Effective Construction Meetings & Meeting Minutes

Construction meetings are an important part of the successful management of construction projects. Regular site meetings on a project with well document minutes can facilitate better communication and produce better results making it more likely that the project will be completed successfully.


Typically, the responsibility of the general contractor, proper meeting minutes of these construction meetings reflect the view of all stakeholders and should be a complete, reliable, and accurate documentation of the current status of the project as well as the next steps, as agreed to by all parties. This however, is not as easy as it sounds. Proper meetings require effective listening, accurate recording, and most importantly, the understanding of the risk involved if an action item is not completed as promised.
