Construction project management requires a broad range of skills, from technical expertise to leadership, negotiation, team building and communication. This no–nonsense guide covers all of the essentials of the role, including:

  • Pre-construction activities
  • Design management and BIM
  • Procurement
  • Feasibility studies
  • Environmental management systems
  • People skills
  • Recommended document formats
  • Occupancy activities

Construction project management activities are tackled in the order they occur on real projects, with reference made to the RIBA Plan of Work and OGC Gateway process throughout. This is the ideal concise reference which no project manager, construction manager, or quantity surveyor should be without.
