Management of Construction Projects: A Constructor’s Perspective

Management of Construction Projects: A Constructor’s Perspective

By John E. Schaufelberger and Len Holm

Description

Unlike most 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 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, more extensive, and more challenging case study to take students through critical 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.

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 to see a successful project from start to finish. 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.
