Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 11, 2014
An upcoming webinar sponsored by WPL Publishing will highlight for professionals within the construction community some of the most effective techniques for project documentation.
This webinar will describe why good documentation is so important and why contemporaneous documentation created by stakeholders during the life of a construction project is even more important. The various ways that construction projects are documented and preserved for posterity during their duration will be described, and suggestions for making this documentation more fact-focused and effective will be offered. The program will show how effective communication and documentation can increase the likelihood of resolving issues in a timely manner and without resort to the claims or litigation process. Real-life examples of both effective and not-so-effective communications will be presented. To register for the 90-minute event, which will take place Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/lbs4wjy.
The webinar will cover pre-construction documentation, standard records (meeting minutes, logs, and requests for information), testing and inspections, communications (emails, letters, and schedules), documentation of oral conversations, and tips for ensuring effective photographs and videos.
Upon completion of the webinar, entitled “Effective Construction Project Documentation,” attendees will be able to do the following:
- Identify when an event should be documented.
- Recognize when a response to another’s documentation is required.
- Draft an effective letter, memo, or email that is neutral in its tone, focused on facts, and omits editorial or inflammatory comments.
- Create unbiased meeting minutes.
- Complete daily reports that accurately recount what happened on the project.
- Better understand the need for a filing system that is used by everyone and facilitates the retrieval of relevant facts.
Addressing the webinar audience will be J. Scott Lowe and William Milliken of Trauner Consulting Services Inc.
After their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, http://tinyurl.com/lbs4wjy.
