Construction Phase and Beyond

Episode III: Operation Build


The Training

You made it through procurement. You survived the re-procurement, budget nightmares, and design reality checks! Just when you thought you were done - it's just begun!

In this, the third of our three-part series, learn how to get what you paid for. That means knowing what you paid for in terms of the responsibilities of the design pro’s and construction team. It means knowing how to document unsatisfactory performance, knowing when to pay the money, and how not to pay more than you owe. Termination, warranties, construction claims, change orders, time extensions, final payment, and bond claims are all essential concepts we cover in this training.

Learn how to get what you paid for handle designer/contractor turf wars, change orders, and delays. Learn document failures to meet contractual obligations, end relationships or try to save floundering projects. Learn bond claim essentials and strategies to avoid disputes and construction defects.

This training is for Superintendents, CFOs, Assistant Superintendents, District Construction staff, Architects, Project Managers, purchasing professionals, Board Members, and any district employee that works as a part of the construction team.

David Hansen will be your trainer for this session. The session is part legal, part practical and all original. We feel confident in saying that you have never been to a training like this before. It combines story, competition, and music into an experience we hope you will enjoy and remember for years to come.

The Story

This is the final chapter of the story of Ted Brown – the rookie procurement specialist forced by his now-disgraced former boss into the dangerous world of hyper-accelerated procurement practice. Ted’s ordeal transformed him into “The Procurist.” Together, The Procurist and his new boss Kevin Truly, regained control of their flailing bond projects. In Operation Build, they face the challenge of bringing these projects to life. They are about to learn an important lesson – when the procurement is done, the work is just begun. To make it through they must survive the Operation Build Club.
