Urban Construction Project Management by Richard Lambeck and John Eschemuller | PDF Free Download.
Urban Construction Project Management is designed to help construction management companies, general contractors, owners and their representatives, architects, engineers, developers, large corporations,.
And students studying construction management in universities throughout the United States and the world better understand and manage construction of complex projects built in large urban environments.
The book is organized into 23 chapters. The chapters include exhibits, checklists, and photographs to which the user can refer when dealing with the subject matter on a real life project in an urban environment.
The chapters address such issues as project organization; problem solving and risk analysis; testing; permits and building codes; safety; logistics; contracts; insurance and bonds; meetings and communications; budgets; schedules; requisitions; and green (LEED) construction.
The book is designed to explain the major aspects of a construction project within an urban environment, and includes several checklists of items to consider while planning and constructing a project in the urban environment.
Copies of these checklists are also available online. Most of the construction contracts in the urban environment are as a construction manager (CM) providing preconstruction, construction, and project close-out professional services, or as a general contractor (GC) with a lump sum bid.
If the owner retains a CM, then the CM has the opportunity to provide preconstruction planning services for the project.
The proper planning of a construction project is the key to its success. Building in an urban environment presents many unique challenges, especially in cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., as well as large urban cities around the world.
In these large metropolitan areas, there is a large concentration of people, high-rise buildings, narrow sidewalks and streets, mass transportation systems, underground utilities,
local building ordinances and restrictions, adjoining public and residential areas, and union issues, which provide for unique opportunities and challenges.
These are addressed in this book to assist CM/GCs with building in the urban environment. Some of the large urban projects that have been built recently and which have had to deal with these unique challenges are New York Times Corporate Headquarters, New York;
Hearst Tower, New York; AOL Time Warner Complex, New York; Bloomberg Corporate Headquarters, New York; Bank of America Corporate Headquarters, New York; Solaire,
New York; Hilton San Diego Convention Center Hotel, San Diego, California; Burg Dubai, Dubai; Taipei 101, Taipei; Moscow Triumph Palace, Moscow, Russia; Palm Jumeirah, Dubai; and Merch Serono: Ecological Antidote, Geneva, Switzerland.
