This handbook addresses problems facing the engineer when preparing to build, both during the contract bidding phase and after a contract has been concluded. It offers clear guidelines for planning the resources and machinery on site, as well as the safe positioning of roads, cranes, storage and temporary buildings. Site planning activities are presented here in logical sequence, offering an efficient and safe design of the construction site and of the temporary works. The book describes the process of engineering preparation of on-site construction works in all phases of the construction life-cycle, from the design phase - preparing the financial plan and procurement scheme for the owner before tendering the contract; the tendering phase; and after bid completion. A list of procedures is presented for planning the construction site in order to simplify the engineer’s work of site and temporary works planning. The Engineer’s Manual of Construction Site Planning is for all those involved in the planning of construction sites, construction managers, construction engineers and quantity surveyors, as well as for students in civil engineering and construction.

Airfield Safety and Capacity Improvements: Case Studies on Successful Projects presents six case studies focused on the planning, engineering, and management of major construction projects at active airports. The construction or reconstruction of runways, aprons, ramps, or terminals while an airport is open for regular operations poses complex challenges, such as access to and from airport operating areas, logistics, staging, short-term lighting and signage, airline-airport communications, and staging and planning for short-term closures of taxiways and taxi lanes. Each case study describes the requirements, objectives, challenges, methodologies, and lessons learned from a recent project, offering unique insights into how complex projects can be managed successfully. Topics include the following: New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport runway design and construction; Seattle-Tacoma International Airport reconstruction of runway 16L-34R; George Bush Intercontinental Airport rehabilitation of runway 09-27; John F.Kennedy International Airport reconstruction of runway 13R-31L; Los Angeles International Airport coordinated logistics management; and Denver International Airport off-peak construction. These case studies are essential reading for those involved in planning, designing, and constructing capital improvements to airport facilities, including transportation and aviation engineers, construction engineers and project managers, and managers with airport authorities.

This excellent book systematically identifies the issues surrounding the effective linking of project management techniques and engineering applications. It is not a technical manual, nor is it procedure-led. Instead, it encourages creative learning of project engineering methodology that can be applied and modified in different situations. In short, it offers a distillation of practical ‘on-the job’ experience to help project engineers perform more effectively. While this book specifically addresses process plants, the principles are applicable to other types of engineering project where multidisciplinary engineering skills are required, such as power plant and general factory construction. It focuses on the technical aspects, which typically influence the configuration of the plant as a whole, on the interface between the various disciplines involved, and the way in which work is done – the issues central to the co-ordination of the overall engineering effort. It develops an awareness of relationships with other parties – clients, suppliers, package contractors, and construction managers – and of how the structure and management of these relationships impact directly on the performance of the project engineer. Readers will welcome the author’s straightforward approach in tackling sensitive issues head on.
