Construction management (CM) is a professional service that utilises Construction Management techniques to oversee the planning, design, and construction of a project, from its beginning to completion. 

In its traditional form CM involves - 

  • Architect and Construction Manager providing pre-construction services, as a team.
  • Supply chain (contractors) selected based on qualifications and fee if desired.
  • Choice and control of the contractors/ sub-contractors.
  • “One Team” approach, aligned to delivering your project!
  • No additional Owner on-site representation required.

A professional Construction Manager will:

  • Serve as an objective, experienced Client’s Representative to protect the Client’s and project’s best interests.
  • Reduce overall project costs. Savings include better competitive bidding, contract negotiation, value engineering, reduced change, reduction in time, and elimination of unnecessary scope and cost.
  • Centralise communication, acting as project liaison to fully and seamlessly integrate all participants.
  • Advise the Client on retention of the best qualified and appropriate project team/ contractors.
  • Enhance quality control to reduce potential for defects and poor workmanship.
  • Provide realistic and reliable budgets.
  • Optimise and accelerate the design and construction schedule.
  • Provide cost effective document controls of all project participants.
  • Protect the Owner from unnecessary liability.
  • Provide management expertise, applying resources wherever needed.

 What projects does CM work best on?

Construction management can be used for any project. However, in our experience, it is best suited to industrial and commercial projects, self delivery of residential projects, modular construction projects and complex projects such as those which require plant and equipment that may be more costly than the actual building being delivered. 

Ultimately if you require speed, flexibility, direct control, influence over quality or will require specialist trade contractors, construction management is a great fit
