Construction Law Bible

If you work for a public works construction contractor or you do construction management on public works jobs, Administration of Government Contracts by John Cibinic, Jr. and Ralph C. Nash, Jr. is the bible for governmental law. A very brief background from a construction professional, not a lawyer, is provided here on this key publication which should be on your bookshelf.http://runjobsoftware.com/news/construction-law-bible/--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/support

Subs Should Join Forces!

There’s a thousand different scenarios to exemplify my proposal here, but let’s say your company is a cabinet installer on a large new single family home project.  There are 400 homes and you have to install kitchen and bathroom cabinetry in each of them.  In each of the homes you go in to to perform your work, the kitchens are in a different state of completion.  Some do not have electrical and plumbing done, some have incomplete drywall, and maybe some aren’t even dried in yet to protect from the elements.http://runjobsoftware.com/news/subs-should-join-forces/--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/support
Once the project starts, it is the Contractor’s project management team’s responsibility to update the client on a regular, usually weekly, basis. This is done graphically using a lookahead schedule in bar chart format (also known as a Gantt Chart). Here we discuss the contents and reliability of the lookahead schedule.http://runjobsoftware.com/news/the-lookahead-schedule-and-90-60-30/--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/therunjobreview/support
