Auteurs : Radosavljevic Milan, Bennett John
The theory provides 26 propositions which detail in clear terms the actions which construction managers can take to make construction more efficient. This deep understanding of construction is essential reading for final year students worldwide in all construction related disciplines.
Construction Management Strategies: a theory of construction management describes the strengths and limitations of the major construction management strategies currently found in leading practice worldwide: traditional construction, design build, construction management, partnering and the highly efficient, total construction service. The descriptions are supported by worked examples which use mathematically based Inherent Difficulty Indicators to measure the nature of individual construction projects and the effects of alternative strategies.
The book gives students the basic toolkit needed to think through the situations they will face in practice, and it gives construction managers responsible for companies and projects a robust methodology for checking their own approach in terms of construction efficiency.
