Managing development projects takes a village. Its complicated and risky. What can you do to ensure successful finishes, stay on time, and keep your team focused and working collaboratively? How do you integrate competing interests and meet a budget? Furthermore, the broader goals of community development are intricately related to what takes place on a construction site.

Jennifer Pinck, President and Founder of Pinck & Co will lead a training specially designed for the project manager. The focus will be on defining the role and key tasks of a project manager, especially during construction, relationships and how to make the team work as a team, and what the most important things to do during design to make construction successful are.

Participants will learn:

  • The role of the Project Manager during construction
  • What do you do during design process to make construction successful
  • How to build relationships and how to make the entire team work like a team
  • How to comply with Laws, Regulations and other Conditions

Community development organizations undertake major projects to promote economic prosperity, housing security, and other objectives to underpin the communities in which they operate. The pressure to meet budget and get the best value per square foot is intense; the competition amongst contractors to get and make money on these projects is also intense. The unique nature of the construction industry is one that has established a history and reputation of contractors taking shortcuts in paying wages and adhering to safety regulations. These pressures noted above combined with the bad actors in the industry can result in outcomes which contravene the objectives of the non-profit, affordable housing, and community development organizations

There are policies and practices which we will discuss to ensure that the worst practices do not occur and that the community economic objectives are met.

We encourage project managers, real estate directors, and executive directors to come.
