About This Book

This Handbook provides the knowledge needed to design and deploy proactive construction project procurement and delivery systems based on essentials while addressing emerging construction industry imperatives in order to boost overall performance.

Section 1 of the Handbook provides an overview, while Section 2 provides the fundamentals with fresh insights into the building blocks and trends in performance-linked procurement and delivery, including procurement strategies and commercial priorities, project briefs and management plans, design management, stakeholder management, risk management, ethics and professionalism, team building, information and knowledge management, digital aids, conflict, claims and dispute management, collaborative contracting, relationship-based teamworking and linking to built asset management.

Section 3 explores and expands on specific trends, including sub-contractor selection, Building Information Modelling (BIM) in project cost management; off-site and modern methods of construction; 4IR/5IR technologies; and constructing for the circular economy, supply chain resilience and social value imperatives in this domain.

While other books describe standard processes or focus on specific strategies such as design and build, target cost contracting or integrated project delivery, this Handbook presents the fundamentals of such processes and protocols together with invited specialist insights into growing trends and imperatives in holistic procurement and delivery.

Those who could benefit from this Handbook include academics, researchers, postgraduate students, policy makers and administrators, managers in both public and private sectors involved with planning and overseeing construction project procurement and/or delivery and undergraduates looking for a balanced introduction and useful insights into what is critical to the success of construction projects, organisations and the industry itself.
