When Advanced Project Management first appeared in 1981 it quickly acquired a reputation for excellence on both sides of the Atlantic as a book that successfully bridges the gap between introductory texts on project management and specialist works on professional practice. Its aim is twofold: to provide both a guide for managers, engineers, accountants and others involved in project work and a reference for advanced students of project and construction management.This fourth edition of the book has been heavily revised, with substantial new material to reflect the changes in project management in the 10 years since the previous edition. The following topics are either new to the book or have been given greater emphasis:- Project definition and appraisal- Procurement and the supply chain- Concurrent engineering- Cost and management accounting- Quality management- More detailed explanations of critical path analysis, now predominately using the precedence system- Increased treatment of resource scheduling- Planning with multiple calendars- Planning within fixed time constraints, using crashing and fast-tracking methods- Standard networks, modules and templates- Risk management
The management of construction projects is a wide ranging and challenging discipline in an increasingly international industry, facing continual challenges and demands for improvements in safety, in quality and cost control, and in the avoidance of contractual disputes. Construction Management grew out of a Leonardo da Vinci project to develop a series of Common Learning Outcomes for European Managers in Construction. Financed by the European Union, the project aimed to develop a library of basic materials for developing construction management skills for use in a pan-European context. Focused exclusively on the management of the construction phase of a building project from the contractor’s point of view, Construction Management covers the complete range of topics of which mastery is required by the construction management professional for the effective delivery of new construction projects. With the continued internationalisation of the construction industry, Construction Management will be required reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students across Europe.
The newly updated Fourth Edition of CONSTRUCTION JOBSITE MANAGEMENT examines all facets of construction project management from the contractor’s point of view. The responsibilities of project managers, construction superintendents, and construction engineers are covered in depth, from configuring a project team through closing out a project. The text maintains a strong focus on jobsite personnel activities, outlining proven procedures and offering helpful techniques to manage projects effectively from start to finish. Clear, concise language and accurate, relevant detail make this book an essential introduction to the real world of construction jobsite management.
