Successful Construction Project Management is a ‘must read’ before you start your next project. It provides useful practical tips for managing a construction project and is aimed at construction professionals as well as those studying construction project management. Managing a construction project isn’t an easy job and requires many skills. Some skills are learned by attending courses and colleges. Others, however, are only learned by experience, and often the hard way – learning from mistakes. This book will show you how to avoid the many pitfalls in construction. It includes chapters on planning the project, starting it, scheduling, running the project, completing it, people, materials, equipment, quality, safety, subcontractors, contractual and financial. These chapters are broken into multiple sections providing a step-by-step guide to successfully managing a construction project, and, including what-not-to-do to avoid costly mistakes. Key features of the book are it: • is written for construction professionals by a construction professional • avoids being too ‘textbook’ in nature • has numerous practical examples • includes topics essential to managing projects which aren’t included in most other project management books • has the information clearly set out • includes useful and relevant information dealing with the everyday issues of managing a project By reading and using this book Project Managers will avoid many problems frequently encountered on construction projects. The book is an excellent reference which can continually be referred to so important steps in the construction management process aren’t omitted. 'Building a Successful Construction Company - The Practical Guide' by the same author is a valuable companion book to this.
