Summary "Construction Project Management is a guide to the Critical Path Method (CPM) of project scheduling. It combines a solid foundation in the principles and fundamentals of CPM with particular emphasis on project planning. A highway bridge with a complete cost estimate is used to illustrate each of the principles of project management. Using this basic information and the case studies in the appendix, students are given project management problems and hands-on project management experience."
"Features of Construction Project Management, Fourth Edition include: complete coverage of planning and scheduling principles that apply to every type of construction project; special emphasis on the most difficult and important part of CPM - the planning process; a new chapter on production planning, the process of turning the project plan into efficient workplace operations; new methods for handling construction contingency planning and weather delays; in-depth coverage of the legal aspects of CPM scheduling; and large illustrations conveniently tucked into a back cover pocket." "A text for both building construction and construction engineering students, this book is also an on-the-job reference for builders, architects, civil engineers, and other construction professionals."--BOOK JACKET
