In 2002, the Institute began publishing industry-specific, application-area extensions to its A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide). The Construction Extension first appeared in 2003 and has been updated every time the mother volume has. With this edition the Extension eliminates specific processes and references that become obsolete with each new edition of the Guide. This new format--generally described as principle-based rather than process-based--ensures that the industry-specific extensions remain aligned with subsequent editions of the Guide. The Construction Extension adds to the general Guide knowledge and practice about project management on construction sites that the Guide does not cover.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) provides generalized project management guidance applicable to most projects most of the time. In order to apply this generalized guidance to construction projects, the Project Management Institute has developed the Construction Extension to the PMBOK® Guide. This Construction Extension provides construction-specific guidance for the project management practitioner for each of the PMBOK® Guide Knowledge Areas, as well as guidance in these additional areas not found in the PMBOK® Guide: • All project resources, rather than just human resources • Project health, safety, security, and environmental management • Project financial management, in addition to cost • Management of claims in construction This edition of the Construction Extension also follows a new structure, discussing the principles in each of the Knowledge Areas rather than discussing the individual processes. This approach broadens the applicability of the Construction Extension by increasing the focus on the “what” and “why” of construction project management. This Construction Extension also includes discussion of emerging trends and developments in the construction industry that affect the application of project management to construction projects.
