Editorial Reviews

Review


"While reading Construction Project Management, I recalled the days early in my career as an architect/engineer. The description of weekly meetings and topics covered, estimates put together first by the architect on a square foot basis and the more detailed estimates of the general and subcontractors, and checking and coordination of shop drawings all rang true to my memory of how things actually happened on the job." — William W. Campbell, Montgomery College (retired)

Product Description

Construction Project Management, Third Edition provides readers with the “big picture” of the construction management process, giving a perspective as to how the construction industry functions in relation to the national economy and in the public's eye. This book focuses on the collaborative effort required to complete any public or private construction project, providing the construction professional with the skills needed to work with and alongside the owner representative, the designer, and within the public's eye. It explains in detail the project elements and environment, and the responsibilities of the varied project professionals, and follows in detail the chronology of a project.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introductory overview - but a little weak on real world applications, September 11, 2008
This review is from: Construction Project Management (3rd Edition) (Hardcover)
This book uniquely covered the traditional construction management subjects of estimating, scheduling, control, then added preconstruction activities and project delivery methods, followed by construction law and safety. These subject, which are integrated together in the work world, are usally found in 3-4 different books.

Some additional depth, such as adding order of magnitude estimating, and estimating by assemblies, was a welcome addition.

A little more "this is how it is really done in the real world" would have been helpful.Choosing Project Success - A Guide for Building Professionals

4.0 out of 5 stars Construction managment, August 11, 2001
This book was written by my old professor at wentworth institute of technology. Although he only gave me a B in the class i have to say the book was written very well ;). It is designed to give the reader important information of construction management in a very basic way. If you are a beginner in the construction business you can not go wrong with this book.
