DMWBE Training

Learn How to Be Successful working for a General Contractor on a public works project.

Three day class: January 24, January 31, February 7

Heavy civil construction is a demanding business. Night work, lane closures, subway track shutdowns and tight deadlines are challenging in and of themselves. Add on safety protocols, procuring supplies and keeping up with paperwork requirements, and one can understand why construction – especially public works construction – can be such a daunting undertaking.

The course is designed for DMWBE firms that work on heavy civil projects who are signed to a union agreement or are willing to work under a project labor agreement, or are interested in learning more about how to work union. It covers items such as negotiating with suppliers, understanding site safety plans, conducting a job hazard analysis, properly developing project submittals and understanding union agreements and PLAs.
