Event Description

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

 

Construction Management 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 Contractors 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 in order to fulfil your contractual responsibilities and achieve success.  A well orchestrated Construction Management project drives success for all partners. 

 

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

  1. Gain an understanding of the Construction Management process
  2. Recognize when to use Construction Management as a Delivery Method
  3. Learn the roles of each partner for collaborative success
  4. Determine when and how to procure Construction Management services
  5. Identify tools and techniques to optimize Construction Management performance
  6. Grasp the nuances of the different forms of Construction Management contracts – CCDC 5A|5B (industry standard contracts)
  7. Understand the duties assigned and compensation for Preconstruction, Construction and Post-Construction in the CCDC 5A | 5B
  8. Practice the key elements to focus on for project success:
    • Engage the design assist process
    • Align budgets to estimates
    • Use design control to promote cost control
  9. Apply the learned knowledge to establish the Construction Manager’s compensation
  10. Discuss the pros and cons for conversion to consolidated pricing
  11. Acquire critical insights into the challenges with the Construction Management Delivery Method

Who should attend: Understanding the keys to success for construction management is important for all industry partners! This course is most applicable to mid-management personnel who will actively be working on Construction Management projects and administering the contract.

FACILITATOR:

 

Debbie Hicks, BSc | DSH Consulting - Workshop Facilitator

With a comprehensive and varied education background, learning has been at the core of her career. As former President of the Southern Interior Construction Association in BC for 22 years, liaising with the buyers of construction services, architects, engineers and contractors in advocacy and education brings a solid base to her expertise. In addition, her experience as the owner representative for the construction of the new Clubhouse for the Kelowna Yacht Club has provided additional perspective. She has been fortunate to work with the Alberta Construction Association to facilitate industry dialogue on “Optimizing the Flow of Money” and “Non-Standard Contract Clauses and their Costs”. Through these experiences, with a lot of passion and enthusiasm, Debbie is able to bring both knowledge and insight into her work and presentations for the construction industry.

 

What previous participants have said:

 

“Fast paced, well organized, led by industry experts.  Well worth it for those in the vertical construction industry as architects, engineers, CM's, contractors or sub-trades.”

“A course that keeps you engaged.  Subject matter experts from coast to coast and their experiences at your fingertips.  Great Value!”

“A brief, intense overview of the CCDC 5a and 5b contracts:  a collaborative approach to project development and execution.  The real-life experiences shared from our trainers provided excellent context for the relevance of these contracts' evolution.”
