GC/CM Training on February 13-14

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.  Architects and engineers can also benefit from the training in understanding their different role on a GC/CM project.

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 (talking about the complexities of the various cost categories in GC/CM contracting) and will also be on the panel.

When:  February 13-14, 2014 (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

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

Cost:  $350

Capacity:  51 seats available (as of January 12, 2014)

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