David A. Ericksen will present a National webinar for American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) on Thursday, February 8, 2018.

In the context of design and construction, coordination is a frequently cited concept and obligation, but it’s seldom reduced to a clear and strategic definition or process.

In reality, coordination is a complex sequence of communication via multiple stakeholders, with both timing and content inherently dependent upon others over whom the stakeholders have no direct control or authority.

Join David Ericksen to identify and establish the appropriate content, sequence, and criteria for project coordination and then apply them across five distinct areas of coordination:

  • owner/designer
  • designer/”other” professionals
  • prime/sub
  • designer/contractor-design-builder
  • designer/public official

You’ll draw on real-world experiences to build toward a baseline and advanced model for success in all five areas. You’ll also:

  • Understand coordination as a multi-layered activity with varied participants and objectives.
  • Identify the core expectations and objectives of design coordination on five distinct levels.
  • Develop fundamental coordination processes and tools to apply specifically for each level or as the bases across all five levels.
