9780415442879: Construction Cost Management: Learning from Case Studies

On time and in budget.

As a construction project manager, achieving this while maintaining quality is the most valuable package you can offer your clients. Of course, its value derives largely from it's difficulty – if it were easy to complete jobs entirely to plan then it would happen rather more often.

Using a combination of worked examples and case studies, this book examines how projects go over-cost, what lessons can be learned from past examples and what approaches have successfully been employed. Example case studies include:

  • The Scottish Parliament
  • Wembley Stadium
  • Heathrow Terminal 5.

If you're studying Surveying or Construction Management, or starting out as a Construction Cost Manager and need to plan or assess construction projects then this is the book for you.
