Description - Introduction to Building Procurement Systems by Jack Masterman

Building procurement systems are the organisational structures within which the desgn and construction of building projects take place. The intention of this guide is to provide construction students and junior professionals with sufficient information about the systems to ensure an awareness of the main methods that are currently available and their principal advantages and drawbacks. The book begins with a description of project implementation, emphasising the procurement aspect of the process. It then examines the needs and requirements of clients, then looks at the concept and evolution of contemporary procurement systems. The middle of the book deals with each of the various categories and the individual systems themselves. The theory and practice of selecting the most appropriate system is then set out, and guidance is given on how to achieve successful project procurement. As a conclusion, future trends in project management are suggested. This clear, well researched and well-structured guide will be invaluable to students and practitioners alike as they work with a wide range of building procurement systems.
