This practical five-day course is designed to systematically cover the developmental subjects vital to training competent contract and field administrators to manage time, cost, documentation and disputes during this important phase. Field administration is a critical process in achieving successful facility construction. Developing an effective field administrator requires time and exposure to a variety of construction and management experiences. Most organizations cannot afford the personnel time to apprentice a field administrator-in-training. As a result, many field representatives are sent out to a project unprepared to deal with the specific responsibilities associated with comprehensive field administration. This course will focus on the legal, technical and personal responsibilities involved in observation, supervision, and coordination of on-site construction. You will increase your knowledge of construction practices and control techniques and develop your skills in management, contract administration, and decision-making, finally contract close-out, all of which are essential in administering the contacts required by today’s complex projects.
