Preface to Construction Cost Management PDF E-book
My first textual content e-book Main Construction Works: Contractual and Monetary Management (Longman) (1995) was based mostly on documentation assembled throughout 1993 and 1994;
this now looks like a prehistoric period earlier than the Latham (1994) and Egan (1998) studies! In that e-book, I tried to determine the important thing points within the profitable contractual and monetary administration on main tasks.
It was based mostly on my expertise as a senior amount surveyor, at separate instances employed by each contractor and consumer, on the Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway – on the time one of many largest building tasks on the planet.
In distinction to the norm at the moment throughout the UK, the large Hong Kong mission – regardless of main difficulties – was accomplished on time and inside finances.
The teachings to be discovered from this mission had been recognized within the case research within the final chapter of the e-book. It was clear from this expertise that any mission could possibly be accomplished on time and inside finances offering the suitable procurement techniques,
planning and management strategies, contracts and monetary procedures had been in place – crucially with skilled, motivated individuals to implement them.
Over a decade later, the world appears very totally different, but the identical fundamentals apply – shoppers want to acquire their mission inside finances and inside time and to the required high quality.
The relentless progress of the World Large Internet (www) meant that each one might now simply entry an enormous array of essential data.
The issue for college kids, nevertheless, was in figuring out which data was important and which was superfluous.
On this new textual content, I’ve tried to embrace the suggestions of the important thing studies and authorities our bodies together with the Nationwide Audit Workplace and the Workplace of Authorities Commerce.
The e-book consists of the instruments and strategies required beneath the brand new partnering/alliancing philosophies in addition to together with chapters on valuing variations and claims based mostly on the normal procurement method.
Observations within the e-book are bolstered all through with detailed evaluation of over 60 mission case research with further hyperlinks to over 100 case research.
Lots of the mission case research are taken from the Constructing journal or the Nationwide Audit Workplace studies to whom the creator is most grateful for permission to publish.
