Essentials of Construction Planning and Scheduling is a practical handbook on the planning of construction projects, from tender through to project completion. The book provides essential tools to plan a project and communicate that plan to the whole project team to enable all team members to see what should be happening at every stage of a project.

Coverage includes: 

  • How to review project information to break the works down to areas and individual tasks, estimate durations, and develop the sequence
  • Good practice in preparing and managing a contract programme
  • Ways of supplementing the programme to effectively communicate a plan to the whole project team
  • Planning the logistics that are key to supporting delivery, and assessing the number of cranes and hoists required to deliver the plan
  • How to monitor the plan, make progress assessments, and use that knowledge to deliver the programme
  • How the site team can effectively manage change, delay and disruption.
Based on over 40 years’ professional experience in this area, Essentials of Construction Planning and Scheduling is a hands-on and engaging handbook with colour diagrams and real-life examples throughout.
