Nov 2020 Lunch Meeting PPRBD

Save the date!  A crowd favorite returns to ASHRAE!

PPRBD will present their annual round table discussion at Pikes Peak ASHRAE on Nov 10.  This will be an opportunity to hear about how to best navigate PPRBD under COVID conditions, and you could probably talk them into answering your questions about any code topics or plan review best practices that interest you.  While our guest speakers will appear via Teams, this will be a live discussion and they will be available for Q&A.

11:30a – arrival, nametags, food is available; can jump in via Teams for virtual attendees

11:45a – announcements and welcome

11:55a – start presentation by our featured speakers, virtually via Teams (Teams invite will be sent separately, soon)

We are looking forward to getting together.

Feb 2020 Lunch Meeting The Ethics of Disputes: Managing the Construction Claim Process by Tim Wentz

Claims have long been identified as one the most significant issues that face contractors, owners and architect/engineers alike.

This presentation investigates the common causes of claims and then builds on that knowledge to generate common sense strategies to avoid claims and manage risk.
