Description

Many projects run into cost overruns, schedule delays, quality, and performance issues. Thus, Project Owners are looking for solutions!  

Construction Management (CM) is a great solution if done well! Construction Management is about building a collaborative team from the outset of the project. The team is comprised of the Project Owner, Consultant, and Contractor to address the key areas of functional requirements, time, cost, quality, and constructability. 

Whether you are the Project Owner, Consultant, General Contractor, or Subcontractor, you need to understand your Construction Management roles and responsibilities throughout all project phases: predesign, design, project delivery, and post-construction. You also need to be well-versed in the Construction Management project drivers and concepts as outlined in the CCDC 5A+5B in order to fulfill your contractual responsibilities and achieve success.  A well-orchestrated Construction Management project drives success for all partners. 

Project success takes more than just understanding what is "written" in your contract; it's about leveraging key requirements from start to finish! 

In this course, from a team of industry partners’ perspectives, you will: 

  • Gain an understanding of the Construction Management process
