FEATURED PRESENTATION

Bridging the Gap: Preventing conflict between engineers and contractors


It doesn’t have to be this way. We can do better!

It seems so straight forward. Engineers and Contractors are teammates with the common goal of improving a property. It doesn’t matter if it’s a renovation, new build, or an addition, both parties are working towards the same end. So why is there so much friction? Why is there such animosity?

In this presentation we will explore the causes of conflict between the engineering and contracting sides, as well as examples of common mistakes made by both parties that increase the likelihood of a project turning sour. At the end of the presentation you will be able to better understand the other persons' position and rational as well as make small changes to your own processes that will make for smoother interactions and a smoother project.

Nobody wants to leave a meeting upset, lose money on a project, or embarrass themselves in front of the client. When you establish common ground, and better understand the people you interact with daily, you are freer to focus on the bottom line.
