Construction Management Principles and Practice



Construction Management Principles and Practice by Alan Griffith, Paul Watson

Behind the success of any construction project is the effective site management of the works by the principal contracting organisation. Construction Management provides a comprehensive introduction to the key management concepts, principles and practices that contribute to project success. Up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, and packed with examples and case study material, this book is suitable for a range of students including: HNC/D and undergraduates students on building, civil engineering, construction management, quantity surveying, building surveying and architecture courses. It would also be a useful reference for postgraduates and young construction professionals.


'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'
