construction manager at risk (cmar)
Our CM projects result in contingency savings, added scope, and early project completion through our ability to openly collaborate with the contractor and the Owner. The CMAR project delivery method provides the Owner and Design Team with the benefits of preconstruction services. In addition, there are advantages of starting construction or procurement processes prior to full completion of the design. The Construction Manager (CM) can bid and subcontract portions of the work at any time, often while design of unrelated portions are not complete, and provide estimates on the remaining portions of the design, completed or not. CMAR may allow design times to be reduced since performance specifications may be used with early agreements on preferred materials, equipment types and other project features.
SHARCHITECTURE has been a leader in CMAR for the past decade. Our firm has assisted many jurisdictions and institutions in establishing their standards and contracts for CMAR delivery.
