Managing your Consultants – Seminar

27 February 2019

Quigg Golden Belfast, 18-22 Hill Street, Cathedral Quarter, Belfast, BT1 2LA

15:30 - 17:30

Frequently the consultant on a project will be the first outside member of the contract team to be procured and will be involved until well after completion; having a major impact on the outcome of the project as a whole.

We are seeing more and more “Professional Services” procurements rolling Design and Project Management services into single contracts.

This has obvious benefits for an employer but what are the draw backs and how do you manage the project manager?

This seminar will outline best practices for procuring and managing consultants from the employer’s viewpoint.

Topics covered

The seminar is designed to provide a brief introduction to procurement procedures, contract choice and best practice for managing consultants on construction projects.

  • Advantages/disadvantages of various contract types
  • Assessing the quality of consultants
  • Combined vs separate Design and Project Management
  • Industry best practice management for contracts with consultants
  • Insurances, bonds etc. for consultants

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at anyone who engages or manages consultants to provide design and/or project management services.
