View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Construction professionals have a range of demanding responsibilities; towards clients, their companies, and to abide by government regulations. It is understandable that busy practitioners could forget their ethical responsibilities in the face of these pressures, but maintaining a rigorous ethical standard is crucial to long-term success.

Written to meet the ACCE’s requirements for all construction students, this textbook draws on the authors’ industry experience, as well as detailed case studies to introduce and explore ethics in the construction industry. Within each chapter, the authors present the key ethical issues in important areas of construction management such as:

  • Contracts and bidding
  • Documentation
  • Codes and Compliance
  • Discrimination and Harassment
  • Client Relations

Lists of further reading and discussion questions will help readers at all levels to develop their understanding of this issue. Written as a resource to accompany students throughout their degrees, this is the ideal book to give students or practitioners the breadth and depth of understanding required to successfully negotiate the ethical challenges facing the construction organization of today.
