Armada House Conference Centre, Bristol
This seminar will present a broad view of managing construction contracts with a particular emphasis on:
Those working in the construction industry are required to be able to communicate effectively and correctly in order to administer contracts, manage the construction process and satisfy their own responsibilities, or those for whom they work, as well as needing to be able to secure the position in law and negotiate on a regular basis. This seminar will review how to communicate, how to give notices and certificates, the issues to be considered in communications, the techniques, structure, content and purpose of common forms, correspondence, negotiation and various aspects of administration and the consequences of failure to communicate.
The purpose of financial reporting is to aid in the overall financial management of a project, by providing a profile of expected costs and an indication of when they will be incurred. The speaker will discuss in detail the requirements of a compliant programme, the consequence of programming and target completion, critical path and concurrency.
The seminar will review the role of the Project Manager in providing an efficient and cost effective method of delivering a project from inception through to completion and highlight elements to take into consideration such as events under JCT 2005 and NEC3 Contracts, time bar and silence.
