Building Construction – Putting it all Together

Every road that you drive on, every school that you attend, every house that you live in and every hospital that you receive care at was designed and built by the people in the construction industry.

Construction is a team effort with owners, contractors, architects, and subcontractors performing key functions throughout the lifecycle of a project. This workshop delivers a step-by-step review of the project lifecycle, from initiation through close-out, with specific attention to the unique roles and responsibilities of these stakeholders at each phase of the project.
