A core undergraduate textbook for construction managers, reflecting current best practice, topical industry preoccupations and latest developments.

Modern Construction Management presents construction as a socially responsible, innovative, carbon-reducing, manager-involved, people-orientated, crisis-free industry that is efficient and cost effective.

The overall themes for the seventh edition are:  

  • Drivers for efficiency: lean construction underpinning production management and off-site production methods. Sustainability: reflecting the transition to a low carbon economy
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: embracing health & safety, modernistic contracts, effective procurement, and employment issues
  • Building Information Management: directed towards the improvement of construction management systems

Structured to reflect site, business and corporate responsibilities of managers in construction, the book continues to provide strong coverage of the salient elements required for developing and equipping the modern construction manager.
