Purpose and Background

This seminar gives practical guidance on construction project administration, field management, and claims avoidance. Hundreds of participants have saved time and money on their projects by applying the principles and techniques set forth in this dynamic seminar. In two intensive days, you will follow the construction process from the preconstruction phase through project closeout, learning procedures, contract provisions, and rules of conduct that will help minimize and resolve claims and disputes. Information technology tools that can be used to assure a smooth flowing project will also be discussed.

Particular attention is paid to the claims-sensitive areas of communication between owners, architects, engineers, bidders, contractors, subcontractors and other concerned parties.
