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 event, 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.
