Construction Management (CM) is yet another project delivery method. CM is a method whereby the client retains a construction manager (the CM) to provide certain preconstruction expertise including cost estimating, value engineering, and scheduling and, during the construction phase of the project, coordination of all construction activities.
The CM approach lends itself particularly well to larger projects by setting up a team approach, although it has been effectively used on smaller projects too. The team of Owner – Architect – Construction Manager work together during all project phases to bring success to the project. All team members act as a check and balance on the others to keep the work in progress in line with the project objectives. All team members are motivated to achieve the project’s goals.
Typical CM services include (but are not limited to):
- Defining project goals
- Assisting owner in the architect selection process
- Defining roles and responsibilities of team members
- Drawing review
- Budget analysis
- Cost analysis
- Schedule analysis
- Phasing analysis
- Value engineering analysis
- Scope of work narrative
- Constructability analysis
- Systems analysis
- Project bidding
- Subcontractor prequalification and recommendation
- Owner meetings
- Subcontractor meetings
- Cost reporting
- Phasing execution
- Performing, or arranging for, Inspections
- Punch lists
