The CSI Cincinnati Chapter’s “Preparing Effective Construction Documents” program is presented in conjunction with The Academy at AIA Cincinnati.
This program has been designed to provide a comprehensive overview for anyone who writes, interprets, enforces, or manages construction documents.
Architects at all levels of experience will learn how to consistently prepare the most effective specifications possible for any project type, understand the roles and relationships of all project participants, and improve communication among all members of the design and construction team.
Students who successfully complete this course will return to their firm fully equipped to lead the effort to minimize change orders, reduce errors and omissions, and mitigate risk through effective coordination of the contract documents.
The program is divided into three 12-hour courses. Each course consists of four 3-hour classes. Courses are offered once per year, as follows:
