Construction Site Coordination and Management Guide (Paperback)
Coordination is an important function in the building process. Recent research has shown that poor or inadequate construction site coordination is often the best that can be found on most construction sites. Yet this critical aspect of construction management is generally overlooked in construction management texts and instruction. The purpose of this book is to provide that missing guidance on how to successfully coordinate and manage construction projects. It offers an overview of the strategic planning of construction projects, and site logistics--from initial launch, on through procurement, contract management, and the general project management aspects of completing a construction project on time and on budget. It covers everything from risk management and safety management to proper handling of construction documentation. It highlights different construction processes required to enhance their practical performance on specific construction projects, and to further the construction industry in general. This book will educate, inspire and provide construction professionals with some of the tools required for proper and successful project implementation.
