To maintain project schedules and costs, mechanical contractors must purchase major equipment and materials as soon as they receive the notice to proceed.

  • The importance of ordering materials early to maintaining a project’s schedule and costs
  • When to bring this matter to the attention of the general contractor and the owner
  • Components of a written payment procedure
  • The advantages of the mechanical contractor controlling where equipment purchased in advance is stored
