Project Management for Facility Constructions


Project Management for Facility ConstructionsA Guide for Engineers and Architects

This handbook is a review of concepts, methods and practical techniques for
managing projects to develop constructed facilities in the industries of oil and gas,
power, infrastructure, architecture and commercial building.

It is addressed to a variety of professionals willing to improve their management
skills. On the one hand, it is aimed at helping newcomers to the engineering and construction
industry understand how to apply project management to the field practice.
On the other, it allows experts in technical areas of engineering and construction
approach project management disciplines.
In education, this text is suitable on undergraduate and graduate classes in architecture,
engineering and construction management, as well as on specialist and
professional courses in project management.

Project management is a professional practice involving a variety of disciplines
to support the tasks required to effectively complete a project. Managerial activities
include decision making, problem solving, planning, scheduling, directing,
coordinating, monitoring and control.
In all sectors, projects are complex endeavors that call for the application of management
practices from all players and stakeholders involved. In particular, plant
and building asset construction projects require the joint effort of several actors
usually organized on a multipart contract structure: owners, investors, lending institutions,
developers, designers, construction contractors, and consultants, which take
action with different perspectives and interest on the project.
The challenge is to establish a managerial environment that enables a successful
project development while maximizing the mutual benefit of each party.
With this approach, I hope that this book will be a helpful brief guide for those
who are asked to effectively contribute with various roles in a capital investment
