Construction Administration Practices: Panel Discussion
When bringing projects to fruition, the phase most fraught with stress is during construction. Vast sums of money are involved and time is of the essence. Enter the construction administrators who facilitate constructing the project for the owner, contractor, and designers. With varied skills of
technicians, investigators, diplomats, and negotiators, construction administrators take drawings, specifications, and other contract documents to make dreams become reality.
Much effort is involved. Reviewing submittals to ensure products and systems are in compliance. Answering questions big and small. Reviewing costs for changes. Reviewing requests for payment. Documenting construction as-built and opining on its compliance with the contract documents. Coordinating with designers, manufacturers,
fabricators, and installers. And, traveling to and from construction sites.
Since it involves people, the process has varying levels of efficiency resulting from the communication skills of the participants, their data collection, and their data management. Varying kinds of software are implemented to assist. Most parties of a construction contract have their own software which they use and may expect or demand others to use.
Join us as we discuss these issues with a panel of construction administrators as they discuss these and other issues as they bring dreams to reality.

Use it for the end of your lunch time presentations. It is a series of slides developed by Chapter Leaders to introduce attendees to CSI and the Baltimore Chapter.
Charted in 1959, the Baltimore Chapter CSI is one of over 130 Chapters of the Construction Specifications Institute. The mission of CSI is to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance.
Founded in 1948, CSI is a national association of more than 9,500 volunteers, including specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners, and others who are experts in building construction and the materials used therein. They are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information through:
A diversified membership base of allied professionals involved in the creation and management of the built environment.
Continuous development and transformation of standards and formats.
Education and certification of professionals to improve project delivery processes.
Creation of practice tools to assist users throughout the facility life-cycle.
