The business of electrical contracting is as challenging as ever. Projects often move at a rapid pace with minimal design documentation and less experienced managers. Identifying the “warning signs” on a project and understanding the tools that can help manage the documentation process is important. This session will arm contractors with best practices, standard tools and processes to properly document and make notifications of contractual changes.
