How to complete construction projects as specified, on schedule, and within budget
Most construction managers bring strong technical skills to the job site, but few possess the management skills it takes to successfully coordinate the many phases of a construction project. This lack of managerial expertise is often the underlying reason for project delays, excessive spending, and ultimately, dissatisfied clients.
In this highly practical guide, one of the nation's foremost project management experts shows you how you can achieve project goals by gaining control over the entire construction management process. You'll learn how to plan and organize each stage of a capital project--from initiation to close-out of the completed facility.
Beginning with a useful introduction that defines the roles and responsibilities of the construction manager, the book offers proven, field-tested methods for:
* Preparing project bids and proposals
* Negotiating contracts
* Determining cost estimates and project budgets
* Establishing realistic schedules
* Organizing human, physical, and financial resources
* Designing, building, and motivating a field organization
In addition, you'll find vital coverage of such important collateral functions as construction safety and health ... project communications ... human relations ... using PCs in the field ... financing ... control systems ... and more. Case studies demonstrating management procedures are included, along with sample construction documents that can be adapted for your own project needs.
Whether you are a construction manager, field engineer, or seeking career advancement in the construction industry, this indispensable resource presents a "total systems approach" to construction management that will ensure the success of any construction project.
