Planning & Scheduling

This course introduces the concepts of Critical Path Method (CPM) for scheduling. This process is typically performed with Primavera or Microsoft Project software; however, students will develop a CPM network by hand to understand what the scheduling tools and computer applications are doing. Sample computer reports will be shown and discussed. A schedule has value if it is used. Progress collection and control will be explained so the schedule can become a “living” document reflecting actual progress, a history of what has been accomplished, and a road map to project completion. Implementing a Project Management Office (PMO) will be discussed, organization, Work Breakdown Structures (WBSs), and Resource Assignment Matrix (RAM) tools will be addressed to illustrate additional ways to help manage work scope and project teams.

AIA Contracts

AIA’s General Conditions of the Contract for Construction have been revised! Learn all about the changes at this upcoming workshop. 


It is absolutely vital for a contractor to choose an unbiased contract that apportions risks and responsibilities in a fair and balanced manner. The A201™–2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction is the keystone document in a majority of projects that set forth a contractor’s roles and responsibilities on a construction project. The A201 is incorporated by reference into other contract documents with owners, architects and subcontractors and puts a contractor on solid legal footing with the owner of a project by balancing risks and responsibilities equitably. This seminar will instruct those who negotiate and manage the use of AIA contracts, including design-build, construction management, and subcontract agreements.
