Construction Project Management Made Easy

Routledge presents a new pocket book providing a solid foundation for any project manager.

Managing a construction project requires a broad range of skills, from technical expertise to leadership, negotiation, team building and communication. This compact no–nonsense guide covers all of the essentials of the role, including:

  • Pre-construction activities
  • Design management and BIM
  • Procurement
  • Feasibility studies
  • Environmental management systems
  • People skills
  • Recommended document formats
  • Occupancy activities

Construction Project Manager’s Pocket Book tackles the typical activities associated with the role in the order they occur on real projects, making the book exceptionally accessible and easy to follow. With reference made to the RIBA Plan of Work and OGC Gateway process throughout, as well as how BIM has changed the responsibilities and requirements of project managers, this up-to-date book discusses the key industry trends. Complete with standard models and pro-formulas, this is the ideal concise reference which no project manager, construction manager, or quantity surveyor should be without.
