Book Description

Project Management for Building Designers and Owners presents the concepts, tools, and ideas to help design firms and owner/client project managers to better communicate and perform their jobs.
Topics include:

  • Streamlining the complexity and costs of current building design and construction
  • Integrating the often-fragmented nature of the team in designing and constructing buildings
  • Assessing the reengineering trend of reducing in-house facilities and staff in planning, coordinating, and managing a project
  • Outsourcing responsibilities to traditional engineering, architectural, and facilities firms as well as program and project management firms
  • Comparing traditional design firms and specialty firms - in terms of finding and keeping capable staffs, project scope management, fee and time pressures, and a myriad of other issues
  • Communicating effectively within this highly fragmented, specialized, and complex arena
    This edition comprehensively outlines the fundamental means to effectively manage and control a project's scope, schedule, and budget.
