The management of construction projects is a wide ranging and challenging discipline in an increasingly international industry, facing continual challenges and demands for improvements in safety, in quality and cost control, and in the avoidance of contractual disputes. Construction Management grew out of a Leonardo da Vinci project to develop a series of Common Learning Outcomes for European Managers in Construction. Financed by the European Union, the project aimed to develop a library of basic materials for developing construction management skills for use in a pan-European context. Focused exclusively on the management of the construction phase of a building project from the contractor’s point of view, Construction Management covers the complete range of topics of which mastery is required by the construction management professional for the effective delivery of new construction projects. With the continued internationalisation of the construction industry, Construction Management will be required reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students across Europe.

Aimed at construction professionals, contractors and undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book confronts all of the difficult problems that arise in claims situations in the UK and internationally. Extensive reference to UK and international case law and a systematic approach to various types of claims, assisted by helpful and explanatory diagrams, make this book second to none as a 'trouble-shooting' guide to the presentation of, and response to, the negotiation and settlement of claims. This new edition considers in equal measure the latest editions of both NEC3 and JCT contracts and provides worked examples of claims under each. It also includes the latest revisions to the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and the Scheme for Construction Contracts, which together make significant changes to payment and adjudication in the construction industry. Other key features: • A practical approach to solving contract claims including essential sections on claims presentation, delay analysis and non-productivity calculations • An emphasis on dealing with factual evidence • Helpful spreadsheet examples • Up-to-date coverage of developments in competition law in relation to the public procurement regulations, and the impact of these requirements at tender stage • A book that will save professionals and contractors time and money, and prepare students for the reality of the construction industry

Boston's Central Artery/Tunnel Project, a 7.8 mile system of bridges and underground highways and ramps, is the most expensive public works project ever undertaken in the United States. The original cost estimate of $2.6 billion has already been exceeded by $12 billion, and the project will not be completed until 2005, seven years late. The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority (MTA), the public steward of the project, requested that the National Research Council carry out an independent assessment of the project's management and contract administration practices, with a focus on the present situation and measures that should be taken to bring the project to a successful conclusion. This report presents the committee's findings and recommendations pertaining to cost, scheduling, and transitioning from the current organization dominated by consultants to an operations organization composed largely of full-time MTA staff. The report recommends that MTA establish an external, independent, peer-review program to address technical and management issues until the transition to operations and maintenance is complete; begin a media campaign now to teach drivers how to use the new system safely; and develop, immediately implement, and maintain a comprehensive security program.

Most medium to large construction contracts include a claim forextra payment for variations or disruption to the programme. Whilstthe causes of the claim are often well documented, what can andcannot be included in the payment is often misunderstood and thecalculation of quantum consequently becomes vague and poorlysubstantiated. Thoroughly updated over the previous edition, reflectingpertinent Court decisions on damages and the duty to mitigate, thenew edition covers new provisions of the revised JCT 2005 contractsand the 2005 New Engineering Contract. There is substantialadditional material on issues arising from time and delay analysisand the financial consequences of changes to time – issuesthat regularly cause real problems in the evaluation of quantum forconstruction claims. Most current books on the subject concentrate on theestablishment of liability and the requirements of individualstandard forms of contract. This book, however, concentrates on thequantification of claims after liability has been established,regardless of the form of contract used, and sets out theprinciples and methods that should be reflected in the evaluationof claim quantum and the standard of substantiation required. Itwill therefore appeal to those working with both building andengineering contracts. Reviews of the previous edition "Well written and highly informative" BuildingEngineer “His observations on the assessment of productivity andthe use of facilities and equipment are particularly helpful forlawyers, who deal with construction claims” ConstructionLaw

The National Academy of Construction (NAC) has determined that disputes, and their accompanying inefficiencies and costs, constitute a significant problem for the industry. In 2002, the NAC assessed the industry's progress in attacking this problem and determined that although the tools, techniques, and processes for preventing and efficiently resolving disputes are already in place, they are not being widely used. In 2003, the NAC helped to persuade the Center for Construction Industry Studies (CCIS) at the University of Texas and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to finance and conduct empirical research to develop accurate information about the relative transaction costs of various forms of dispute resolution. In 2004 the NAC teamed with the Federal Facilities Council (FFC) of the National Research Council to sponsor the "Government/Industry Forum on Reducing Construction Costs: Uses of Best Dispute Resolution Practices by Project Owners." The forum was held on September 23, 2004, at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. Speakers and panelists at the forum addressed several topics. Reducing Construction Costs addresses topics such as the root causes of disputes and the impact of disputes on project costs and the economics of the construction industry. A second topic addressed was dispute resolution tools and techniques for preventing, managing, and resolving construction- related disputes. This report documents examples of successful uses of dispute resolution tools and techniques on some high-profile projects, and also provides ways to encourage greater use of dispute resolution tools throughout the industry. This report addresses steps that owners of construction projects (who have the greatest ability to influence how their projects are conducted) should take in order to make their projects more successful.

Construction contracting businesses have generally a very high bankruptcy rate of any type of private business, worldwide. Things could be going great, but one unpaid change order, a late payment, a costly rework, or an unanticipated legal claim has the potential to derail your progress and leave you fighting for the remains of your company. Construction claims are also a major hassle for owners, and therefore the only good construction dispute is one that is avoided. Spending time and money on arbitrators, or even worse, on a lengthy and painstaking litigation process, is sure to throw a wrench in your budgetary plans for the year. This book by Oswald Townsend looks at the different types of construction claims and offers insight on how to stay far away from them, how to negotiate disputes when they do come up, and how to reach a fair resolution for both parties without wasting time and money with lawyers.

Changes to the work on construction projects are a common cause of dispute. Such variations lead to thousands of claims in the UK every year and many more internationally. Liability for variations is not only relevant to claims for sums due for extra work but this is also an important underlying factor in many other construction disputes, such as delay, disruption, defects and project termination. This is the first book to deal exclusively with variations in construction contracts and provide the detailed and comprehensive coverage that it demands. Construction Contract Variations analyses the issues that arise in determining whether certain work is a variation, the contractor’s obligation to undertake such work as well as its right to be paid. It deals with the employer’s power to vary and the extent of its duties to approve changes. The book also analyses the role of the consultant in the process and the valuation of variations. It reviews these topics by reference to a range of construction contracts. This is an essential guide for practitioners and industry professionals who advise on these issues and have a role in managing, directing and compensating change. Participants in the construction industry will find this book an invaluable guide, as will specialists and students of construction law, project management and quantity surveying.
