Construction Management At-Risk
The construction management-at-risk (CMAR) delivery model has proven beneficial for a wide range of new builds and retrofitting projects. Compared to design-bid-build and other more traditional arrangements, CMAR can provide faster turnaround times, better cost control and improved overall transparency and communication.
In a construction management at-risk project, the builder acts as a consultant to the owner in the development and design phases and serves as the equivalent of a general contractor during the construction phase. This allows for greater input early on in the process — once construction begins, the CMAR firm is well aware of the project’s needs, timelines and technical details, as they have worked collaboratively with the Owner to understand project goals.
