Essential reading for owners, those planning a new project and project managers.
The author of several well regarded construction books once again shares useful practical information.
Many construction projects are doomed to fail long before construction even begins. They are the wrong project, built in the wrong place at the wrong time. The design is inadequate, the budget is wrong, a poor team is selected and investigations are incomplete. Some projects are poorly managed and others aren’t finished properly. At any stage your project can go wrong if it’s not managed correctly!
Filled with invaluable tips, insights and advice, this easy to read book takes you from project inception, where the owner decides what they want, where they want it and how much they can pay. To planning, appointing the project team, investigations, budgeting, the design process, selecting the right contractor, preliminary work, construction, and finally, commissioning and project completion. Chapters also cover project scheduling, important financial aspects and contractual arrangements.
It provides a comprehensive checklist to monitor each phase of your project.
Whether you are planning to build a new home, preparing to renovate and extend your house, launching a new project as a seasoned property developer, perhaps a project manager who manages projects on a daily basis, or maybe you are just starting in the construction profession, you will find this book filled with valuable information to help you plan, monitor and manage each project phase to ensure your project is a success.
