Are you new to the construction industry or a longtime employee interested in understanding all the pieces of the industry? Building Knowledge: The Construction Industry Explained (formerly known as Construction 101) is designed to put the pieces of the construction industry puzzle together. Participants have called this session a master’s course in construction because of the vast and valuable information included.

You will engage in learning activities that will enable you to appreciate project delivery from concept to closeout. All skills are aimed to help your company be more efficient and effective in improving the bottom line.
This course is ideal for… Everybody: new and longtime employees owners, architects, engineers, suppliers, contractors, and trades. Whether you’re onsite, giving direction – or in the office, taking phonecalls – this course is for you!
