2 Days
Crystal City Courtyard by Marriott Hotel
2899 Jefferson Davis Hwy
Room Reservation:
Planner, paymaster, negotiator and more, today’s project manager has more varied responsibilities than just about anyone else on the job. And more to keep up with, as everything from technology to codes to financing changes and evolves. Practical Project Management for Construction Professionals can update and enhance your project management skills building on what you know and helping you to do it better.
This seminar is separated into seven topics. It is presented through the eyes of the general contractor’s project management team. Whether an attendees practice is commercial or residential is irrelevant. The practical skills are identical and the application very similar. Everyone can benefit from the unique perspective that can be derived from understanding the process as practiced by the professional. All parties to the construction process can benefit from knowing what should be expected of the professional project manager.

Here’s just a sample of what you’ll learn:
  • A Project management overview
  • Contract review
  • Key characteristics of various construction contracts including stipulated sum, design/build cost plus fee and more
  • Negotiating with subcontractors and vendors
  • Communication, including some critical writing skills
  • Cost control procedures from integrated cost and schedule control, to forecasting and trends
  • Insurance, bonds and risk allocation. It’s all about managing risk -- who assumes it, how much it costs, and why
  • Dispute resolution, claims and liens including negotiations techniques that can lead to satisfactory resolutions, what arbitration can and cannot do, and some tips for preparing for litigation.
  • Project Delivery and closeout
