Summary

Management in the construction industry is a complex task, with team members often undertaking hazardous work, complying with stacks of regulations and legal requirements, and under the constant threat of plans going awry, however there is no need for all construction management textbooks to be so complicated.

Starting with a general overview of the industry, Introduction to Construction Management is the beginner’s guide to key concepts, terms, processes and practices associated with modern construction management in the UK. Supported by diagrams, illustrations and case studies, this book explores construction management from a variety of perspectives, including:

  • Production management
  • Commercial management
  • Quality management
  • Health and Safety management
  • Environmental management

Also incorporated are important industry trends including sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and the advent of BIM. This is the most approachable text available for anyone starting to learn about construction management, at HNC/HND, FdSc, or BSc level.
