On time and in budget. As a construction project manager achieving this, while maintaining quality, is the most valuable package you can offer your clients. Of course, its value derives largely from it's difficulty - if it were easy to complete jobs entirely to plan then it would happen rather more often. Using a combination of worked examples and case studies, this book examines how projects go over-cost, what lessons can be learned from past examples and what approaches have successfully been employed. Example case studies include: The Scottish Parliament Wembley Stadium Heathrow Terminal 5. If you're studying Surveying or Construction Management, or starting out as a Construction Cost Manager and need to plan or assess construction projects then this is the book for you.
