Summary

Construction Methods and Management, 8/e, is designed to guide construction engineers and managers in planning, estimating, and directing construction operations safely and effectively. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the text integrates major construction management topics with an explanation of the methods of heavy/highway and building construction. It incorporates both customary U.S. units and metric (SI) units and is the only text to present concrete formwork design equations and procedures using both measurement systems.

This edition features information on the latest developments in soil excavation, asphalt paving, and earthmoving equipment.

"Construction Methods and Management by Nunnally is the only text I have found that comprehensively covers the methods and practices of the construction industry. The chapters are written in such a way that they are essentially independent and can be taught in any order the instructor wishes." - John Wiggins, New Jersey Institute of Technology

For courses in Introduction to Construction, Construction Engineering I, Construction Management I, Building Construction.

This textbook is great because it touches on the basics of earthwork and excavation and gets you ready for courses in estimating, scheduling and cost control. This edition features information on the latest developments in soil excavation, asphalt paving, and earthmoving equipment. I enjoyed learning from this textbook; the questions make you analyze construction problems from many different angles. I would recommend this textbook for potential professional engineers getting ready to take the professional engineer's exam.
