Construction Layout is a specialized branch of the engineering/surveying profession's scope of services that's particularly trouble-prone. Horror stories abound: back-charges for items staked in error; urgent requests for layout that wreck your firm's scheduling; client dissatisfaction; the requirement for highly skilled, experienced personnel; challenging geometric computations from unfamiliar plans…
Summarized from decades of diverse experience come practical horse-sense tips, specific procedures, and helpful instruction on how to navigate the maze of policies, procedures, relationships, proposals, contract negotiations and actual performance of this service – a professional activity with the potential to generate financial prosperity or catastrophic losses.
True stories relating the instructor’s real-life experiences (some quite humbling) increase retention of the material presented. Topics available for presentation and discussion include: establishing and preserving necessary control points; layout techniques; required documentation, checking, and redundancy; selection, care and adjustment of equipment; report and sketch requirements; contract issues and considerations; payment schedules; bidding techniques; essential record keeping and CYA strategies; proposal writing, design/build team functions, safety, ethics, and more.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
