Construction Management

Enhanced teambuilding
You will derive better value from your design and construction team if it functions as a cohesive unit. Even in a linear design-bid-build process, the architect and contractor must work together; however, the contractual relationship provides no incentive for them to work cooperatively in the interest of the project. In a construction management arrangement, the contractor joins the architect in the role of owner’s agent. Both are motivated—and legally bound—to act in the owner’s best interest. The best way to do this is to collaborate on solutions and to proactively raise concerns before they become problems.
