coverage of emergent industry trends such as LEAN, LEAD and BIM. The book contains essential features such as review questions, exercises, and chapter summaries, whilst example plans, schedules, contracts and other documents are stored on a companion website. Written in straightforward language from a constructor’s perspective, this textbook gives a realistic overview and review of the roles of the project manager and everything they need to know in order to see through a successful project from start to finish.
