From the Publisher:

Comprehensive and unique in its perspective, this text covers all areas of the Construction Management industry -- with a balanced focus on both theory and practicality. It helps students gain a knowledge of the Building Industry as a whole and the technical skills required to manage a construction project from conception through occupancy.

From the Back Cover:

This new edition provides a broad overview of the construction manager's role and responsibilities. After introducing the industry players and processes, the author covers estimating, scheduling, and project control. Background concepts lead off each chapter, followed by practical applications supported by illustrations and sidebars. All of the key concepts in the book relate to actual construction projects in various stages of development.

This text consists of four sections:

  • The overview section introduces readers to the concepts of team play, bonding, value engineering, and partnering.
  • The estimating section is developed in the context of a project's evolution, showing increasing detail as the project progresses, thereby feeding information to the construction manager to support sounder design and construction decisions. A new chapter has been added to this section. "Assemblies Estimating" shows the reader how to do accurate estimates at the schematic stage of design.
  • The scheduling section covers several methods but focuses on the Critical Path Method. Activity definition, the creation of a logic diagram, calculation of activity durations, and network calculations are ail explained.
  • The project control section looks at how the integration of the schedule and the estimate forms the work plan that accurately projects resource usage.
