Both the considerations – “the Schedule and the Budget”, in preparing the key elements of the Project Controls are both fundamental as well as overlooked. The webinar will focus specifically on the Pre-Construction Phase, which is the phase that sets the foundation and tone for the entire project that follows.

By establishing proper project control elements at this phase, the project’s path forward is known, any deviations quickly become apparent, and any adjustments can be timely made. We will cover both schedule and cost control, and how the two work together. We will discuss the various types of schedules that feed into project controls, their scope and the important characteristics that each should embody; as well as pitfalls to be avoided. We will also cover the phases of estimating, and how to adjust estimates based on the quality of the design documents, and what to consider in developing a contingency. 

Join this session by expert speaker Fritz Marth, where he will discuss how to successfully establish Pre-Construction Planning Activities to help mitigate financial, operational, and compliance risk for the project.

  • Develop the schedules leading up to the construction baseline
