CON 101 Course Descripton – How do you get there (a building) from here (an idea)? Construction starts with planning, design, and financing and continues until the structure is ready for occupancy. Tens of thousands of steps are usually required, especially in highly complex buildings, and numerous stakeholders (owners, building users, architects, contractors, subcontractors) are involved. This session will provide an overview of the evolution of a building project with special focus on unique issues related to building on Tribal lands.

CON 102 Course Description – Although Construction 101 is not a pre-requisite this workshop will expand on the concepts reviewed during Construction 101 and apply them to a conceptual case study. The case study will review each phase of the development process which includes planning, architectural design, and construction. For each phase of the development process a panel of experts will illustrate best practices as well as challenges.
