Program Overview
Our program, It’s Lonely At the Top: Building a Successful Team with the Owner, takes a 360° view of a project and focuses on best practices for building a successful project team and how to address the inevitable challenges that arise. Topics include:
  • project delivery: who’s using what, and the implications for your project
  • public private partnerships (PPP)
  • effectively assessing risk and negotiating contract and subcontract clauses
  • construction financing and insurance/bonding
  • tips and best practices in proactively addressing delays and disputes as the owner
  • effective dispute resolution tactics and technical considerations when facing the owner
  • grappling with corruption in procurement and construction ethics and evolving practices
We are also honored to host a special plenary featuring a conversation with The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, who was the 17th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, the first woman to hold this position, the longest serving Chief Justice in Canadian history and a co-author of The Canadian Law of Architecture and Engineering.

Beyond the Program
But there is MORE! Stay right in the heart of the city at the LeCentre Sheraton Montreal Hotel, steps from historic sites, the Underground City, charming Old Town, and the nearby vistas of Mount Royal.  Take advantage of the favorable exchange rate for great shopping on nearby Saint Catherine Street.  Join your colleagues at the celebrated Windsor Station for a Welcome Reception soirée!
