Is Perfection Possible in Building Design and Construction?  Join ALA for an Informative Webinar.

Join us for a special webinar where we will dive into business issues that can dramatically impact the success of your firm. Clark Davis will present an update on "Managing Uncertainty", the research that was conducted by McGraw Hill Construction and released as McGraw Hill SmartMarket Report. Clark will present the findings from this report on typical sources and costs of project uncertainty, tools for educating project teams, planning and budgeting guidance (i.e. establishing meaningful contingencies!) and information about best practices that can improve the industry's performance. We will review the research into the question, "is perfection possible in building design and construction?". You won't want to miss this program!  ALA members will have the opportunity to contribute to this important initiative.

Participants will:
1. Learn the results of unique research about project uncertainty factors, owner expectations, and ways to improve project performance – and learn how to apply these lessons in practice.
2. Receive the new Project Planning Guide for Owners and Project Teams and understand how to use it in launching new client relationships and projects.
3. Learn about the Contingency Calculator for better project budget planning – and how to apply it for improved project outcomes.
4. Learn about the new Managing Uncertainty database, its value for owners and architects, and how to contribute to this current initiative.
