Construction Superintendents: Essential Skills for the Next Generation is the first college-level textbook designed to prepare you to take on a site supervisor role on a complex jobsite. The book covers the responsibilities of superintendents in relation to the jobsite project management team, the project owners, designers, and municipal services. The book outlines the development of the superintendent and his or her role and responsibilities in twenty-first century construction projects. Using examples and case studies of cutting-edge jobsite practices from the use of computer applications to leadership and capital development, this book lays out all the functions of a modern site superintendent in an easy-to-understand format. The book includes:








coverage of the full spectrum of tasks and skills required from the pre-construction phase, through start-up, operation and close-out, plus advanced topics for those serious about leading the field







real-world case studies, forms, and documentation stored on a companion website







chapter summaries, review questions, and exercises to aid both teaching and learning.





This book fills in the long-standing need for an academic textbook designed as an applied instructional resource suitable for university and college students enrolled in construction management and construction engineering programmes.
