Editorial Reviews

Review

"The text flows smoothly, is easily understood and is clear to anyone who reads it. Photos, illustrations, and example documents enhance the textual material." -- Wayne Reynolds, Eastern Kentucky University "Comprehensive, well written, accurate. Includes evidence of real-world problems and processes in the construction industry." -- David Bilbo, Texas A&M University "This is a very valuable text packed with a lot of good and pertinent information." -- Scott Fuller, Auburn University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Product Description

For courses in Construction Management, Construction Contract Administration, and Construction Inspection. Drawing on the author's extensive experience in construction engineering, administration, and education, this text/reference addresses each of the principal contract administration duties in logical order--from the hands-on viewpoint of a resident engineer on a construction project. It specifically addresses the responsibility and authority of the Resident Project Representative, unlike other texts which focus on the project manager. The text takes a project team approach for improved job efficiency, outlining a construction team operation in which the administrator delegates to the greatest possible extent all those contract administration functions that can be more effectively done in the field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too wordy and unstructured, June 24, 2008
This review is from: Construction Project Administration (8th Edition) (Hardcover)
One would have thought that after so many editions, the thick book would have been far less wordy and better structured. The main problem is not structuring according to project life cycle, resulting in many repetitions and unnecessary topics such as how to use a camera on site! Construction projects must be managed in a simple and efficient manner so that milestones can be tracked and problems are quickly resolved. Having unnecessary details divert attention from such basic principles.
