Project Management for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat

  • James J. O’Brien


Time, cost, and quality are the three main ingredients that determine the successful completion of a construction project. The total time and final cost are not known until the project is substantially completed. Yet, the owner must make innumerable decisions related to interdependent design and construction problems. At every decision-making point, the owner’s primary concern is whether a decision will meet the main objectives of completing the project within the specified time and within budget. The challenge for the owner, then, is to employ effectively as management tools those principles and techniques that minimize the risk of not meeting those objectives.
