Formats Paperback Ebook

With the delivery of projects becoming ever more challenging because of the current economic and legislative environment, Major Infrastructure Projects provides a detailed overview of the management of large infrastructure projects.

Each chapter contains a topical case study, allowing students to appreciate the bigger picture behind management practices on an international scale. Such cases studies include taking a closer look at London’s Crossrail project and Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai. Have a look at the full list of case studies in the sidebar.  

This title bridges the divide between funding/finance and operational project management for infrastructure projects. The authors have created links between techniques, risk, agile approaches and integrated supply chains, making this a comprehensive reference for all students focusing on project management.

Edward Ochieng: PhD, PGCertHELT, MSc, BSc (Hons), FHEA is a Senior Lecturer in Programme and Project Management at Cranfield University, United Kingdom. Edward has a PhD from Loughborough University. Edward’s research is focused on heavy engineering project management. He has extensive experience and knowledge relating to organisational challenges and solution development for managing large capital and heavy engineering projects. His research interest with people and organisational challenges continues, but has now been complemented by the need for wider understanding of infrastructure systems, project productivity, project value creation, operational effectiveness, capital effectiveness, science-based project management, energy and economy and corporate social responsibility in projects. 

Andrew Price: DSc, PhD, BSc (Civil Eng), FCIOB, FICE, CEng is a Professor of Project Management at Loughborough University, United Kingdom. Andrew has over 30 years’ desig

n, construction and industry-focused research experience including several large collaborative research projects and centres. Andrew has contributed to the development and leadership of five major research centres/consortia (HaCIRIC, IMCRC, CICE, ECI and the Sustainable Urban Environments: Models Metric and Tools Consortium (SUE MoT)). Andrew has been PI/Co-I on 44 collaborative research projects worth over £13.1 million, including HaCIRIC’s research projects that impacted on the provision of timely and effective unscheduled care through three main strands: unscheduled care as a complex system (two projects on stroke care innovation); ED Design (two projects: Open planning for operationally ready acute healthcare infrastructure; and Activity-Acuity-Adaptability-Flow in EDs); and resilience of healthcare infrastructure. 

David Moore: PhD, BSc (Hons), Dip LT, MCIOB: is a Reader in Project Management at Robert Gordon University, United Kingdom. David has been involved in

funded research examining the behaviours of superior performing project managers, and which was rated as tending to international significance by ESPRC. His research activity covers areas ranging from buildability, through sustainable design and the use of solar technologies, to perception and cognition in a construction industry context.
