Construction Programs and Projects are inherently risky, and risk comes in many forms and are both internal and external – Budget overruns, site conditions, safety, competition for work, disputes and litigation, stakeholder influence, workforce, environmental, etc.

Coming out of the recession, the construction industry has realized an incredible rise in activity In the Pacific Northwest; and with no major slowing in sight, Owners are faced with old and new challenges. Volatile market prices, labor shortages, are some of the major risks that have become even more prevalent.     

Join us for an in depth conversation with Owners representing public and private sectors - in K12 facilities, transportation, infrastructure, and healthcare, to hear about strategies Owners are implementing to mitigate risk specifically related to project delivery and cost control. We will discuss project delivery methods for various projects, timing of projects within a program, research into the local market to understand volumes of work and where shortage of skilled labor exist. What tools have been developed to deal with these challenges?
