Overview

This well established undergraduate textbook has been thoroughly revised and updated to cover the latest practices in PFI/PPP, risk management, supply networks, sustainability, lean construction, KPIs, and value management.

Modern Construction Management now addresses in particular the contractor’s role - often neglected in other textbooks – and throughout it emphasises essential skills and core topics for career development and progression in construction.

Two substantial chapters are devoted to self-learning with problems, worked examples and tutorial exercises and the book’s comprehensive, clear and pragmatic approach ensures it retains its position as the core textbook for students of construction management, civil engineering and quantity surveying.

The material in the book is supported with a comprehensive list of questions and solutions that can be employed as a learning aid. These can be found under download tab.
