GC/CM Training on January 31-February 1

2 Days of Training on GC/CM (General Contractor/Construction Manager)

GC/CM is one of three alternative public works contracting procedures authorized by Washington State law (RCW 39.10).  The generic name for this method of contracting, and as it is known elsewhere in the country, is Construction Manager at Risk.

Who should attend?  If you represent a public agency and you are exploring whether to deliver an upcoming project through GC/CM, attendance at the training will be very helpful for you.  Likewise, if you represent a contractor or subcontractor and are interested in doing work for agencies with GC/CM projects, understanding how it works is very important.  

Structure of the training:  The training is a good overview of the GC/CM process and some of the issues involved in implementing it.  There will be presentations by industry experts, hands-on class exercises, and plenty of time for questions and answers with a panel.  I will be one of the presenters and will also be on the panel.

When:  January 31 and February 1, 2013 (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Where:  Seattle, Washington (AGC Building, 1200 Westlake Ave. N.)

Cost:  $350

Capacity:  44 seats available (as of January 5, 2013)

Sponsored by:  AGC Education Foundation, University of Washington, and Mechanical Contractors Association of Western Washington
