Construction Project Operations

This presentation provides the practitioner with an insight into proper operations procedures as well as a template to incorporate into the company’s manual. The material explains in detail step by step of directing and operating construction for profit. It is sharply focused on the facts, eliminating extraneous unnecessary detail. The Exhibits section provides field tested forms which support the principles explained in the presentation.

During this seminar the attendee will be made aware of the fact that construction companies go on starting project after project too often without applying a “lessons learned” approach based on the last completed project. Effective management successes last as long as one person’s memory-if coincidence has allowed that person to use the experience again.

With ever-increasing drawings and specifications, heaping mounds of contract boilerplate, proliferation of computers, the barrage of government regulations and the influence of the global marketplace, it is critical to report all categories of field information accurately, quickly and completely. The success or failure of this effort translates into either containment of costs or huge financial losses. Dramatic increases in the cost of doing business dictate that operations must be streamlined for maximum efficiency. Duplication of effort must be eliminated if overhead is to be controlled. The exponential increases in the incidence of arbitration and litigation mean that if you are to the reach the top and stay on top, all your records must be accurate and complete.
