Description:

With a fresh approach that addresses the unique features of construction management for the 21st century, this book provides an overview of the construction industry and the management of construction projects. Construction Management: Emerging Trends and Technologies offers solid, foundational concepts in “traditional” areas, including construction contracts, cash flow, estimating and scheduling. Setting it apart from traditional books on the subject, it breaks away from these traditional areas to explore emerging areas of interest, such as “mega-projects,” design-build construction, public private partnerships, the application of information technology to construction, configuration management, and sustainable construction. With thorough, up-to-date information and detailed explanations, this is an indispensable resource for anyone seeking a better understanding of the up-and-coming state of the construction management industry.

Features:

  • Illustrations, tables, and charts supplement key information
  • Scheduling coverage includes both basics of the CPM method, as well as the use of computers, offering both traditional and modern views of this key construction management concept
  • Coverage of estimating offers discussions of both web-based estimating databases and the use of computer programs, emphasizing the increasing role of technology in the field
