Construction Contract Administration

Construction Contract Administration

Course Description: Contract Administration (CA) is an integral part of project management, because it ensures that facilities are built as documented, and it minimizes the risk of claims. But CA is very challenging for most project managers. To do it well, you need 4 key ingredients: a good contract document, a good construction team, good process, and great communication skills. This workshop covers the last two ingredients: process and communication.

This two-day course takes project managers through a journey from the award of a construction contract to the warranty inspection and follow-up activities. Participants gain a clearer understanding of construction contracts, which will equip them to make timely decisions and take calculated risks. The course is full of real-life examples of contract administration issues and challenges.

Course Objectives: The course combines lecture, group interaction, case studies, and real court cases – all intended to reinforce your understanding of important contract administration issues.
