From the Publisher:

You will not find a book with as much information and practical application for construction contracting. I have worked with construction firms since 1994, traveling the continental United States (and still do). As you know, people do things differently in all regions of the country. There is no one way to manage your business. Having more than one approach makes a contractor flexible and profitable. We have captured and interpreted all these practices and present them in this book.

What your will receive:

- In-depth overview of the business of contracting - Analysis of the three major business processes of every contractor - 140+ best practices in the construction industry. - Time saving business tactics for construction. - Forms that help you stay organized - Examples of reports, and other necessary management information - Illustrations that capture insights of the business. - Examples to help you apply the insights. - How to reduce risk and increase profits

From the Author:

We feel that this book serves a real need. There 600,000+ construction firms in the United States and not many share their business practices with each other or the young contractor ready to start his firm. Now, there is a place that construction people can go to learn effective business strategies, practices and methods to increase profits while reducing risk.

We give to you the answers to:

1) What are the top 3 productivity enhancing practices of most contractors? 2) How do you consistently leave less money on the table? 3) What is the one reason for not having enough work? 4) What are the proven methods of adding overhead cost to a job? 5) What is the difference between profit mark-up versus margin and which should you use. 6) What is the cost of rework? 7) What kind of compensation system makes employees act like owners. 8) What the top 50 Best Practices that all Contractors use? 9) How do you manage people more effectively? 10) What are the accurate sources of financial data and compensation information for the construction Industry? 11) How do you calculate the true return on invesment of a job and what should be your minimum requirement in most cases. 12) How do you caculate your "walk away number" 13) What are the habits of the top foremen in the country? 14) What do the top 25% of all estimators do? 15) Technology - what is the best software in the world for the construction contractor?
