Construction Cost Management

In the last decade, following the Latham and Egan reports, there have been many significant changes in the role of the construction cost manager. Keith Potts examines the key issues and best practice in the cost management of construction projects under traditional contracts and new methodologies. All stages within the life cycle of a project are considered from pre-contract to tendering and post-contract.


Worked examples, legal cases and over 65 project case studies are used to illustrate the practical application of the theory, where appropriate. Extensive references are captured, including the UK government’s Constructing Excellence programme and the National Audit Reports, in order to further develop an understanding of the subject. Reference is made to major projects such as the Scottish Parliament Building, Wembley Stadium and BAA’s Heathrow Terminal 5.


Aimed at students of Surveying and Construction Management programmes, this book uniquely embraces cost management in both the building and civil engineering sectors in the UK and overseas and should thus prove useful to practitioners. Seminar questions are included at the end of each chapter with additional links to over 100 project case studies in order to reinforce the learning experience.


Keith Potts is Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering and the Built Environment at the University of Wolverhampton. He is a RICS external examiner in Quantity Surveying, and Award Leader of the RICS-accredited MSc in Construction Project Management.
