SMA P&E Workshop is a two-day, intense event taking in two tracks. On day one, every participant is involved in a detailed conversation about best purchasing practices in terms of specifications, base house vs. option inclusions, trade contract scopes of work, and material supply agreements. Also on day one, we delve into the best practice pre-construction process, the purchase order system, and setting up a purchasing database to allow for easier estimating and whole house ordering.
On day two, the agenda is divided into two main sections. Section one is for learning base estimating skills. This section will be led by SMA’s own estimating guru Jason French, as we will perform a take-off on a full house and learn technique, formulas and software available to ensure an omission free estimate.
Section two covers the purchasing professional’s skills of negotiation and the management savvy needed to set up and run a world class P&E department. Topics include training on leadership, personal and organizational time management skills, rebates and discounts and motivational systems for the P&E department.
All workshops start at 8:30 AM each day and end at 3:00 PM on the last day of the program. SMA Inner Circle member price = $599 for first attendee, $399 for second and beyond.
