The final stages of a project often deliver a disappointing surprise: The profits predicted for the project have evaporated. For contractors, profit fade can prove to be a devastating blow, crippling the ability to book future work and undermining the confidence of sureties and bank lenders. In this special webinar, ENR and its panelists will explore how to trace profit fade to change orders, inflated and unforeseen costs of problems in management and communication. We will ask what the signs are of estimating errors, whether cross-project analysis is worth the effort, how field personnel can accurately measure and report costs and progress and what sureties are most concerned about when it comes to a contractor recognizing revenue.

This course also qualifies for Professional Development Hours (PDH): Submit certificate of completion for PDH credit to your state licensing board. Check your state licensing board for all laws, rules, regulations and continuing education requirements.
