Behind the success of any construction project is the effective site management of the works by the principal contracting organisation. Construction Management provides a comprehensive introduction to the key management concepts, principles and practices that contribute to project success. Up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, and packed with examples and case study material, this book is suitable for a range of students including: HNC/D and undergraduates students on building, civil engineering, construction management, quantity surveying, building surveying and architecture courses.
It would also be a useful reference for postgraduates and young construction professionals.

'This publication serves not only as a provider for information, on day one, for the student but also a very useful focus for the professional seeking support before, during and after the construction process...Each section provides detailed text in a logical format and allows people to drop in and out of the book and gain project specific task advice. A lot of text, a lot of information and a lot of use. A positive contribution to the Construction Process.' - Building Engineer
