An entire construction management class from New York’s Utica College visited the site of Rivers Casino and Resort at Mohawk Harbor for a firsthand perspective on project delivery. Team members from DMA and contractor Norwood-LeChase provided an overview of the project and shared a detailed look at specific processes and delivery methods. The presentation included a look at contractor RFP and selection processes, scheduling techniques, subcontractor project management, and project challenges ranging from logistics to tight deadlines. Presenters emphasized the importance of a team approach to successful delivery. Rivers Casino and Resort at Mohawk Harbor continues to take shape along the riverfront in Schenectady, New York and is on schedule to open in early 2017.
