CANCELED March 5, 2020
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)

Next offering TBD.


The project is designed, estimated, and sold. Now what?

Many project problems originate during the transfer from sales to production. Other problems occur due to poor project preparation. Marcus VandeVliet will show you how to make the transfer smooth and the preparation complete. The result is less wasted man hours, more projects completed on time, and higher profit margins– as well as a dramatically improved customer experience, leading to more referrals and repeat business.

This class is especially good for business owners, supervisors, and foremen.

Topics covered will include:

  • The transfer from sales to production;
  • Project scheduling;
  • Preconstruction meetings;
  • Material handling;
  • Field project management; and
  • Production job costing.
