Management of Construction Projects: A Constructor's Perspective
|von John E. Schaufelberger|
Synopsis Written from the perspective of the general contractor's project manager, this comprehensive text illustrates the team approach to project management that is prevalent in private-sector construction. Using a single commercial construction project to illustrate the skills, knowledge, tools and techniques needed to be a successful project manager, the authors present each topic in the sequence in which the project manager would address them. The focus is on the individual management processes and techniques needed to manage a project with a review of management tools used in the performance of these processes. The text aims to facilitate students' learning by providing specific tools that can be used to perform the concepts discussed. It includes American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract and Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) subcontract documents and provides students with examples of standard contract and subcontract documents that are used extensively in private-sector construction. Extensive coverage includes an exploration of warranty management, human resources management, and preconstruction services. The text provides review questions and exercises.
