During construction development, a number of equipment items and large quantities of bulk and industrialized materials in various trades are used for excavating, laying foundations, erecting structures, roofing, installing various building services, executing finishes, etc. Thus, site operations management is the crucial process of directing, coordinating, monitoring and controlling the production and physical implementation of the project. This chapter of the book limits the discussion to the planning and control processes of a few main areas, namely site equipment, quality, and safety.
