With the current skill shortage in the industry it is unavoidable that companies need to invest in their personnel. The provision of a structured continual professional development programme that will keep them up to date with contractual and commercial matters should form a central part of this.  Regular training will help to avoid fatal errors and ensure proper management of contracts and their associated risks.

Elemental can offer tailored seminars and workshops to address any construction contractual or commercial issue that your company may consider appropriate. Examples of training topics would include:

  • Knowing your contract;
  • Key provisions of the Standard Forms – including NEC, JCT, Public Works Contracts or bespoke terms;
  • Payment provisions of the Act;
  • Understanding Adjudication;
  • Presenting Time and Money Claims;
  • Practical Completion and dealing with defects.

Alongside general training requirements Elemental provide a mentoring facility for any of your personnel who wish to undertake various professional qualifications including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CInstCES). As we are panel members for these professional bodies we can help structure and deliver either your company or individual training requirements allowing your people to achieve industry leading professional qualifications.
