Construction Auditing:  Where to Start and How to make it Work for Your Organization
Mitigating financial risk and ensuring construction dollars are spent wisely are fundamental to construction programs. Today’s economic environment demands facility development directors be technically proficient, risk averse, and financially savvy. Reducing project construction costs without loss of features and functionality can be accomplished with rigorous project financial controls and a risk management program.
Attend this program to learn strategies to reduce construction costs and project administrative burden, minimize change orders, and provide stakeholders assurance that maximum value is realized for their construction investment. An interactive case study will be used to demonstrate these strategies, from preconstruction activities to the final walk-through.
