Jim Colegrove, Managing Partner, spoke about tenant improvements and the types of information collected before moving forward with a perspective client. Thad Lawrence, VP of Preconstruction Services discussed the different types of contract methods, as well as emerging technology in the construction industry. Dimitri Mihaloliakos, VP of Estimating discussed the risks and rewards of bidding projects, materials and the nuances of getting a bid right! John Travassos, VP of Operations discussed staying on schedule and on budget and Kevin Burke, President and CEO discussed the history of Burke and the changes that have occurred in the construction industry in the last 20 years.

The class concluded with a tour of the Credit One Headquarters. Did you know they have their own state-of-the-art bistro and Tier III data center? The class content was very informative and well received.
