Explains construction professional practice in an appealing, succinct, and relatively informal way

This book details the management of construction projects from beginning to end, concentrating on the principles underlying what construction professionals like architects and project managers do.

It covers the entire processfrom the initial meetings with clients through the design, recruitment of a contractor, contract management, construction, and handoverall without referencing legal cases, contract clause numbers, laws, statutes, or the complex jargon that can muddle comprehension.

Next the book looks at such on-the-job responsibilities as surveys, ground investigations, cost
estimates, work schedules, letters of intent, etc. The final section goes over everything readers need to know about dealing with a building contract in progress, informing them about advance payments, insurance, site inspections, contractor disputes, terminations, final certificates, and more.
