Consulting engineer El-Reedy offers step-by-step guidance to successful construction project management for engineers. While most of his sources are oil and gas projects, the book is intended to be universal and appropriate for all engineering disciplines. The author covers the first principles of project management from initiation and feasibility studies through execution and commissioning and startup. Topics include: economic and project risk management, time planning, resource and cost management, design, quality issues, and bidding, tenders, and contracts. He also addresses objectives and goals from the perspectives of both project managers and team members. In addition to being clearly written, the book is formatted for quick reference and includes numerous charts and illustrations.
