Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development

Price: 47.50

In 1991 the Chartered Institute of Building initiated a multi-institute task force and a Code of Practice for Project Management was published in 1992, with a second edition in 1996. Like previous editions, this third edition has been substantially revised to embody the results of intensive consultation between the CIOB and representatives of the professional bodies concerned with construction and development.
The Code is divided into two sections:
1. The first covers eight stages associated with projects from inception to completion, each one well supported with diagrams, flowcharts and checklists
2. The second section contains a project handbook, complete with guidance documentation and checklists.
The third edition features new guidance on:
  • project planning
  • EU procurement procedures
  • performance management plan
  • partnering
  • project risk assessment
  • environmental impact assessment
  • procurement options and value for money framework.

Effective project management involves the assessment and management of risk, and this is a strong theme throughout the Code.
The Code of Practice provides an authoritative guide to the principles and practice of construction project management. It will be a key reference source for clients, contractors and professionals, irrespective of the size and nature of the project. Much of the information is also relevant to project managers in other commercial spheres.
