This book’s focus is not on construction per se. Its focus is on the construction
process and those individuals who manage that process. Construction management
involves the organization, coordination, and strategic effort applied to the
construction activities and the numerous resources needed to achieve the building
objective. Construction management combines both the art and science of
building technology along with essential principles of business, management,
computer technology, and leadership.
Construction management as a profession is a relatively new concept, which
may explain why you have not heard of it before. Up until the 1960s, the management
tasks associated with large construction projects were typically handled
by civil engineers. But in 1965, faculty from nine universities gathered in Florida
to form the Associated Schools of Construction.
