Advanced Work Packaging: Can It Work on My Job?


Duration:60 minutes

Earn: 1 PDH; 1 AIA LU/Elective; 0.1 IACET CEU*



With research showing field productivity boosted by 25% and installed project cost reduced by up to 10%, Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is more than an industry buzzword. It’s catching on as a successful project management approach based on project thinking with the end in mind, emphasizing construction sequencing in driving upfront planning. Megaproject owners were early adopters of AWP, but more owners now require it from contractors before bidding on a project. 

Learning Objectives - After viewing this webinar, attendees should be able to:

  1. Describe the principles of Advanced Work Packaging in construction.
  2. Explain the steps needed to get started with AWP on your project or site.
  3. Determine how to scale AWP approaches for different project size and type.
  4. Identify key technology tools to support AWP and how to adapt it for field use.
Sign up and learn how to set the right tone on your project, and execute work packages with dazzling efficiency.
