Construction project management requires a broad range of skills, from technical expertise to leadership, negotiation, team building and communication. This no–nonsense guide covers all of the essentials of the role, including:

  • pre-construction activities, 
  • design management and BIM, 
  • procurement, 
  • feasibility studies, 
  • environmental management systems, 
  • people skills, 
  • recommended document formats, and 
  • occupancy activities.

Construction project management activities are tackled in the order they occur on real projects, with reference made to the RIBA Plan of Work and OGC Gateway process throughout. This is the ideal concise reference which no project manager, construction manager, or quantity surveyor should be without.

Preface to Construction Project Manager's Pocket Book

Project management is a comparatively new specialism, having its roots in post-Second World War regeneration, and as such is a discipline that is not just confined to the construction industry.

During the past 30 years or so project management has been increasingly in demand by construction clients, due perhaps to a number of reasons,

Including the reluctance of architects to take on the role of project manager and the increasing complexity of building and commissioning new and refurbished buildings.

Finding a definition of construction project management is complicated by the use of a variety of similar terms, with individuals and / or organisations adopting the title project manager without fully appreciating the nature or the scope of the discipline.

It is hoped that this Construction Project Managers pocket book will help to define the role of the construction project manager, as well as introducing not only the generic skills required by project managers but also the specific skills required by the construction project manager.
