Tackling actual on-the-job situations, it goes through: estimating, including conceptual and order-of-magnitude estimates, and electronic data processing techniques; arbitration and mediation roles for claims and contract dispute resolution; safety on the jobsite, including setting up an effective safety program and the latest OSHA safety and health standards; and new trends such as partnering, design-build, and e-construction.

* Ensure that contracts represent your company's real commitments
* Estimate and buy out the job to lock in good profits
* Monitor and control ongoing costs
* Get and stay on top of schedules
* Deliver the quality that generates repeat business
* Develop a cost-effective safety program
* Bulletproof your legal position with solid documentation
* Defend against unwarranted claims and pursue justifiable ones

This Fourth Edition gives you the benefit of the authors 40+ years' experience in managing construction projects. Plus, you'll find updated or new coverage of:
* Design-build
* Effective writing techniques
* E-construction and the advantages to construction operation and management
* Building hazards including indoor air quality

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide for competatively bid projects that use AIA forms for administration and contract, April 29, 2008
This is a carefully written book focusing on competitively bid commercial construction projects using the "design then bid" method of project delivery. The book assumes that the AIA (American Institute of Architects) set of forms will be used - a reasonable assumption since these forms are apropriate and have long been the standard of this delivery system. If lump sum competative bid is the only project delivery method you will use, this book should be helpful.

However, the very different approaches of construction management, and project management involving contractor input through out the project delivery process, are not addressed. So, the concept of continuous quality improvement can not be used. Simlarly the very common AGC forms more apropriate to these delivery systems are not discussed. Although rehab of old buildings (for change management), and design build are covered in chapters 11 and 12, this is an after-thought not central to the book's approach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Track to acquire best skills, July 23, 2001
By A Customer
I have worked for 3 years in project management company about construction, but I cannot establish transparent concepts about Project Management. At the moment, this book was messiah to me almost drowning in deep mud pool of construction field. Most of all not only beginners to PM but also skillful PM can gain lots of useful informations from this book.
