"While reading Construction Project Management, I recalled the days early in my career as an architect/engineer. The description of weekly meetings and topics covered, estimates put together first by the architect on a square foot basis and the more detailed estimates of the general and subcontractors, and checking and coordination of shop drawings all rang true to my memory of how things actually happened on the job." - William W. Campbell, Montgomery College (retired)
