We know you’re busy and don’t have too much spare time in your day. But, this eBook is written in an informative way with tangible actions and takeaways that you can implement, immediately.
THIS YEAR’S CIVIL CONSTRUCTION BLUEPRINT.
The book kicks off with the importance of a good Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) and the different roles usually involved in a project. We talk about cost right up front, on the first page because overspending can cut projects short, often before they’re complete.
The conversation moves into the two things that clients are most interested in and how you, the civil contractor, can guarantee their satisfaction. Given the complexity and wide range of tasks you’re responsible for, this isn’t always easy. Again, this brings us back to the vital role of the blueprint.
Moving through the book, you’ll read about the inevitability of human error, project management requirements and skills, working with other stakeholders and project sign-off.
The essential components of project management are a key focus in this eBook. This includes details about the project team, safety precautions and risk management, management tools available, contract administration and compliance. We also touch on arranging and managing tasks, ISO Certification, and how to hand over the project over with complete confidence.
There’s one theme that brings it all together and it’s what we all want. Doing it right the first time.
