He acts as an expert in litigation, and as an arbitrator and mediator in disputes. In seeking solutions to problems in buildings, he has used teams of professionals, from inside and outside the HVAC industry.

    His extensive experience in the investigation of failed buildings because of cost, time, indoor air quality, failure to meet the brief and misrepresentation of intentions provide a strong basis for his work. Founded the Teambuild competition in 1990.

    Presentation Overview

    What is the relationship between leadership, management and administration? Management theory, based on engineering principles but relevant to any business. Principles of investigation, analyses and decision making which support leadership and management are described. These principles will then be applied to a typical building project from conception to completion. Reference will be made to areas where cash flow is eroded and legal risk arises. The fuzzy edge between professions must be addressed.

          Please RSVP at by noon, Friday April 6th.

    Fees are $25 for those who RSVP by deadline and $30.00 at the door.
