Construction Project Management
A Practical Guide to Field Construction Management
Fifth edition
by S. Keoki Sears

For more than thirty years, Construction Project Management has been considered the preeminent guide to the Critical Path Method (CPM) of project scheduling. It combines a solid foundation in the principles and fundamentals of CPM with particular emphasis on project planning, demonstrated through an example project.

This Fifth edition features a range of improvements:

  • New pedagogical devices improve absorption of the material
  • Updated labor, material, and equipment pricing is incorporated into the text
  • Coverage is enhanced by discussions of contemporary planning and management methods such as Work Breakdown Structures (WBS) and the Earned Value Management System (EVMS)

A highway bridge with a complete cost estimate, including SI units, illustrates each of the principles of project management. Using this basic information and the case studies in the appendix, readers are given project management problems and hands-on project management experience.

The Fifth Edition features include:

  • Complete coverage of planning and scheduling principles that apply to every type of construction project
  • Expanded coverage of production planning
  • Large foldout illustrations conveniently integrated throughout the book
