2020 MCAA Change Orders Productivity Primer 292x350The 2020 edition of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America’s (MCAA) highly regarded construction management publication, Change Orders, Productivity, Overtime—A Primer for the Construction Industry, has received SMACNA’s full endorsement. SMACNA endores the contents of the publication as being applicable to the sheet metal and air conditioning trades, which sustain impacts to the same level, and of the same types, as the mechanical piping and plumbing trades. MCAA will make the publication available to SMACNA members at the MCAA member rate.

The publication has become a standard in the construction industry and is widely relied upon by mechanical and other specialty contractors, attorneys in construction practices, and consultants.

In a new chapter, lead author Paul L. Stynchcomb, CCM, PSP, CFCC of Vero Construction Consultants Corp., discusses the essential concept of sharing the CPM schedule in its native form between all of the major trades on a construction project.
