Effective Construction Office and Field Administration

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:

  • select and use new methods of project delivery with the knowledge of their impact on the responsibilities of contract administrators
  • upgrade your bidding and contract award procedures, the activities at the start of the construction process
  • make more efficient your construction start-up procedures since they set the tone for the quality of subsequent work
  • prevent construction claims by maintaining your project history and personal project diaries
  • manage your construction project contract closeout with a better understanding of your role in it

As one who participates in the management for the construction of buildings, you may have a good understanding of your day to day role. However, to advance your career you need to become more familiar with the responsibilities of the other people involved in the construction process and how these responsibilities relate to your own.

At this course you will have the opportunity to learn about the roles of others, from the perspective of the owner, consultant and the contractor and to develop your own field observation knowledge and skills.
