This webinar has been cancelled. Please contact EBC for any questions.

In 2017 and 2018, attendees at the EBC Annual Coastal Construction Conferences benefited from lessons learned on a variety of coastal construction projects and were able to take those lessons back to their offices to apply to their projects. The attendees reported that the significant benefit of that program was the focus on presentations from contractors and owners.

Often, professionals working on the development and permitting of coastal projects do not get to experience the construction phase of their projects, or more importantly, receive the benefits of lessons learned. The realities of constructing projects are often different from the documents and drawings produced by engineers and consultants.  Without the benefit of this knowledge, lessons learned cannot be applied to future projects.

This EBC Ocean and Coastal Resources program will again bring together coastal construction contractors, consultants, and project owners to provide case studies of recently completed coastal construction projects. Presentations will address how project development and permitting professionals can consider the feasibility of construction when drafting plans and securing permits and the importance of open collaboration with qualified contractors throughout design and implementation.  This working knowledge will improve the ability of projects to be effectively designed, permitted, and implemented.

This EBC program will be invaluable for coastal development consultants and agency permit reviewers to hear directly from contractors attend to get some “boots on the ground” experience.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this meeting (3.5 training contact hours). Please send an email to EBC staff ([email protected]) following the conclusion of the program to receive a certificate.
