The management of construction projects is a wide ranging and challenging discipline in an increasingly international industry, facing continual challenges and demands for improvements in safety, in quality and cost control, and in the avoidance of contractual disputes. Construction Management grew out of a Leonardo da Vinci project to develop a series of Common Learning Outcomes for European Managers in Construction. Financed by the European Union, the project aimed to develop a library of basic materials for developing construction management skills for use in a pan-European context. Focused exclusively on the management of the construction phase of a building project from the contractor’s point of view, Construction Management covers the complete range of topics of which mastery is required by the construction management professional for the effective delivery of new construction projects. With the continued internationalisation of the construction industry, Construction Management will be required reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students across Europe.

Architecture and the Sites of History is an unusual and important book, presenting the complex nature of the history of buildings and cities. It proposes a radical historical agenda based on political and intellectual concerns, showing that the contradictory character of architecture and cities can be grasped only through the confrontation of different interpretations. Architecture is presented here as an active process, inviting the reader to puzzle over its content and meaning. The essays presented in this book, specially commissioned from sixteen different authors, cover a diverse range of subjects. Some historical, some theoretical; they explore architectural culture and everyday culture from the classical ancient world to today's deconstructivism.

This book explains the contemporary management processes and strategies employed by practising professionals during the running of construction projects. It takes its framework from the RIBA Plan of Work and the editors have successfully used this framework to evaluate the architect's role at each stage of the construction process. The book presents construction as an interactive activity where the best skills of designers, constructors, and facility managers are employed to maximise user delight and function, and enhance the overall quality of the built environment. The editors have integrated the best expertise drawn from the academic world and have commissioned authors from many countries. Academics and practitioners have been hamessed together to produce chapters on each step in the Plan of Work: these chapters contain the very best theoretical analysis provided by the academic partner with case illustrations supplied by the practitioner. This combination of theory and practice provides ideas and applications to all steps in the architect's role.
