Overview

After thirty years, it’s still the reference professionals and students turn to… In almost every season and business climate, Construction Contracting has been the cornerstone of the professional’s library—an all-in-one handbook and blueprint on successfully running and managing a construction operation. Written by two veterans of the industry, Construction Contracting outlines some of the most useful construction practice techniques and technological tools available today as well as the keys to turning a construction operation into an efficient, high-profit business. Fully updated for the ’90s, the new Sixth Edition describes new forms of contracting, such as design build, as well as the growing role of computers in a construction business. It also features expanded coverage of such basics as cost estimating, bidding, contracts, and contract bonds as well as the latest developments in insurance, labor law, and labor relations. Effective new business methods as well as important inside tips on successfully managing project time and project cost are also reviewed. With many ready-to-use forms, including the latest from the AIA, CSI, AGC, and AAA, the newest edition of Construction Contracting is a complete working resource for the construction professional in the field or office and an indispensable preparatory tool for students.
