We were proud to provide CONTRACTING FOR ENGINEERS class to England, Thims and Miller, Inc. for the second time. We had great attendance and received positive feedback. Thank you ETM for allowing us to engage in is this valuable collaboration.
Petticoat-Schmitt provides a continuing education class called CONTRACTING FOR ENGINEERS for our engineering partners. In addition to providing value to project engineers, we feel this improves the partnership between Petticoat-Schmitt and our engineering team which ultimately benefits our mutual clients. The curriculum informs engineers of the numerous "behind the scenes" issues that impact projects beyond the engineering, plans and specifications. Topics include scheduling, production, soils analysis, constructability issues, dewatering, risk analysis, construction costs and other contractor concerns.
Now in our third year of offering this class, we have experienced positive responses about the information engineers gain from the perspective of project construction which they are not usually exposed. In an effort to make it enjoyable as well, we provide the class as a lunch-and-learn as to minimize time away from the work day, we mix in some "contractor trivia" to keep it lively and all professional engineers in attendance receive 2 hours of continuing education credit.
If you are a civil engineer or a project developer and you have an interest in attending CONTRACTING FOR ENGINEERS, please contact Lori Keller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
