Taking Charge of the

Construction Process

Construction projects are complex and high-stakes activities. Every
vendor, partner, and contractor involved in a project has their own
professional biases, financial risks and incentives, information
needs, and schedules. The potential for costly confusion and mistakes is
extraordinarily high.
Managers responsible for building and developing facilities need a
breadth of knowledge to manage the diverse perspectives in these com-
plex undertakings.
This intensive program is for you if you are managing your first con-
struction project, or if you want to have greater control and understand-
ing of the projects you currently manage. This program will prepare you
to make informed decisions at each stage of the construction procure-
ment process.
This is a step-by-step, how-to course. Each key phase of a project, and
the crucial task involved in each phase, will be outlined. Your faculty
will show you cutting edge techniques to clarify complex issues, make
sound decisions, and communicate effectively with the relevant stake-
holders.
Using real world examples, you will see how to apply different analyti-
cal tools, and use spreadsheets and pre-formatted documents to under-
stand and control a project from beginning to end. This course focuses
on all aspects of concept development, site selection, vendor and materi-
als procurement, construction stages, and final occupancy, while address-
ing contract law and risk management issues inherent in these areas.
When you finish this course, you will be ready to take charge of your
construction process.

Look at what you will cover in
this highly interactive course:


Making site-for-use and use-for-site decisions
How design affects costs
Determining the cost impact of the site
Assessing the feasibility of the project
Steps you can take to manage risks
Using the best procurement method for your project
How partnering can affect the delivery process
How to pre-qualify designers and builders
Using the "earned-value" approach to paying contractors
and how it can help you control your costs
How overall timing of decisions affects cost
How to manage change during the construction process
How to meet and beat deadlines and phase completion dates
How to manage the delivery process
