5 Basics for Keeping Communications On-Track

  1. Weekly design meetings
  2. Shared virtual workspace for design documents
  3. Senior leadership that truly understands buying motivations of all parties, constructability, and costs
  4. Experienced conceptual estimator and detailed estimate of cost and schedule with assumptions
  5. Tracking logs for changes, value engineering, questions and other issues driving to closure
