Project Management Guidelines for Construction Projects

Transit agencies undertaking construction projects for the first time need handy tools for better project management and construction management to ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget and meet project specifications. This project will develop and publish a project management and construction management handbook that provides guidance on engineering design, construction management, cost and schedule estimation, quality assurance and quality control, and project management controls. The handbook is intended for use primarily by public transportation agencies with little or no experience in managing construction projects. In addition, the project management guidelines will be packaged as interactive CD-ROM for use by managers, planners, and engineers. Placing the guidelines on an interactive CD-ROM will make the guidelines easier to use in individual self-study situations and provide a handy computerized reference for project managers.
