As an Architect, this book did not simplify anything for me and is not worth the $66 price. It appeared to be a compilation of various disjointed, vague checklist items that thrown together under one cover. The book was promptly returned for a refund.

There's no way this book should be rated an average of 4.5 stars. I purchased it when I began a full time construction administration job and the supposed tips and useful forms are readily available on line if they're already not at your firm. I don't even believe this book would be useful to an architecture student or a beginning intern. Don't waste your money.

if your a student, then this book is for you. if your a professional or architect, i think this book would be very elementary/ basic for you. my opinion is that this book is expensive...

As a construction professional with almost 30 years in the carpentry trade, I have been on the receiving end of the architect's communiques. In the last ten years of my career I was alternately foreman and superintendent and with a brief stint as site superintendent for a commercial project and as such able to communicate directly with the architect. I also worked briefly for an architect as an intern for the remodel and re-purpose of a large building in an urban setting. In all of these experiences the organization of the project appeared at times to be haphazard at best. The protocol for communication was also not properly established so that I never knew to whom my RFIs and other questions should be addressed. To say that the experiences were frustrating to someone who cared about the job they were doing is an understatement.
This book by Gang Chen should be on the desk and/or shelf of every architectural office as this book serves not only as a primer for the architectural profession but also and more importantly as a checklist that when followed will result in a job that proceeds in good order without either time or money wasted. The management principles and procedures described are critical to the success of a project. The projects that were failures that I was required to contend with failed to follow the steps this book outlines and then goes on to describe.
I appreciate the opportunity to review Building Construction by Gang Chen and I can assure you that the book has a permanent place on the shelf of my library.

Gang Chen has provided an essential link between the professions of architecture, engineering, consulting, construction and the all-important relationship with the owner. Because of multiple agendas and the human tendency to assume rather than communicate and document, many opportunities for conflict arise during the course of projects. Architects have the unique role of managing and blending all these individual talents to interpret and achieve an owner's vision for their projects. As an architect for 4 decades I find this book confirms and reinforces the practices that I have developed during that time. It also identifies those areas of practice that are transitioning with the emerging technology and tools that are available today. Anyone endeavoring to design, build, develop or occupy a building will benefit from using the guide book. A must have book in your professional library.”

This book was not what I was expecting. I was looking for a book with a lot of prose and nice descriptions on the philosophy and techniques of building construction, but what I got was a wonderful surprise: This book is a handbook for the trade. If you are a beginner on building construction, a newcomer to LEED building design an construction. A young architect or engineer this is the book for you. It is a simple, and straightforward repository of the basic information you need to know to be successful on your project. The beauty of this bok is that the author put himself on the shoes of the young construction professional who has a lot of theoretical knowledge obtained at the University or College, but knows nothing of the real deal. This book introduces you to the basic tools, and day to day "domestic" issues which will bother you during the development of the project. If you are new in this business, this book wil be a really nice help for you. If you are not located in the USA, and work on LEED certification, this book will guide you through all the regulations and organizations that are relevant to your project. I whish I had this book when I began in this business!

Having worked in a variety of offices for architects, engineers and construction firms of various sizes, I have become more and more aware over the years that there's a lot of content covered over the course of an education centered around the AEC industry which seems to be overseen by academics, leaving students ill-prepared for actual work in offices. Typically, internships and professional practice courses attempt to remediate this problem, but more often than not, they are insufficient in providing students with the necessary experience to avoid stumbling through their first few years as designers. In this kind of economy - trite as it is - it has become more important for those seeking entry-level positions to exhibit a greater understanding of that which helps an office operate on a fundamental level, beyond design. Realistically, individuals with strong business acuity and project execution ultimately end up more successful than those who have strong design skills and aesthetic sense.

This book essentially covers all the material that fails to be addressed in many professional practice courses in a concise, comprehensive manner. Large portions of the book cover the essentials of compiling construction documents, lists of resources used by offices, submittals, reviews, and many other functions. This book is highly recommended for architecture students in the process of interning, recent graduates, and younger licensed professionals.
