Written for the owners or managers of small construction businesses, the ROMAR books provide both the management and technical advice needed in order to make a success of routine maintenance and regravelling as a business activity. The handbook and workbook can be used together by reading the chapter in the handbook and then working through the examples in the workbook. The first part of the books deals with the principles, including technical consideration and appropriate construction technology. The second part looks at putting these principles into practice * how roads deteriorate and how to manage maintenance contracts, how to carry out regravelling projects, pricing and bidding for road maintenance contracts and how to build up detailed prices for a bill of quantities.
