This course will build on the General or Introduction to Project Management Course by focusing on the Construction Phase. The basic concept of the triple constraints of scope, schedule, and budget will be clarified for projects subject to regulations and procedures of the funding agency, often the FHWA. These regulations and procedures result in milestones and approvals that constrain the schedule. The course will follow the usual project management sequence of initiation, planning, executing and closing and will combine lectures, ADOT experts, and student in-class activities.

The course, which will be presented in five, four-hour sessions will cover: relations to preconstruction, project delivery systems, contracting methods, pre- and post-bid activities, partnering, submittals, the change order process, costs and project controls, claims avoidance and disputes, scheduling, human resources and communications, risks and responsibilities, public involvement, and project records and closeout. Class activities include negotiations, changes, and communications.
