Construction Management is a wide ranging discipline, but
ultimately it is a demanding, hands-on discipline concerned with
the management of people, plant and materials, all mobilised to
complete a building project safely, on time, on budget and to the
client?s satisfaction.    

Management of Construction Projects is a highly
illustrated series of case studies based on seven live construction
management projects, demonstrating the very practical nature of
managing projects. The detailed case studies cover a variety of
construction projects, varying in value from £1million to
£117 million, including a major inner city office block, a
portal framed factory unit, a university refurbishment project, a
superstore & car park and a new school building. The case
studies emphasise detailed on site management procedures and
identify a predominantly functional approach to managing projects.
A number of related chapters covering practical and theoretical
aspects of construction management support and illustrate the
individual case studies.

With a strong emphasis on the practical nature of the subject,
Management of Construction Projects is an ideal introduction
to the subject for all students on construction and related degree
and diploma programmes. It will be of particular interest to
students preparing for the CIOB EPA programme and the new NVQ
courses at level 4 and 5 in construction management.
