How General Contractors Assemble Project Teams

(and how your firm can be included)

Do you wonder how General Contractors choose sub-consultants? Do you want to find out how your firm can position itself to work with some of the largest General Contractors in Hawaii?

We’ve assembled local construction contractors to share with us what they look for in sub-consultants when forming a project team.  We will discuss their procurement process, along with other insights into the qualities and expertise they are seeking from their design teams.

This moderated panel is a great opportunity for firm leaders, project managers, marketers and business developers to learn the selection process from some of Hawaii’s major contractors.
