Overview

Drawing on the author's extensive experience in construction engineering, administration, and education, this reference addresses each of the principal contract administration duties in logical order—from the hands-on viewpoint of a resident engineer on a construction project. Takes a project team approach for improved job efficiency, outlining a construction team operation in which the administrator delegates to the greatest possible extent all those contract administration functions that can be more effectively done in the field. Updates all chapters to twenty-first century technology. Adds coverage on Electronic Project Administration. Revises coverage of construction scheduling, based on contributions from an acknowledged expert in that field. Explores the various relationships between parties involved in construction, offering guidance on what to say or do, and what not to say or do, to avoid the risk of claims. Provides filled-out examples of documentation forms recommended for construction administration. Includes the latest DOT and local standards specs and applications for city and county projects. Provides information to help managers promote on-the-job safety. Helps managers improve job efficiency with guide specs for specifying CPM. Ideal as a review for those preparing for certification exams, a reference for seasoned professionals, and a single-source primer for those new to construction.
