Construction Management Introduction Construction Management is the organization, coordination; planning and the process of overseeing a building project from the start of that project to the end. Construction management is carried out by managers who supervise building projects and all the work involved so as to achieve a client's goal or meet his expectation.

Morals vs. Ethics Morals and ethics are often thought of as interchangeable terms, and both can be applied in various situations. Morals are ultimately the “groundwork” for ethics. However, the two nouns have a distinct meaning. Morals are internal principles that a person focuses upon when deciding between right or wrong conduct.

Almost everyone agrees that it is good to be ethical; this is an easy affirmation. It is much more difficult, though, when ethics is in direct opposition to success. This dichotomy- between ethics and success- will no doubt confront an engineer during a professional career of any substantial length. Can you say that you would rather be a good man than rich? Or popular?
Safety and Ethics In everyday society, there has always been ethics. Ethic’s isn’t a new topic, and people have had thoughts or something to say about it for years. However, not everyone stops to realize that many everyday ethical decisions have to do with safety in the workplace or even at home. These ethical, safety decisions can be made on a morning walk, the drive to work, or even at a workplace while running a machine. We as a society haven’t stopped to correlate the two until just recently
Integrity is a trait important in and outside of the field of engineering. While it can refer to a state of being sound, or strong, such as in construction, it also refers to being sound and whole as a person. Integrity has to do with the quality of execution of one’s moral and ethical codes, and largely to do with their power of leadership. With integrity a person can ensure their success in both their personal and work lives, and also ensure public safety in the practice of civil engineering.

As we all know, ethics play a major role in the construction industry. Many contractors and other construction related companies today are being judged not only on their quality of work, but by their professional reputation as well. Owners are coming to the conclusion that although they may not provide the absolute lowest price, the more professionally rated contractors provide a better experience throughout the construction process. Ethics are at the root of a construction company’s reputation.
a professional civil engineering in the manufacturing industry. Furthermore, there are some key works that engineers doing in our daily life. Moreover, this article will introduce how civil engineers do for their professional. And what kind of ethics that engineers require to be respect. In addition, how do they practice to solve issues to avoid failure generate again. This report will shows the roles of engineers do in manufacturing industry and what kind of works that they need to complete. Base
Briefing Paper: Construction and Demolition Waste Construction and demolition waste (CDW) is a significant issue in New Zealand. Teo and Loosemore (2001) maintain: “Levels of waste within the construction industry need to be reduced for environmental and economic reasons. Changing people's wasteful behaviour can make a significant contribution” (pp.741). This paper defines the CDW issue, significant stakeholders, relevant ethical theories and costs. CDW has increased as construction volumes have risen
