In the seaside town of Lighthouse Cove in northern California, everyone knows the best man for the job is actually a woman—contractor Shannon Hammer. But while her home-renovation and repair business is booming, her love life needs work. On a blind date with real estate agent Jerry Saxton, Shannon has to whip out a pair of pliers to keep Jerry from getting too hands on.

But as they get closer to prying out the murderer’s identity, Shannon is viciously attacked. Now she’ll have to nail down the truth—or end up in permanent foreclosure...

A single mistake, whether made during the bidding process or when executing a construction project, can potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars or more. Of course, the sooner mistakes are caught, the less costly they become. Based on the authors’ combined experience working on projects large and small, Construction Management: Subcontractor Scopes of Work delineates how project teams can avoid mistakes and run projects more intelligently, effectively, and efficiently. This book’s concentration on the nuts and bolts of a construction project, rather than on basic philosophies and concepts, sets it apart. It focuses not on the mechanics of writing subcontract scopes of work, but on why they are written the way they are. Designed by contractors for contractors, this is not a book of simple checklists describing how to address various issues, but a compilation of practical examples and lessons learned to form a knowledge base that can be applied to any project. This knowledge can be used to prepare bid documents that clearly define the roles of the various subcontractors, ensuring the full scope of the project is covered without redundancy or duplication. Provides invaluable training while minimizing lost productivity! Auxiliary multiple choice tests and answer keys are available for download from the CRC website. Using this feature, executives will spend less time preparing and presenting in-house seminars, employees can study when they want and take the tests at opportune times. With this book and downloadable tests, the productivity lost due to training is reduced tremendously. Disagreements over the scope of work required of a general contractor and/or trade subcontractors that ultimately end in construction disputes plague the construction industry. This book elucidates problematic aspects of construction projects while also providing insight into the different perspectives of the various project team members. It delivers helpful information that prevents gaps in subcontract coverage and scope disagreements and reduces potential construction disputes.
