Close-Out Starts Early: A Proactive Approach to Project Completion

Summary: A common problem on projects is inefficient completion process, where the contractor just compiles a close-out list, but the punch list reveals work scope that is incomplete so the project and punch-out operations drag on. Learn how to implement a proactive approach to completion that includes an assessment survey, combined with monitoring an on-going completion list that captures deficiencies so trade work can be completed ahead of the punch list. This process minimizes delays at the end of the project that often result from an incomplete and missing scope.

Evolving Construction Disputes (2015)

Summary: This panel will discuss evolving legal issues that should be of concern to CMs and CMARs. The discussion will probe the recent Massachusetts case holding a CMAR liable for a design issue because of the CMAR’s preconstruction and "design" role, and the potential impact of this holding on the "new methodology" of a CMAR. The panel will also discuss the deteriorating quality of expert-prepared delay claims exacerbated by the “vanishing trial" in the U.S. and the impact of this trend on CMs and CMARs.

Use Meditation Techniques to Start the Project, Rather Than Finish It!
