Preface to Construction Project Administration eBook
New To Construction Project Administration 10th Edition
Mr. Fisk’s original preface still remains applicable to
this, the tenth edition: The principal objective of this book is to provide
those of us who are active in the construction industry with a single source of
information that will help address the responsibilities and risks that we are likely
The principles covered in this book have been gleaned from
hundreds of projects worth billions of dollars over hundreds of years of
construction. They are applicable to horizontal as well as vertical
construction; small and large projects; and government, commercial, industrial,
and private construction.
All may not be applicable to a particular project,
but they remain valid principles nonetheless. The revisions in this edition
were necessary because of changes in technology and industry practices as well
as shifts in the way that owners choose to have projects constructed.
have been some changes made as a result of user feedback and chapters
reorganized in order to improve the flow of the material.
The material covering Preconstruction Conferences in
Chapters 10 and 12 have been combined into Chapter 12 to minimize redundancy and
to improve readability.
Since so many projects are now being constructed
using the Design-Build (DB) project delivery system, it became appropriate to
elaborate further on how DB impacts the principles discussed throughout the
With almost universal usage of computers to schedule projects, arrow
diagramming has fallen into disuse and hence most of the arrow diagramming the discussion was removed from Chapter 14.
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design (LEED) has become so prevalent in the construction industry that the author felt it appropriate to address its impacts on material
already presented in the book.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination
System (NPDES) was added to Chapter 8 because those permits are required on the vast majority of construction projects and a Resident Project Representative
needs to understand them
Experience Modification Rating (EMR) was also added
to Chapter 8 to further emphasize the importance of safety on all construction
Due to the widespread use of electronic project administration on
construction projects, more emphasis was placed on electronic reporting and
usage of electronic devices.
There have been some changes to chapter
questions in order to be consistent with the revised text material.
Principal contributors to this tenth edition were Mr. Scott
Arias PMP, PSP, CPC, and Dr. Bryan Dyer PE, PLS, LEED AP, both professors in
the Construction Management program at Eastern Kentucky University.
President of ACE Consulting, Nicholasville, KY, brought his considerable
scheduling expertise and worldwide construction experience to this revision,
and Dr. Dyer, President of Dyer and Associates, Richmond, KY, contributed
extensive insights into Design-Build construction as well as LEED.
I owe them
both a great deal of gratitude for their significant contributions to improving
the breadth and depth of this edition. I also wish to thank my wife, Karen
Reynolds, for her patience and support, while I worked on this revision.
And last, but not least, I wish to thank my mentor, Mr. Ed Fisk, who taught me
so much and gave me the opportunity to keep his vision alive in this textbook.
He is sorely missed. While many people have contributed to writing this book
throughout the years, I alone take responsibility for any errors found in this
edition. The author is grateful to the many contributions made since this book
was first published.
Contributors to previous editions included: Julius (Jim)
Calhoun, Esq., Asst. General Counsel for Montgomery-Watson in Pasadena, CA
