So you’ve got your plans, secured your funding, finished the entitlement process, and now you are finally ready to build! With millions of investor dollars on the line and a high interest loan hanging over your head, you know how important it is to deliver on time. If only you knew more about the construction process to understand and mitigate the risks…


Please join the ULI Young Leaders’ Real Estate 101 Committee on Monday, November 20 for a discussion with experts in the construction industry. The program will feature a brief, high level overview of construction by Steven Teitelbaum, adjunct professor at American University’s Kogod School of Business.
