The Subcontractor in DB – Roles, Responsibility and Successful Timelines

Join us while we talk to a Mechanical, and Electrical and a Framing Sub-Contractor about their role in the design build process. What is their role as part of the construction team? When is the best time to integrate them? What drawings do they collaborate with and how can they help the design team achieve their goals. The panelists will do short presentations and then we will open for questions from the public. This is a virtual event via Zoom.
