Construction Phase Risk Management

The dynamics and uncertainties inherent in the construction process demand intelligent, informed, objective and responsive administration of the contract for construction. This seminar, based on CNA/Schinnerer's Voluntary Education Program for Design Professional will address the important issues surrounding Construction Phase Risk Management. (Quoted from Shinnerer's VEP for Design Professionals 1-7)

After this seminar you will be able to explain why the contractor is traditionally responsible for construction means and methods, safety programs and procedures and list actions a design professional should take upon recognizing an apparently unsafe condition on site. You will have a greater understanding of the steps in the approval process for submittals and explain the usual allocation of responsibility between design professional and contractor with respect to submittals. You will also have a greater understanding of the role of consulting professionals in reviewing and stamping shop drawings.

Learn how to compare and contract a design professionals site observations or evaluations with inspections and describe the criteria for the timing of each. Also gain a greater understanding of the design professionals traditional role under the client-contractor agreement for administering change orders. And explore the meaning of a design professionals certification to the client for approval of payment to the contractor.
