The basic purpose of Construction Contract Administration (CCA) is to determine whether the project is being built in conformance with the design intent. This program will also explore the roles of the client, design professional, contractor, and subcontractors in CCA activities such as site visits, the perils of substitutions, non-conforming Work, RFI responses, change orders, and more, with a focus on the impact of COVID-19 on these services. Once the pitfalls and challenges are exposed, participants will gain strategies to attain optimal outcomes during construction.

In this webinar, you’ll:

  • Recognize that design errors surface during the construction phase of a project, and that proactive construction administration can support the continuity, quality, and intent of the design
  • Review the requirements of Standard of Care and learn about NCARB Model Law, which shows at least 17 states require CCA services be provided by a licensed architect to help determine whether a building is being properly constructed
  • Understand that by facilitating project communications, maintaining clear project records, and identifying/addressing problems in a timely manner can eliminate or minimize negative impacts
  • Acquire strategies, tools and techniques to more effectively administer the contract for construction (including the performance of field observation duties and COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment and related safety practices for those on the jobsite), act impartially (AIA code of Ethics) and manage client expectations
  • And more…
