The Construction Management process allows the owner to select a Construction Manager (CM) to share construction knowledge during initial stages of design. The construction manager (CM) acts as a third leg to assist the owner and designer during the conceptual design phase with value-added information.
During construction, the construction manager (CM) directs the trade contractors and manages the budget, the schedule, scope of work changes and request for payment, and assures the adherence to the contract documents. Because the construction manager (CM) works as a professional advisor, the CM remains an ally and agent of the owner and designer, giving unbiased information and directing the trade contractors throughout the design and construction of the project. Construction management partners can save time, bypass general contractor markups and fees, and pass direct bid savings onto you.
