Book Description

Managing building services contractors can prove to be a minefield. The most successful jobs will always be those where building site managers have first built teams focused on tackling issues that might cause adversarial attitudes later on and jeopardize the project. The author shows how a simple common management approach can improve site managers' competency in overseeing building services contractors, sub traders and specialists, and maximize the effectiveness of time spent on building services.
