Superior CES General ContractingCONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

The architect and the construction manager each act as the owner’s agent in the Construction Management as Agent (CM Agency) delivery method. Here, the trade contracts are held by the owner rather than the construction manager. With the CM Agency approach, the owner is responsible for procuring all trade contracts for the construction phase, which the CM can coordinate.

Best suited for larger new or renovation projects, here the CM is responsible exclusively to the owner and acts in the owner's interests at every stage of the project. Comprehensive management of every stage of the project, beginning with the original concept and project definition, optimizes the level of comprehensive services and advocacy to the benefit of owners from construction management.

A project using this approach typically has two phases: preconstruction (concurrent with the architect’s design), and construction. In the preconstruction phase, the CM provides input to the architect and owner regarding cost estimates, scheduling, constructability, value engineering and general insight. During construction, the CM oversees (but does not “own”) various trade contractors on behalf of the owner—but the various trade contracts are actually held by the owner.
