About this book


This book covers a practical approach to contract planning based on a series of live building and civil engineering projects in which the author has been directly involved. Aimed directly at CI0B and Building and Surveying students, the book covers all stages of the contract process from pre-contract through to final completion, and uses the principles and applications of bar charts, line of balance techniques, precedence diagrams and network analysis. The main topics are: the planning process; development of bar charts for budgets and sequence studies; principles and uses of line of balance techniques; network analysis; precedence diagram relationships; project planning by computer. Each chapter includes exercises.
