Review quote

"Construction Methods and Management by Nunnally is the only text I have found that comprehensively covers the methods and practices of the construction industry. The chapters are written in such a way that they are essentially independent and can be taught in any order the instructor wishes." - John Wiggins, New Jersey Institute of Technologyshow more
