The purpose of this book is to present the principles and techniques of project management, beginning with the conceptual phase by the owner, through coordination of design and construction, to project completion. The focus is to apply project management at the beginning of a project, when it is first approved. Too often the formal organization to manage a project is not developed until the beginning of the construction phase. Key Features: This book emphasizes project management from the initial conception of the project by the owner, through coordination of design and development of the construction documents and into the construction phase until project close out. It also illustrates the basic steps and sequencing of steps, to develop a work plan to manage a project through every phase of development and completion.
