Construction Management Principles and Practice Press Reviews

'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
