dc.description.abstractThe design phase and construction phase for public works and civil transportation projects over the last century have become extensively specialized. Consequently, design guides and construction manual literature accessible to project managers, design engineers, and construction engineers has become more comprehensive and increasingly detailed, and additional specialized skill sets are now required to manage and administer heavy civil projects. Gaps exist in the available civil engineering literature and no guide or manual that follows the overall life of a public works or civil transportation project through the complete project lifecycle has been developed by an independent author, a local municipal government, or by a state department of transportation. This project developed an outline to a comprehensive civil engineering manual for managing and administering Alaska municipal public works and State of Alaska DOT&PF highway projects. The outline has brought together necessary elements of design engineering, construction contract administration, construction inspection, materials testing and special inspections, and project management. The manual outline was progressively elaborated in conjunction with several research phases that occurred throughout a four-year period. Literature review of published resources specific to Alaska was followed by interviews with design/construction engineers and project managers (SMEs) from several state departments of transportation.en_US
