Member discounts for new CIOB codes of practice

16 April 2018

The CIOB has released new versions of two of its codes of practice. A new best practice guide sets a new standard for time management in building and civil engineering projects and also newly published is the Code of Estimating Practice.

First published in 2010, the Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Major Projects was an integral part of the CIOB’s strategy to provide standards, education, training and accreditation in time management.

The latest edition, published on 26 February emphasises dynamic, strategic time modelling as the way to manage time and cost in major projects.

“On major projects the failure strategically to manage time so often proves disastrous, not just for the contractor but also for the client, its consultants, and for the rest of the supply chain,” said Keith Pickavance, author and past president of the CIOB.

“This Guide is a step-by-step illustration of how the parties can work collaboratively to meet this challenge using traditional project procurement routes or the most advanced BIM, from the adoption of a workable time-management strategy through to the day-to-day detail of risk management, using a predictive time model.”

The publication includes new materials, such as a chapter distinguishing the principal features of the dynamic time model and its development throughout the life of a project, from inception to completion.

It also includes new appendices covering matters such as complexity in construction and engineering projects, productivity guides and a number of case studies. 

The new version of Code of Estimating Practice published on 9 March is co-authored by CIOB past president Roger Flanagan from Reading University.
