Construction Project Monitoring and Evaluation : An Integrated Approach Hardback
by Callistus Tengan, Clinton (University of Johannesburg, South Africa) Aigbavboa, Wellington Didibhuku (University of Johannesburg, South Africa) Thwala
Part of the Routledge Research Collections for Construction in Developing Countries series
This book will provide readers with an in-depth theoretical awareness and practical guidance on the implementation of an effective monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system to ensure construction projects meet approved quality, cost, time and social sustainability objectives. The authors discuss the drivers, challenges, determinants and benefits of effective M&E implementation together with the theories and models underpinning construction project M&E practices.
Further, a comparative overview of M&E practices in developed and developing countries is presented to elucidate the best practices.
The book first conceptualizes M&E as a five-factor model comprising stakeholder involvement, budgetary allocation and logistics, technical capacity and training, leadership, and communication.
It then presents an M&E case study on the Ghanaian construction industry before expanding on the idea of M&E systems as an effective tool for project performance and in optimizing a project's contribution to society and the environment. The book further provides guidance on M&E practice for construction project managers, investors, professionals, researchers and other stakeholders and is therefore of interest to those in architecture, construction engineering, planning, project management and development studies.
