Ask around, if you are a beginner and come to this training, you will leave with the tools needed to confidently hire the Architects, Contractors, and Construction Managers you need to build your project. If you are an experienced purchasing pro, you will reinforce your knowledge, spackle the holes in your knowledge, and learn new strategies to negotiate value and security into you contracts.

 

In the past, we have done this as an all-day session. This time around we will present the training in four parts. If you cannot make it on each of the dates, do not worry! You will be able to watch the recorded sessions at your convenience.

 

Each session will be held from 10 am – 12 pm on the following dates:

We will compare and contrast Competitive Bidding and Competitive Sealed Proposals and begin a comparison of General Contracting and Construction Management at Risk. For each method we will discuss the unique problems that arise with each method and techniques that will give you the best chance to avoid those problems to keep your project on track.
