Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR)

CMAR为传统的设计 – 出价 – 建造过程提供了一种经济高效的替代方案。 CMAR将通过缩短建设项目的时间节省您的资金。

Construction management at Risk is an innovative approach to construction project delivery. CMAR presents a cost-effective alternative to the traditional design-bid-build process. The CMAR will save your money by reducing the time in your construction project.

Role of the CM at Risk

Under a construction management-at-risk approach, the property owner or agency selects a contractor to consult based the contractor’s previous experience and fees, rather than a bid. This shift in approach stems from the recognition that specialist subcontractors take on a significant role during construction, and the consulting contractor brings an expert understanding of how that impacts a project. The consulting contractor provides several functions during the design phase, including constructability reviews, estimates and even product specifics to aid in developing cleaner designs. The property owner and the consulting contractor settle on a fixed price for the project, called a guaranteed maximum price. Once an agreement is struck, the consulting contractor transitions to the role of general contractor and construction begins.
