Covering the life of a construction project from inception to completion, this useful reference explains basic and advanced aspects of engineering economics, cost estimating, cost control, cost forecasting, planning, and scheduling. It serves both as a comprehensive introduction to cost engineering and as a practical, on-the-job guide for any construction project where the object is economy. Construction Cost Engineering Handbook describes the responsibilities of each member of the construction team and defines their relationship to project control ... analyzes project economics before, during, and after a project's finish ... examines various types and methods of estimating ... distinguishes between cost reporting and cost forecasting, with valuable cost and scheduling integration examples ... considers planning and scheduling procedures such as the bar chart and sophisticated contemporary techniques ... highlights ways of avoiding common mistakes through data development ... and furnishes computer samples for estimating, cost control, cost forecasting, and scheduling. Illustrated with more than 180 excellent diagrams and drawings, and featuring convenient appendixes on foreign and remote projects, code of accounts and work breakdown structure, and typical project activities, Construction Cost Engineering Handbook is an indispensable reference for civil, cost, project, plant, design, construction, and industrial engineers and managers as well as architects, building contractors, and financial controllers involved with construction projects.

This volume will enable the reader to successfully undertake pre-project evaluations, especially in the areas of refining and petrochemistry. It encompasses all the essential steps: market analysis, comparative studies of technical and economic issues, sensitivity studies, sizing and costing of the equipment required for an industrial-scale plant, estimation of capital spending, calculation of costs and sales prices, etc. The first edition of this manual proved to be a very valuable teaching tool for universities and advanced engineering and business schools, both in France and abroad. It is essential for the rapid evaluation of the cost and profitability of proposed plants and of those already in operation. It has been widely used by engineers, consulting firms, and corporate research and development departments. Its status as the only current publication that covers all the steps involved in the economic evaluation of projects will render it particularly valuable to its users. It will quickly become indispensable to everyone whose job it is to evaluate the economic impact of the development, cancellation or reorientation of a project.Contents: 1. Market analysis. 2. The elements of economic calculation. 3. The determination of battery limits investments. Appendix 1. Functional modules method (FMM). Appendix 2. PrE-estime method. Bibliography. Index

The book is developed to provide significant information and guidelines to construction and project management professionals (owners, designers, consultants, construction managers, project managers, supervisors, contractors, builders, developers, and many others from the construction-related industry) involved in construction projects (mainly civil construction projects, commercial-A/E projects) and construction-related industries. It covers the importance of construction management principles, procedures, concepts, methods, and tools, and their applications to various activities/components/subsystems of different phases of the life cycle of a construction project. These applications will improve the construction process in order to conveniently manage the project and make the project most qualitative, competitive, and economical. It also discuss the interaction and/or combination among some of the activities/elements of management functions, management processes, and their effective implementation and applications that are essential throughout the life cycle of project to conveniently manage the project. This handbook will: Focus on the construction management system to manage construction projects Include a number of figures and tables which will enhance reader comprehension Provide all related topics/areas of construction management Be of interest to all those involved in construction management and project management Provide information about Building Information Modeling (BIM), and ISO Certification in Construction Industry Offer a chapter on Lean construction The construction project life cycle phases and its activities/elements/subsystems are comprehensively developed and take into consideration Henri Fayol's Management Function concept which was subsequently modified by Koontz and O'Donnel and Management Processes Knowledge Areas described in PMBOK® published by Project Management Institute (PMI). The information available in the book will also prove valuable for academics/instructors to provide construction management/project management students with in-depth knowledge and guidelines followed in the construction projects and familiarize them with construction management practices.
