California Construction Project Management

OnDemand Webinar (57 minutes)

Gain practical information that will make an immediate difference in your construction projects.All construction projects have issues and problems; the difference between them is how they are dealt with and hopefully avoided. Managing construction projects is a very complex task as there are dozens of contractual and technical issues, and the most complex issue of all, the human element. You will deal with many different people on the project, with their own liabilities and agendas. The construction part is the easiest part of the project. But if you don't apply proper construction management and the correct documentation, you might find yourself in costly disputes. Our speaker has seen many projects go into litigation and companies lose their business simply because they did not know how to properly manage their projects. This course will review a wide variety of topics and concepts you will face during a construction project. Our speaker will explain the issues and offer real-life best practices and tips based on his 38 years of experience managing construction projects.
