Next the book looks at such on-the-job responsibilities as surveys, ground investigations, cost estimates, work schedules, letters of intent, etc. The final section goes over everything readers need to know about dealing with a building contract in progress, informing them about advance payments, insurance, site inspections, contractor disputes, terminations, final certificates, and more.</p> <ul> <li>Details the entire process of managing a construction project, including dealing with clients, the design process, running a construction project, and more</li> <li>Highlights what the construction professionals do in their positions</li> <li>Shows how principles of construction management are applied in practice</li> <li>Written in a reader-friendly and accessible way</li> </ul> <p><i>Professional Practice for Architects and Project Managers</i> is an excellent resource for architects and other construction professionals such as contract administrators, project managers, quantity surveyors, and contractors.</p>
