  • Information


Unique among construction project management textbooks, Management of Construction Projects, third edition, takes the constructor’s perspective, carefully analyzing a complex, real-world construction case study from multiple angles to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, and techniques students require to become successful project managers.

Popular as an undergraduate text and as a contractor resource, the book identifies key stages of the project-management process, such as delivery methods and contracts; estimating, planning, and scheduling; preconstruction services; subcontracting and material management; documentation, communications, and payment; controls, quality, and safety; leadership and ethics; and claims, disputes, and close-out. This third edition includes a novel case study, a new chapter on preconstruction services, updated contract forms and figures, and additional student exercises, and integrates use of project management technology.

Topics include building information models, sustainable construction, environmental compliance, lean construction, and off-site construction.

Boxed examples, or short case studies, have been included with each chapter.

These examples correspond directly to the chapters in which they are included and give the reader an applied approach to learning the concepts presented. While primarily focused on the management of commercial projects, the principles and techniques in Management of Construction Projects also apply to residential, industrial, and heavy construction.

Written in straightforward language from a constructor’s perspective, this textbook prepares upcoming construction project managers with everything they need to see a successful project through from start to finish.
