Successful Construction Project Administration and Scheduling

21 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the contracting process, risk allocations and project delivery systems
  • Establish a project documentation and control system
  • Perform project schedule/time analysis, critical paths, floats/resource allocation
  • Delay impact and acceleration
  • Identify dispute causes to avoid claims
  • Design and implement an effective dispute management system
  • Effectively conduct the process of substantial completion and project hand-over

Most organizations cannot afford the personnel time to apprentice a field administrator-in-training. As a result, many field representatives are sent to a project unprepared to deal with the specific responsibilities associated with comprehensive field administration. This practical four-day course will fill that gap and focus on the technical and personal responsibilities involved in on-site construction observation, supervision, and coordination.

The course will increase your knowledge of construction practices and control techniques and develop your contract administration and decision-making skills by studying potential risks before the start of a project. It will also show you how to avoid disputes, manage and settle them, and finally conduct substantial completion and close out the contract.
