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 and 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 students 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; and
  • claims, disputes, and project close-outs.

Also new to this edition is coverage of emergent industry trends such as LEAN, LEED, and BIM. The book contains essential features such as review questions, exercises, and chapter summaries, while 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 project managers and everything they need to know in order to see a successful project through from start to finish.
