The third edition of Construction Project Management: An Integrated Approach is aimed at students and project managers from different disciplines and provides a broad and practical approach relevant to the whole project life cycle. Long-term client value is at the heart of the integrated approach to deliver best value for money, and in the new edition advances in technology and integrated procurement are covered in two new chapters to take integration to another level.

As the project takes shape and project objectives are defined, the book examines the processes required to assemble the specialist team and deliver the project through definition, planning, design, costing, procurement, construction and handover stages. International case studies have been updated to illustrate concepts and best practice. Further updates include health and safety issues to reflect recent changes in regulations and also developments following the dynamics of the European Union and other global concerns.

The integration of principles such as procurement, design management, team management, productivity, BIM, building contracts, health and safety, sustainability and value and risk management have currency for project management as a whole, but the book shows how they are adapted to suit the needs of construction and civil engineering projects, without detracting from project management principles.

This book is suitable for young practitioners, undergraduate courses in construction disciplines and postgraduate courses which provide project management skills for those adding to their key discipline or managing on behalf of the client.
