Construction Project Management, Third Edition provides students with the “big picture” of the construction management process, giving a perspective as to how the construction industry functions in relation to the national economy and in the public's eye. Examining in detail the estimating, scheduling, control and administrative functions of a project and how they tie into the project “timeline,” the text focuses on the collaborative effort required to complete any public or private project, and examines the roles and responsibilities of all project participants.
