Der Bereich Kostenrechnung ist entscheidend fur den wirtschaftlichen Erfolg eines Bauunternehmens. Dementsprechend wichtig ist die genaue und umfassende Kenntnis ihrer Prinzipien und Grundsatze sowie deren Anwendung in allen Projektphasen. Dieses Buch behandelt sowohl die Bauauftragsrechnung, die Betriebsabrechnung als auch das Controlling auf der Ebene des Einzelprojekts wie auch fur das Gesamtunternehmen. Damit ist es das ideale Nachschlagewerk fur die Praxis, insbesondere fur kleine und mittlere Bauunternehmen sowie das Baugewerbe.<br /> <br /> Wie stelle ich einen Nachtrag auf? Wie mache ich eine korrekte Leistungsmeldung? Wie kontrolliere ich den Stundenverbrauch? Wie ermittele ich das momentane Ergebnis und rechne dieses auf den Abschluss der Bauma?nahme hoch? - Auf diese und viele weitere im Tagesgeschaft auftretende Fragen gibt das Buch praxisnahe Antworten.<br /> <br /> Dabei wird detailliert auf die kurzlich erschienene KLR-Bau 2016 eingegangen. In dieser wird neben der Kostenstellenrechnung auch die in der stationaren Industrie gebrauchliche Kostentragerrechnung behandelt. Das vorliegenden Buch zeigt anhand von Vergleichsrechnungen die Unterschiede beider Verfahren auf und hinterfragt die Eignung der Kostentragerrechnung fur die Bauwirtschaft.<br /> <br /> Das Buch ist ebenfalls hervorragend als Lehrbuch im Fach "Baubetrieb" geeignet und stellt somit die Verbindung zwischen Lehre und Praxis her.

Home Improvement Contracting, in the mind of most consumers, is a necessary evil if they want to make improvements to their home or property.<br />The processes that are normally completed in hiring a contractor are:<br /><br />The Estimate<br />The Contract<br />The Financing<br />The Permit (if required)<br />The Work<br />Final Inspection<br />Final Payment<br /><br />Of course, there are steps involved in each of these processes.

It is written in a format that covers, in detail, the contracting process.<br /><br />I hope you find this guide a great aid in helping make the contracting process smoother, more enjoyable, and the final product one in which you can be proud.

***This is a completed standalone book with no cliff hangers***<br /><br />Templeton Rawlins is a dragon shifter and lives for one thing. Imprisoned when his dragon heritage was revealed, and on a false charge of murder, he spends his long days in solitary confinement having dragon dreams of revenge. One man betrayed Tem to the authorities and this is who Tem desires to destroy. He knows he has little chance of breaking from the iron shackles that bind him and his dragon magic to his human form. His frustrated dreams of his enemy’s destruction have eaten his soul, and make him a danger to any human who comes near him. While Tem’s shifter magic is bound, his dragon power of seduction is not, which is why the specially trained humans who bring him his food come in pairs. Then one night, a single human comes and speaks as if she has no fear of him. This human intrigues Tem, in ways he’d long forgotten.<br /><br />Dragon shifters have always fascinated Astrid Davis, since the first days of the Reveal, when the media reported the shocking discovery that dragons were real and not myths. The news that dragons could shift into human form and hide in society sowed fear and distrust among humans. Any dragons found were imprisoned. Any human suspected of harboring even a tenth of dragon blood was shunned from society. But Astrid couldn’t help but admire the shifters, who, she was convinced, did more good than harm in the world. She wanted to learn more about them, so she trained and took a job as a dragon guard. When she met Tem, she was immediately drawn to him, even though he showed utter scorn for her. But would Astrid’s determination to help Tem place her at the wrong end of the law? And would Tem’s desire for revenge override the attraction they felt toward one another? <br /><br />Subscribe to our newsletter at:<br /><br />http://persiapublishing.com/subscribe-to-romance-stryker/<br /><br />Join our Facebook Group at:<br /><br />https://www.facebook.com/KT-Stryker-193791974459021/<br /><br />A list of all my novels:<br /><br />The Dragon Lords:<br /><br />Captured by the Dragon - standalone<br /><br />Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, dragon battles, and sexy shifters.
