i discussed the matter with your HOD regarding books that you can purchase.
it was decided that for time being you are not required to buy any books. our class discussions and assignments will be sufficient. if at any time need will arise i will circulate xerox of certain reference pages from books.
please read my blog on construction management of the building 'Guggenheim museum Bilbao' Spain. it will give you an idea how after an cost estimate of building is prepared and approved by the client, then while the work is executed on site, how its cost is adjusted real-time while the work is in progress so that the cost would not go over estimated cost.
happy learning E & QS
