Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Construction Contracting comprises the entire set of skills, knowledge, and conceptual tools needed to successfully own or manage a construction company, as well as to undertake any actual construction project. This updated Seventh Edition is driven by important changes in construction laws, regulations, contractual documents, and means of project delivery.

From the Inside Flap

Construction Contracting The most consulted reference in the industry, Construction Contracting has through successive editions been considered the guide to finding out how to successfully manage and run a construction contracting business. Not simply a working blueprint of operational specifics, Construction Contracting is a comprehensive professional’s handbook that unites business insight with practical reality, organizational expertise with job-specific nuts-and-bolts. Fully revised for the ’90s, the new sixth edition of Construction Contracting is an arsenal of some of the most useful construction practice techniques and technological tools available to a manager today. Not only does the book describe new ways of executing contracts including Total Quality Management and partnering, it describes exactly why the computer has become indispensable to a company’s day-to-day operations. The new Sixth Edition also features expanded coverage of such fundamentals as cost estimating, bidding, contracts, and contract bonds as well as the latest developments in insurance, labor law, and labor relations. The book also sheds light on some effective new business methods as well as unique inside tips on successfully managing project time and project cost. The book addresses issues relevant to architects, engineers, managers, and employees alike. The book features an in-depth look at establishing project safety, a broad overview of the construction industry today, as well as a clear look at the dynamics and machinery of the modern construction organization. Complete with many ready-to-use forms, including the latest from the AIA, CSI, AGC, and AAA, the newest edition is an invaluable resource containing the essential business documents, such as ownership agreements, construction specifications, construction contract conditions, and a bid form/unit price contract. An all-in-one information toolkit for today’s construction manager, Construction Contracting, Sixth Edition offers the essential equipment for building an efficient, profitable, and flourishing construction enterprise. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Construction Classic !, February 26, 2000
By A Customer
This book is a legendary classic in the field of general construction and is a must for personnel involved in construction management, general contracting and professional consulting. It covers all aspects of construction from company organization, estimating, field procedures, cost control, changes, punchlist, claims, labor relations and safety. The appendix contains reference standard documents and contract boilerplate from the AIA, AGC and others. It would take 20 years of work in the construction field to obtain the knowledge that this book can help to provide. This text is a must for all construction professionals.

This review is from: Construction Contracting: A Practical Guide to Company Management , 7th Edition (Hardcover)
I got this book and it was so nice. The information includes with many detail of construction industry that you should know. However, it is a bit hard to read and understand in the first level coz in each section: the frist paragraph and the last paragraph repeat the same sentence that is overwhelm states.
