Additional Details

Typically the responsibility of the General Contractor, proper meeting minutes of these construction meetings reflect the view of all stakeholders and should be a complete, reliable and accurate documentation of the current status of the project as well as the next steps, as agreed to by all parties. This, however, is not as easy at it sounds. Proper meeting minutes require effective listening, accurate recording and most importantly, the understanding of the risk involved if an action item is not completed as promised.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Create and implement a construction meeting protocol and meeting minute process and procedure
  • Have a greater understanding of the need to listen effectively and to record accurate and factual construction meeting minutes
  • Improve project outcomes and enhance project success by the actioning and delivery of project deliverables by stakeholders

Exclusive to this workshop is a comprehensive manual that is used as a reference and guide throughout the sessions. The manual is based on accumulated knowledge gathered over 40 years in the construction industry. It is a valuable and effective tool that contains not only practical how-to’s, checklists and templates but will also be a foundation for new processes and procedures back in the office or on the jobsite.
