Construction Superintendent Operations Manual

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

project: control over time, control over costs, control over quality. The Construction Superintendent’s Operations Manual, Second Edition, contains the basic information every project superintendent needs, from interpreting and administering the complex construction contracts of today, to methods of improving organization in the field, to dealing with the intricacies of urban rehabilitation projects. This book is jam-packed with helpful tips and reporting forms required for today’s fast-paced projects. The CD inside the back cover includes a whole host of handy forms along with a series of form letters directed to owners, architects, and subcontractors covering most of the documentation concerns arising in the field today—just type in the recipient’s name, address, and the projectspecific
data and send the form on its way.
