More About the Author

I am an architect and my experience of working in practice eventually took me down a research route, which resulted in a PhD and then a full time position in the university sector. I try to retain this practical knowledge in my writing. My books are written for students studying a wide range of built environment programmes and span two inter-related areas; architectural (design) management and architectural (construction) technology. Some of my books have resulted from research projects, some from the frustration of not being able to find anything suitable for my students to read, and some from daring to think 'What if ..?'

Stephen Emmitt

Product Description


′A well–written, logically structured and well referenced text ….[it] represents the first serious attempt to explore communication within the industry’s specific context, and I would commend it as a robust introductory text for students, academics and practitioners with an interest in communication dynamics’. Andrew RJ Dainty, CM& E Volume 22, issue 2.

From the Back Cover

The construction industry is not a homogeneous one; it is characterised by its fragmented, complex and temporary project arrangements. Communicating the design intent – from initial briefing through to the actual building on site – is vital to the success of any construction project, yet a constant challenge for all concerned. No matter how thorough the briefing, how clear the architect’s drawings, or how effective the project management, problems will always arise and may lead to costly disputes if not resolved quickly and effectively. Most of the problems can be traced back to a failure to communicate clearly. This book brings together the main management and communication issues that influence the success of construction projects. The authors investigate communication issues across physical, organisational and cultural barriers and present clear guidance and practical advice. Accessible to all participants in the construction process Provides clear explanations of complex issues, helping to make communication more productive Checklists and case studies offer practical guidance ∼

First Sentence
The construction industry is not a homogeneous industry, it is made up of many diverse and competing organisations and professional partnerships, the majority of whom are brought together for one, bespoke project, before transferring to the next. Read the first page
