Learn how to read contracts, when to sign, how to gather information that applies directly to your profitability based on the history of the general contractor and owner, and much more. See what this seminar covers in the list below. . . . .
Contracts received from many general contractors have become a joke. Basically, the following is the meaning of these so-called contracts nowadays: "provide everything we demand of you, and we don't have to pay you. After all, we are a team, a partnership". Yeah right! Why are we in this business - let me think - for a profit - to provide a product we can be proud of? So how do we do that when next month we are going out of business? Something has to change, and education, I believe, is the answer.
DMC Millwork Consultation provides seminars on understanding and negotiating contracts with general contractors at your location. This is a "must attend" class for anyone in our industry who has had difficulty with contracts and the repercussions that occur when you sign a contract that is far less than fair. It is also a must for project managers.
The class is open to all of your employees for the same low price. Since it is held at your location the price per person is far lower than sending someone to a seminar venue - and the price gets lower with the more that attend. You will also receive our DMC Estimating and Project Management program in Excel for free. It has 30 different reports. Normal cost for this is around $3,000.00.
