Pressestimmen

"In summing up, the Construction Management in Practice embodies the results of intensive research by the authors which, in my opinion, is accurate, informative, brief, and forceful -- for the success of the construction management process. Finally, this book is strongly recommended for both, construction management students and practitioners." (Construction Manager, July 2002) "Providing readers with an up to date and balanced view of the industry...the comprehensive nature of the text provides a splendid response to the perennial question a what exactly do construction mangaers do?a The authors are to be commended on the breadth of their coverage of the financial aspects of construction management, which includes discussion on value management, risk management and lifecycle costing. Both management and financial fields are treated rigorously and in depth ... It is particularly heartening to see a strong emphasis given to quantitative decision making and operational research." (Construction Management & Economics, Vol 20/5 5 July 2003)
