Topics Include:

Project Management:

The goal of a project manager is to reach three primary objectives: finish the project on time, within budget and with the expected degree of quality. This requires close attention to detail before beginning actual construction, as well as during the project. Taking proactive measures will help you determine possible obstacles that could cause problems in any one of the 3 major concerns before problems occur. During this course we are going to analyze all three primary areas of concern and learn proven methods used to manage all three areas most effectively.

To reach the objectives of finishing on time and on budget with the expected degree of quality, much information will need to be compiled before the construction activities begin. This information will be used to create two very important documents used by a project manager throughout the term of the project: project schedule and project budget. Without these documents, managing a project would be extremely difficult and most likely inefficient.


Project Budget:

Project management includes determining the cost of labor, cost of materials and cost of equipment in a course of time which will achieve the maximum value from each. The budget is based on project overhead, labor, materials, equipment, and subcontractors. By acquiring reliable information before the project starts, you will have the ability to better manage job costs as the project progresses. By comparing actual costs to expected costs, you will become aware of many possible problems, allowing you to take proactive actions to better control cost overruns.


Project Schedule:

Collecting as much reliable information about the expected duration of each task in a project will allow you to reach a closer estimate of the time it will take to finish the entire project. If the information is accurate concerning the duration of each task, the schedule will be closely followed. If not, the schedule will deviate, possibly greatly.

Analyzing the details of each task ahead of time will help reduce the possibility of delays during the project. Most often, project delays cause cost increases. Construction contracting is a very detailed business.



Contracts are agreements entered into voluntarily by two or more parties who promise to exchange money, goods or services according to a specified schedule. Knowing the elements of a contract and how to put a quality contract together from the beginning is crucial in making sure you are protected while protecting your customers. You will learn what to look for in solid contracts versus what types of items make a contract null and void. The different types of contracts are explained, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each.
