CCDC 5A | 5B: Construction Management Keys to Success

The construction management project delivery method is about building a collaborative team from the outset of the project. The team is comprised of the project owner, consultant and contractors to address the key areas of functional requirements, time, cost, quality, and constructability. When construction management is done well you avoid cost overruns, schedule delays, quality and performance issues, leading to success for everyone involved.

In this course, you will delve into detail on what Construction Management is, the roles and responsibilities of each partner throughout all project phases: predesign, design, project delivery and post construction. After taking this course, you will be well-versed in the construction management project drivers and concepts to fulfil your contractual responsibilities and grasp the nuances of the contract clauses in CCDC 5A | 5B.
