``A practical guide for construction managers on how to complete construction projects as specified, on schedule, and within budget.'' (Sci-Tech Book News )
From the Back Cover How to complete construction projects as specified, on schedule, and within budget
Most construction managers bring strong technical skills to the job site, but few possess the management skills it takes to successfully coordinate the many phases of a construction project. This lack of managerial expertise is often the underlying reason for project delays, excessive spending, and ultimately, dissatisfied clients.
In this highly practical guide, one of the nation's foremost project management experts shows you how you can achieve project goals by gaining control over the entire construction management process. You'll learn how to plan and organize each stage of a capital project--from initiation to close-out of the completed facility.
Beginning with a useful introduction that defines the roles and responsibilities of the construction manager, the book offers proven, field-tested methods for:
* Preparing project bids and proposals
* Negotiating contracts
* Determining cost estimates and project budgets
* Establishing realistic schedules
* Organizing human, physical, and financial resources
* Designing, building, and motivating a field organization
In addition, you'll find vital coverage of such important collateral functions as construction safety and health ... project communications ... human relations ... using PCs in the field ... financing ... control systems ... and more. Case studies demonstrating management procedures are included, along with sample construction documents that can be adapted for your own project needs.
Whether you are a construction manager, field engineer, or seeking career advancement in the construction industry, this indispensable resource presents a "total systems approach" to construction management that will ensure the success of any construction project.
The National Building Code of India is a single document in which, like a network, the information contained in various Indian Standards is woven into a pattern of continuity and cogency with the interdependent requirements of Sections carefully analyzed and fitted into make the whole document a cogent continuous volume. A continuous thread of 'preplanning' is woven which, in itself, contributes considerable to the economies in construction particularly in building and plumbing services.
The code contains regulations which can be immediately adopted or enacted for use by various departments, municipal administrations and public bodies. It lays down a set of minimum provisions designed to protect the safety of the public with regard to structural sufficiency, fire hazards and health aspects of buildings; so long as these basic requirements are met, the choice of materials and methods of design and construction is left to the ingenuity of the building professionals. The Code also covers aspects of administrative regulations, development control rules and general building requirements; fire protection requirements; stipulations regarding materials and structural design; rules for design of electrical installations, lighting, air conditioning and lifts; regulation for ventilation, acoustics and plumbing services, such as water supply, drainage, sanitation and gas supply; measures to ensure safety of workers and public during construction; and rules for erection of signs and outdoor display structures.
Sullivan, Gary. Barthorpe, Stephen. Robbins, Stephen , "Managing Construction Logistics"
Wiley-Blackwell | 2010 | ISBN: 1444323393, 1405151242 | 304 pages | PDF | 10,7 MB
Every major industry except construction uses logistics to improve its bottom line…
Poor logistics is costing the construction industry at least £3 billion a year according to a report – ‘Improving Construction Logistics’ – published by the Strategic Forum for Construction. Additional costs arise as a result of operatives waiting for materials, and skilled craftsmen being used for unskilled jobs. Inadequate management of logistics also has an adverse effect on quality, causes delays to projects, and adds to the health and safety risks on site.
This practical book highlights the benefits of good logistics as well as the use of consolidation centres on projects. It shows how reduction in transport movements, less money tied up in stock, less waste, and the more efficient use of skilled craftsmen will reduce the cost of projects, reduce construction time, improve quality, reduce risks to health and safety, improve environmental performance and generally improve the image of the industry.
The authors offer practical ways of achieving these benefits through integrated project teams and supply chains and the increased adoption of information technology including electronic communications, bar coding, and electronic tagging for tracing products. They also show how specific roles for each part of the industry can help to improve logistics.
The fi rst edition of this reference manual was developed to aid users in applying the provisions of the 1971
edition of “Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-71).” The second through fi fth
editions updated the material in conformity with provisions of the 1977 code edition, the 1980 code supplement,
and the 1983 and 1989 code editions, respectively. The sixth through ninth editions addressed the 1995, 1999,
2002, and 2005 editions of “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-95), (ACI 318-
99), (ACI 318-02) and (ACI 318-05).” Through nine editions, much of the initial material has been revised to
better emphasize the subject matter, and new chapters added to assist the designer in proper application of the
ACI 318 design provisions.
This tenth edition refl ects the contents of “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-08).”
The text and design examples have been revised to refl ect, where possible, comments received from users of
the “Notes” who suggested improvements in wording, identifi ed errors, and recommended items for inclusion
The primary purpose for publishing this manual is to assist the engineer and architect in the proper application of
the ACI 318-08 design standard. The emphasis is placed on “how-to-use” the code. For complete background
information on the development of the code provisions, the reader is referred to the “Commentary on Building
Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318R-08)” which, starting with the 1989 edition, has been
published together with the code itself under the same cover.
This manual is also a valuable aid to educators, contractors, materials and products manufacturers, building code
authorities, inspectors, and others involved in the design, construction, and regulation of concrete structures.
Although every attempt has been made to impart editorial consistency to the thirty-four chapters, some
inconsistencies probably still remain. A few typographical and other errors are probably also to be found.
PCA would be grateful to any reader who would bring such errors and inconsistencies to our attention. Other suggestions for improvement are also most sincerely welcome.
