  • Abstract:

    A conceptual framework for project management in construction is proposed. It comprises two distinct phases. The first is strategic, being concerned with client objectives, project description and organization. The second is concerned with the execution of basic construction tasks. The essential nature of these concepts and of the relationships between them is described. The need to regard projects as hierarchies is discussed. The paper concludes that within construction projects, management, design and construction strategies must be matched and then given expression in clearly defined tasks. Creating and maintaining that consistent framework is project management.
