In 1991 the Chartered Institute of Building initiated a multi-institute task force and a Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development was published in 1992, with second and third editions in 1996 and 2002. Like previous editions, this fourth edition has been extensively updated. The fourth edition includes a range of new illustrations and high profile examples, and features new guidance on:

  • CDM regulations
  • Project planning
  • Change management
  • Project management software
  • Mobile technology
  • The range of procurement options
  • The European perspective
  • Contracts

Effective project management involves the assessment and management of risk, and this is a strong theme throughout the Code. The Code of Practice provides an authoritative guide to the principles and practice of construction project management. It will be a key reference source for clients, contractors and professionals, irrespective of the size and nature of the project.
