Proven construction administration techniques for the civil engineer—from pre-construction to closeout of land development projects

The complexity of modern land development requires the civil engineer to play an integral role in working with both the owner and contractor to meet schedule and budget requirements. The engineer’s role is emphasized with the prevalence of design-build contracts and necessitated by current environmental regulations.  Construction Practices for Land Development: A Field Guide for Civil Engineers builds on the design topics included in Land Development Handbook as a project progresses from design into the construction phase. In addition to traditional responsibilities such as RFI responses and shop drawing review, the civil engineer is responsible for evolving the design throughout permitting and construction to address site conditions, operations, and regulatory requirements.  

This hands-on civil engineering guide offers explanations of:
Project delivery methods
Pre-construction administration
Construction cost estimates
Construction stakeout surveys
Construction administration
Advanced construction roles
Construction techniques
Construction closeout
Construction equipment
