Course/Product Description


Construction Layout - A Foundation for Success I

Order:Qty: State:
Description: Course Overview

Construction Layout - Part 1 (of 2) conveys knowledge that's taken decades of experience to learn – information and principles that most who know such things won't share freely with others.

Success at construction layout is not achieved through technical expertise or measuring skills alone. Construction Layout exposes the architect, engineer or surveyor to a culture different from its own – to priorities and viewpoints unique to its genre, to a team experience requiring cooperation, effort and communications quite different from most other interactions within the professional design team.

Part 1 lays the foundations for understanding the 'world' of construction layout. It's the last step between conception and reality. On the construction site, theory meets the real world and anything that doesn't work gets modified until it does.

Construction layout is a dangerous vocation, prone to frightening levels of liability exposures. There's a lot to know besides cogo calcs and measuring skills.

Topics Covered In Part 1 and Part 2 Include

  • Fee negotiation
  • contract issues and considerations
  • payment schedules
  • bidding secrets
  • liability exposure – real and imagined
  • record keeping
  • documentation
  • work orders

  • documentation
  • pitfalls to avoid
  • checking and redundancy
  • equipment selection
  • care and adjustment
  • ...and more!
