A Lack of quality in construction is the consequence of disorganised working processes, unsafe structures, delays, over-spent budgets and disputes in construction contracts. As a result, clients often seek a consultant to manage some of the procedures in the construction process. This habit decreases the risks to both the client and the contractor in terms of quality and safety in construction projects

To address the above issues, EuroCham is hosting a breakfast talk on Quality in Construction - How Contract Management Makes the Difference!

On that day, our panel of experts will explain what is contract management, and how it correlates with the quality of construction.

So join our Breakfast talk series to understand how effective contract management can guarantee high quality construction in the Kingdom!
