About this series
The aim of this book series is to provide a platform to build and consolidate a rigorous and significant repository of academic, practice and research publications that contribute to further knowledge relating to management in the built environment. Its objectives are to:
- Disseminate new and contemporary knowledge relating to research and practice in the built environment
- Promote synergy across different research and practice domains in the built environment and
- Advance cutting-edge research and best practice in the built environment
The scope of this book series is not limited to “management” issues per se because this then begs the question of what exactly are we managing in the built environment. While the primary focus is on management issues in the building and construction industry, its scope has been extended upstream to the design management phase and downstream to the post-occupancy facilities management phase. Management in the built environment also involves other closely allied disciplines in the areas of economics, environment, legal and technology. Hence, the starting point of this book series lies with project management, extends into construction and ends with facilities management. In between this spectrum, there are also other management-related issues that are allied with or relevant to the built environment. These can include, for example cost management, disaster management, contract management and management of technology.
This book series serves to engage and encourage the generation of new knowledge in these areas and to offer a publishing platform within which different strands of management in the built environment can be positioned to promote synergistic collaboration at their interfaces. This book series also provides a platform for other authors to benchmark their thoughts to identify innovative ideas that they can further build on to further advance cutting-edge research and best practice in the built environment.
