Among topics examined are the roles of project participants, the bid process, planning, scheduling, estimating, controlling the project, safety issues, and legal and regulatory issues. Sidebars, authored by industry leaders, examine actual incidents and provide insights into the subject matter.

This book will be invaluable to superintendents, estimators, and field managers, as well as project managers. Features include entire chapters devoted to leadership and construction law, comprehensive presentation of content from the project owner's viewpoint, contractor's perspective and coverage of conflict resolution. To address all of the aspects that a successful project manager will need to understand, this text is organized to explore the people involved in the design and construction process, the principal phases of a project, and the tools required to effectively manage the people and the project.

The book is divided into three sections. The first section examines the industry and the profession by looking at the nature of the industry, future trends, and opportunities. It outlines the different sectors of the industry, explains the role of each participant, and analyzes the variety of contractual arrangements available for particular projects. The second section focuses on the project itself, giving an in-depth overview of all aspects of the project from the very first concept to occupancy.

This section emphasizes the role of the construction professional during the design process. This emphasis reflects the actual expansion in early participation of the construction professional. The third section focuses on the tools needed to manage the people and the project. It is intended primarily for practitioners who are looking for an understanding of the changes in the industry and new tools and management methods available for dealing with those changes.

The book will also benefit students of construction management, as well as undergraduate or graduate civil engineering or architectural students who desire to better understand the construction process.
