About this book

Introduction

This book adopts a methodical approach to the process of planning and control exercised by the contractor during the pre-tender, pre-contract and construction phases of projects through the application of various planning techniques to a number of case studies in both building and civil engineering.

To develop a fundamental understanding of the factors which influence the successful management of time on projects, the book explores the implications of new forces that are changing the way the construction industry operates, including the 'Latham' culture and new health and safety legislation such as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.

A number of planning applications are explained, including linked bar charts, networks and precedence diagrams, together with techniques used for repetitive projects, such as line of balance and time-chainage diagrams. The text also incorporates examples of contract budgetary control and cost-value reconciliation procedures.
