    Handbook for Construction Planning and Scheduling

    The aim of this handbook is therefore to present the key issues of planning and
    scheduling in a clear, concise and practical way in a readily acceptable format
    whereby individual chapters and sections can be accessed and read in isolation to

    provide a guide to good practice. Our objective was to provide a text to accom-
    pany learning, a reference document which, supported by web-based informa-
    tion, would provide information on the background to planning and scheduling

    together with guidance on best practice and practical methods for the application
    of construction planning and scheduling on different types of construction work.
    In addition to revisiting the basic elements of planning and scheduling, we have
    included chapters on current topics that are demanding consideration by all those
    within the construction industry. These include planning for sustainability, waste,
    health and safety and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

    The book is divided into four sections.
    The first section looks at planning and scheduling within the construction
    context. It provides both an outline of the evolution of planning and scheduling
    and a review of the basics: who plans, when and why. We consider the overall
    project cycle and then explore what the construction planner actually does and
    how the form of procurement adopted by the client impacts both the type of
    planning undertaken and when planning takes place. We complete the first section
    by looking at different construction management schools of thought and how
    these approaches influence how the managers of construction organisations plan,
    monitor and control construction projects.
