Title

The History of Construction Management

Abstract

Construction Management's origins can be traced to several forerunners, and its development, although short, has seen many changes of both practice and attitude. Its cost saving and quality management methods have been praised by most users but its inroads into the construction market has caused controversy among those concerned with holding their share of the market. Experience has made great strides toward uniform understanding of CM practices and qualifications and is still progressing in that direction. This paper traces some of the highlights in CM's development.
