Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098270349X, Hardcover)What it takes to develop, plan and manage a construction project.
This straightforward and readable, yet thorough, textbook focuses on the role of the contractor, taking the reader from start to finish -- from the early development stage through bidding, selection of the contractor, the construction itself, and close-out. A wide range of practical issues are explored, and frequently-asked questions answered:
-- Exactly who the players are in construction and what each one does
-- Why contractors should avoid some jobs, and how they get the right jobs
-- What bidding is, and why the low bid isn't always the best bid
-- Why different types of construction contracts carry different levels of risk
-- The link between the type of contract and how the contractor gets paid
-- Why cost estimates and schedules are keys to project success
-- How a general contractor brings in a job on time and on budget
And much more:
-- Bonds, insurance, and liens
-- Avoiding and resolving disputes
-- Design-build, integrated project delivery and BIM
-- Change orders
-- Getting paid
-- Extensive glossary of construction project management vocabulary
With a complete introduction to Green Building.
