WebEd: Addressing Process: Formal vs Informal Communication on a Jobsite

All WebEd times are in EST

Member Price: FREE
Non Member Price: FREE 


"Every RFI should be a confirming RFI” is the advice given to every entry level engineer. Words like these speak to the expense of documenting formal communication on a jobsite. Per a 2014 Navigant report, RFIs cost an average of $1080 to review and respond! In this webinar, we will explore the roles of informal and formal communication on a job site to show how informal communication can move a project forward in an efficient way and reduce the cost of formal documentation.
