Description

Construction Management, 4th Edition covers a wide range of subjects, reflecting the breadth of knowledge needed to understand the dynamics of this large and complex industry. This new edition introduces extended coverage in the scheduling area to address more advanced and practice oriented procedures such as Start to Start, Finish to Finish, and similar relationship between activities in a network schedule. To provide increased coverage of topics related to the financial side of the house, two new chapters have been added addressing the impact of taxes on the operation of a company and the evaluation of borrowing, lending, and other financial opportunities using the mathematical concepts of engineering economy. This edition preserves the features that have been most appreciated by its users throughout the years, and adds suggestions provided by readers through formal surveys and informal feedback to the authors.
