Event Description

Learn the critical first step to a successful construction project

Register now for this 60-minute webinar in which our expert speaker, Zach Jones, will reveal, in a checklist style, the second set of the 10 fundamental strategies construction contracting professionals can use to avoid time-wasting and profit-eating legal disputes. (If you missed Part I of this program series, don't fret! You can order a CD and/or transcript of the presentation to find out the other five strategies. Details here.)

You can avoid most construction contracting disputes-if you know how to get in front of an issue before it escalates into a costly legal battle. Continue to hone that very essential skill in Part II of this information-packed program.

Part II will answer these critical questions:

  • What role should the estimate play after the contract is awarded?
  • Is the estimate a valuable tool for project managers?
  • What consideration should go into creating a schedule of values?
  • Should contractors be transparent about what went into the schedule of values?
  • Who has authority on the project, and what does that authority mean?
  • What is the first critical step to a successful project-and does that first step carry forward throughout the project's life?
  • When does the project team need to ask for help?
  • Who can offer the most efficient help?

This presentation is appropriate for project managers, of course-but also for project engineers, superintendents, estimators, operations managers, principals, engineers, architects, construction managers and owner representatives.

After attending this webinar, you will gain a valuable checklist you can use at the start of every new project to safeguard against unnecessary legal conflicts. You will learn how to effectively and efficiently go from pre-construction to the construction phase. And you will gain valuable insight into why certain steps are necessary to build, manage, and oversee a successful project.
