Miguel Soto, a highly educated engineer, retired project manager, educator, writer and author, has completed his new book “Project Information Manager, Vol. 1”: a helpful guide for managers to learn the ins-and-outs of the field. This book goes through each preconstruction-phase's step, helping the reader through the author’s work experiences. Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Miguel Soto’s insightful manual is the perfect book for anyone in the preconstruction phase management! This work depicts projects as cyclic and exact processes, and teaches the reader the standard tools and methods to run a project from concept to close out. “Project Information, Volume 1: Preconstruction Phase” is a practical reference manual describing planning, conceptualization, design and engineering activities in detail. The reader learns how to manage the entire phase going through the chronological steps of a typical design-development phase. Junior managers become experts in project management, following the steps described in the paragraphs, sections, and chapters. The process starts when users and owners find a need for a project. The book goes over the procurement phase for a project-management team, PMT, at that time. The book describes in depth how a need of a project is born, explaining tools and procedures to translate users’ desires and owners’ visions into a project’s solution summary. The solution is the base for a project hierarchical planning, PHP, which finally serves to define a project’s fundamental criteria. Later, owners and PMT review and approve the criteria, advancing to procure, vetting an architectural and engineering, A&E, team retained for the design-development stages of the preconstruction phase and the schematic, conceptual, and final design package. The book explains the procurement processes for three contract modes—turnkey, design-build, and design-bid-build. The reader studies these three processes even though, in practice, owners select only one mode, which defines the design development. The book describes in detail the design-development process up until the design package translates into a final bid package. The book describes how managers can develop their own project-management procedure, PMP, using guidelines, flowchart samples, and graphics throughout the book, which they can modify on other projects.
