Construction Management / Project Management - the Owner's Agent

Construction Management / Project Management Services (CM/PM Services)

Typically the construction industry includes three parties:

  • an owner
  • a designer (architect or engineer)
  • the builder (typically a general contractor.)

Traditionally, there are two contracts between these parties. The first contract is the owner-designer contract, which involves planning, design, and construction administration. The second contract is the owner-contractor contract, which involves construction. An indirect, third-party relationship exist between the designer and the contractor due to these two contracts.

A better business model replaces the traditional relationship with a blended team:

  • owner-designer
  • owner-builder, and
  • owner-construction project manager (CPM)

The CM/PM company becomes a non-biased party engaged in the project to act as an advisor to the owner. The new team member brings stability to the team. The CM/PM supports the designer and builder - as needed. The construction manager's role is to provide:

  • construction advice to the designer, on the owner's behalf,
  • design advice to the constructor, again on the owner's behalf, and
  • other advice as necessary

When a disagreement arises between the designer and builder, the Construction Project Manager provides independent advice to the Owner based on the project's need.

Our CM/PM Services are independent third-party services. For each engagement we mobilize selected resources based on the project requirements. Our staff’s extensive experience provides well rounded professionals who understand the entire project delivery process. We understand when special attention is needed and we support the project so the team committments can be maintained.

This process is tuned to satisfy the special requirements for:

  • public agencies
  • airports and sea ports
  • hospitals
  • school districts
  • government projects
  • environmental remediation projects
