Unlike the majority of construction project management textbooks out there, Management of Construction Projects: A Constructor’s Perspective, 2nd edition (PDF) takes a distinctive approach by setting itself in the context of a single and real-world construction project throughout and also by looking at construction project management from a different, i.e. the constructor’s perspective. This project-based learning approach emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and techniques students require to become really successful project managers.
This 2nd edition of Management of Construction Projects uses a larger, brand new, and more challenging case study to take college students through key stages of the process, including:
- project leadership and ethics;
- contracts and subcontracting;
- quality, cost control, and safety;
- scheduling, estimating, and planning;
- disputes, claims, and project close-outs;
- and, supply chain and materials management.
Also new to this second edition is coverage of emergent industry trends such as LEED, LEAN, and BIM. The ebook contains essential features such as exercises, review questions, and chapter summaries, while example schedules, plans, contracts, and other documents are stored on a companion website. Written in straightforward language from a constructor’s perspective, this eTextBook gives a realistic overview and review of the roles of project managers and everything they need to know in order to see a great, successful project through from the start to finish.
