Abstract : A definition of construction management may be paraphrased as a process of integrating planning, design, and construction to accomplish the basic requirements of an owner. Due to the magnitude, duration, and number of interacting organizations that can be involved in the construction process, an effective form of project control must exist if the construction of the facility is to be on schedule, within budget, and in accordance with the established specifications. The ability of the construction manager to carry out these duties requires much more than just good engineering. Construction management requires many of the same managerial skills and organization needed to run a large manufacturing company. A good staff of individuals specializing in many different areas as well as sound management is essential. This paper is intended to examine some of the management requirements of construction supervision. Much of the data will be extracted from the construction of nuclear power plants. However, the material is applicable to all types of construction. The more complex and sizable the project, the more important good construction management becomes.
