e-Business in Construction

e-Business in ConstructionEdited by my friends Professor Chimay Anumba and Dr Kirti Ruikar, e-Business in Construction is a brand new hardback book, just published by Blackwells (available in the US next month and in Australia from September), that seeks to provide definitive guidance for students, researchers and practitioners on the key issues in electronic commerce from a construction perspective.

The volume includes a chapter (Ch. 6) written by me on “The Role of Extranets in Construction e-Business”, and includes some short case studies based on work undertaken at [my employer] BIW – my third such contribution to an edited work. Fellow contributors (including academics from the USA, UK and Hong Kong, and fellow-NCCTP activist Tim Cole of Causeway) have covered topics including e-Hubs, trust, legal issues, knowledge management, and industry case studies (Tim’s chapter).
