CAP Collaboration Series: Effectively Using Your Contractor During Preconstruction: The foundation of IPD with Rafn Company

Join our Corporate Allied Partner Rafn Company for an hour long Continuing Education class on working with your construction team.

Course Description

Regardless of the contract format, there are truly effective ways to interact with the construction team during the preconstruction process. Let us show you the depth and breadth of what you can expect and ask for during the preconstruction phase of your project. By effectively partnering with your contractor you can eliminate time consuming rework, reduce unnecessary details, focus on problem areas and produce a better outcome for your client. We will also show you how using the Integrated Project Delivery Model you can avoid the dreaded value engineering / cost reduction exercises that often accompanies the GMP and ultimately diminish the design intent. Michael Dziubinski, Rafn Project Executive, brings his architectural background to bear on protecting the integrity of the design by creating true value in identifying cost saving strategies that avoid sacrificing design character.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn how to communicate expectations clearly to the construction team.
  • Identify when in the preconstruction process certain decisions are most cost effective.
  • Participants will gain a clearer understanding of the impact and importance of collaboration.
  • Participants will learn how to reduce rework and minimize changes.
