Construction Management Essentials: The Basics

About this course

Learning Format:

Classroom Presentation

Description:

Construction Management Essentials is a 5 part series that offers deep dives into Daily Logs, RFIs, Commitments, Budget, and Submittals. 

Daily Logs
In the event of a financial or legal dispute, daily logs are the first line of defense. Daily logs are objective records of day-to-day activities on the job site, highlighting weather events, tracking and time-stamping supplies and subcontractors as they come and go, and recording the use of equipment. In this course, you will be introduced to the function of the daily log on the job site, identify who is responsible for daily log entries, and familiarize yourself with best practices for creating daily logs.

RFIs
Building professionals rely on employees to write RFIs professionally and in a manner that will elicit the best response possible in a timely manner. However, little training is provided in the industry on RFIs. This course was designed to help others understand what an RFI is, how and why it is used, what is not effective when it comes to RFIs, and what best practices may produce the highest quality results for RFIs.

Commitments
Specialty contractors provide the majority of labor and material on a job site. Subcontractors, vendors, and material suppliers all have contractual agreements, or commitments, with the general contractor. Understanding commitments is key to understanding modern construction practice. In this course, we will define commitments, how they are used, and outline best practices for creating commitments.

Budget
An accurate budget is the key to any successful construction project. In this course you’ll be introduced to the fundamentals of a project budget. Learn how budgets are created and maintained, who is responsible for overseeing the budget, how to differentiate between types of project costs, and how to build a budget that will accommodate the change orders and overruns that are par for the course in any construction project.

Submittals
A submittal takes a drawing from a design to a buildable design. Effectively managing the submittal process is one of the many responsibilities of new construction managers. In this course, we will define submittals in the context of construction, identify the purpose of a submittal, and familiarize you with the steps in the submittal process.

Learning Objectives:
    • Define a daily log in the context of construction and identify the purposes and components of a daily log.
    • Define the term RFI and identify the purpose, components, and parties involved in an RFI.
    • Distinguish a commitment from a subcontract.
    • Identify the types of costs and budget components.
    • Define the term submittal in the context of construction and identify the steps in the submittal process.
