Description: Course Overview

Construction Layout - A Foundation for Success Part 2 (of 2) In this course, you'll continue building practical application on the foundational principles presented in Part 1.

In this section, you'll learn what to do after you've successfully completed your marketing effort and negotiated a contract.

It can't be overstated: The construction world is different than the culture where design professionals live and breathe, turning out their inspirations. Becoming comfortable and familiar with the unique dynamics and sub-culture of the construction realm is prerequisite to a design professional's or surveyor's success through providing construction layout services.

Becoming truly attuned to your client's needs gives you an edge over your competition. The advantage is huge!
