Who is the contracting and client relationship workshop for

This course is ideal for those who routinely deal with main contractors and quantity surveyors and offers invaluable information you can use to self-check your in-house procedures.

Managing directors, company owners – anyone responsible for the overall profitability of a company. Make sure you understand what your company obligations are and the consequences of not delivering them. Make sure you understand who in your team needs to understand them as well and what they should be doing on site.

Site managers, foremen, team leaders, project managers – anyone who works physically on site and is responsible for works being delivered within the scope of work and defined contract requirements; anyone responsible for overseeing subcontractors.
