REVIEW:
I have experience in residential construction having been the general contractor / manager overseeing construction within a family owned homebuilding business. In my experience, the most critical duty of a residential project manager is the ability to envision and plan how the project will be successfully completed, and then to execute that plan in an efficient manner. This means understanding the challenges one will face and being equipped to visualize the construction process so that you can always remain a few steps ahead, anticipating and correcting any problems before they truly become problems.

Residential Construction Management provides the project manager with the necessary tools to think through the challenges of the project from beginning to end and to evaluate and control the project as it progresses in order to be successful. It is thorough in its treatment of all aspects of the residential construction process from the very initial stages of securing a project to the final closing and review.

I not only have experience in residential construction, but I also am a CPA and found that the areas of the book that deal with cost controls (i.e. budgeting, job costing, reporting, etc.) were well written and stressed the importance of sound financial management as an integral part of the project manager's duties.

This is a very helpful book for the residential construction project manager that will guide them through the complexities of the homebuilding process. I would recommend this book to a new project manager wanting to understand each component of construction management and also to the more experienced builder who needs a step-by-step guide on how to better plan, execute and manage their projects.
