MCAA Conference Focuses On Project Performance
September 3, 2003
Nearly 250 people attended the Mechanical Contractors Association of America’s Project Performance Conference in Philadelphia titled “Productivity -- Beyond the Basics,” which focused on intensive project management education. New at the conference was a case study and solutions session, developed by MCAA President Tom Williams, which allowed contractors to merge the different elements of project management together. Workshops on project management techniques and strategies — such as change orders, project documentation, jobsite workflow and communication — complemented the case study work.
