the BUILDING solution.
The most attractive benefit of a designer-led CM is cost effectiveness. Our clients have been able to reduce construction costs by eliminating a general contractor’s overhead profit and the cost of a project superintendent employed by the general contractor. When the architect provides CM services, much of the money that would have gone to pay the project management fee can be paid to the architect as compensation for performing the CM services.
Additionally, a designer-led CM is reduction of risk. Our goal is to create a more streamlined design and construction process. This process is comprehensive and clear-cut as our in-house CM team designs the project, prepares construction documents, serves as your advisor and actively solicits bids from a select group of contractors. Contractors are chosen based on past performance and a demonstrated ability to comprehend the project scope, perform the work contracted for, and minimize requests for additional information or increased compensation.
