Construction Superintendent Operations Manual

The boss brings in the work, the project manager assembles the team—but it is the project superintendent who is going to get the project built. The project superintendent’s role in the construction process is a critical one. He or she is the field general, directing tens or hundreds of skilled tradespeople to ensure the timely completion of the project, provide assurance that the contract requirements will be met, and, hopefully, allow the company to turn a profit. The project superintendent needs people skills, technical know-how, and mastery of the carrot-and-stick management approach. These frontline supervisors are always willing to lend a helpful hand or a sympathetic ear, but they are also tough when required, always mindful of the C’s required for a successful

Construction Project Management 5th Edition
A Practical Guide to Field Construction Management

This book is about Critical Path Method (CPM)–based planning and scheduling as applied to the construction industry. The book’s distinguishing feature is the use of one example project throughout to demonstrate planning, scheduling, project acceleration, resource management, time control, financial control and the project cost system. The example project is a highway bridge.
It has been suggested that a building project might be more appropriate for many readers. We have seriously considered that suggestion, although the complexity of even a simple building tends to obscure project management fundamentals in logistical detail and diminish the clarity of the book

Construction Program Management – Decision Making and Optimization Techniques

Construction Program Management
 Decision Making and Optimization Techniques

This book will look on the different program management methods, ranging
from simple decision-making techniques and statistics analysis to the more complex
linear programming, and how program managers, directors, clients, stakeholders,
contractors, and consultants can benefit from the availability of these different
techniques. The book is unique in a way as it looks on how to apply new and
developed techniques to optimize for the delivery of programs mainly in the field of
artificial intelligence especially knowledge-based systems and genetic algorithms.
The author’s unique experience in complex management, program management,
and his past research and studies in analytical analysis and mathematical modeling
and artificial intelligence has induced him to write this book to well inform readers
about the different techniques that can be applied for future program execution.
No doubt indeed, the future of the construction industry will be in how to
execute programs, especially the Middle East war torn areas such as Syria, Libya,
Iraq, and now Yemen. As well, African countries and Asian countries will need to
be able to execute well-managed programs to build their infrastructure with limited
time and constraint budgets.

Praise for Leading and Managing Innovation

today are achieved through projects and programs.
Executives in all business, industrial, governmental, and non-governmental organizations need to fully understand the differences between operational and project management principles and practices to best take advantage of the power of effective project management and thereby lead and manage innovations within their enterprise.
This book seeks to satisfy that need by presenting concise descriptions of (1) the key concepts underlying project and program management, (2) the important characteristics of projects and programs, (3) how they are best governed and managed, and (4) how to determine if the desired benefits have actually been achieved.
It also describes what executives can reasonably demand of the project management discipline and of the executives and managers responsible for that discipline within their organizations.
We do not attempt to go into the details here of project planning, estimating, scheduling, reporting, and control. A typical description of a project manager’s responsibilities for one specific type of project is presented in order to convey the integrative characteristics of that important role in project management

The Strategic Management of Large Engineering Projects

The Strategic Management of Large Engineering Projects


Large engineering projects (LEPs), such as airports, urban-transport
systems, oil fields, and power systems, constitute one of the most
important business sectors in the world. These projects tend to be
massive, indivisible, and long-term artifacts, with investments taking
place in waves. Their effects are felt over many years, especially as
auxiliary and complementary additions are made. As an indication of
the demand for capital investment in infrastructure, in 1999 more than
1,500 LEPs in the world were at different stages of financing or construction—
each worth over US$1 billion—in sectors such as oil, power,
transportation, and manufacturing (Conway Data 1999). These projects
transform daring utopias into reality, such as a dam to produce
8,000 megawatts in the Brazilian Amazon, an oil platform in the stormy
North Sea, multicountry simulation systems for air-traffic management,
networks of roads and tunnels, and so forth. The number, complexity,
and scope of such projects have been growing rapidly over the
last few decades.

Avoiding Claims in Building Design

The origins of this book have probably lain dormant in my sub-conscious ever since i started in practice more than 40 years ago.if anyone had mentioned risk or risk management the they would have meant little to me or i suspect to anyone else in practice
