The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.

The NEC compared and contrasted will assist all levels of professionals involved in procurement in the construction industry to make informed choices and give balanced advice when deciding which contract to use for a particular project. This authoritative book examines professional services contracts and construction contracts, as well as contractual arrangements for partnering. Building and engineering sectors of the construction industry are covered, as well as the possibility of procuring projects outside the UK. This book demonstrates that modern construction contracts can facilitate project management, as well as define legal relationships and that efficient procurement of complex projects demands a proactive, not a reactive, approach.

UNIQUE FEATURES - Designed to be used as a desk top manual - Describes the main features of the contracts in the NEC family - Includes guidance on which NEC contract is appropriate for a particular project and how to prepare it - Useful for those who need more information about the NEC and its philosophy - Includes exercises at the end of several chapters to stimulate discussions about the many factors that need to be considered in choosing the right NEC contract BACKGROUND INFORMATION The last decades of the twentieth century saw huge changes in construction in the UK, particularly in procurement methods and contract strategy. In this book the author describes these changes as a construction reformation and suggests that the advent of the NEC played an important part in promoting those changes. Since its introduction to the construction sector in 1991, the NEC has been highly recommended in the Latham Report and more recently by the Office of Government Commerce and is now widely used on many small and large projects in the UK and worldwide. ENSURING PROJECT OBJECTIVES In this guide, Bill Weddell, a long standing member of the NEC Panel and a highly respected consultant and trainer on the NEC utilises his skills and wide knowledge of the NEC to provide new and existing users with guidance on how to select and implement NEC contracts to suit differing project needs and objectives. ACCURATE CONTRACT STRATEGIES This guide explains in a concise and practical manner how to decide on the appropriate contract strategy for any given project and how to prepare the contract document for each type of NEC contract. It describes each of the documents and explains the selection methods for the various options and how these are used to produce the contract document. The book also clarifies some of the distinguishing features of the NEC contracts in contrast to the more traditional standard forms and explains how the management procedures in each contract can be used to achieve the Employer's objectives by effective control of time, cost and quality. THE READERSHIP This guide is a valuable tool for anybody involved in the NEC supply chain including clients, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, project managers, quantity surveyors, adjudicators and service suppliers - across the complete spectrum of construction activity. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Bill Weddell was on the original NEC Working Group and drafting team and has been involved in the later development of the NEC family of contracts up to the publication of NEC3. He has long experience of both design and construction of major civil engineering works including highways, bridges, docks and harbours, tunnels and sea defence works. He was Head of Contracts for a firm of consulting engineers and is now a contract consultant and runs training courses on the NEC.

This is a comprehensive review of the issues that readers need to be aware of when negotiating the minefield of professional services contracts in the construction industry. It is practical and accessible in its approach, and addresses professional obligations when engaged under such agreements. It advises on the principle areas of consultancy risk and makes reference to some of the standard conditions produced by professional bodies. This book is an essential reference for consultants, project managers, architects as well as their legal advisors and insurers, enabling them to better understand and negotiate the contracts prepared by the client side of the industry for their professional services. It covers the contracts themselves and related legal issues and principles and is written in a way that will be accessible to nonlegally trained readers. Uniquely the book provides an understanding of the risks, both legal and commercial, inherent in these types of professional appointments and therefore helps the reader to manage those risks. Another key feature is that it provides a supporting commentary on the 'benchmark' professional service agreements, including the RIBA, ACE and RICS appointments, and explains the differences. The revised version will now also cover the NEC3 PSC contract.
