Continuous Cost Improvement in Construction: Theory and Practice aims to provide students and practitioners with an all-inclusive understanding of strategies for adopting continuous improvement in construction cost management. This book addresses continuous improvement practices from the perspective of cost management and applies case study examples to question the readers’ perspective of continuous cost improvement strategies in the project lifecycle. Continuous cost improvement practices in managing the cost of minor, major, and mega projects are all connected with decision-making tools for devising strategies for choosing the approaches for mitigating the effect of cost overruns in construction projects. Continuous cost improvement should be taught as part of modern methods and processes of construction in further and higher education institutions. This book will be key reading for all advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Construction Project Management, Building and Quantity Surveying. Professionals in all aspects of the AEC industry will also gain greatly from engaging with the key concepts of continuous cost improvement throughout this book.
