Construction Management at-Risk

The successful delivery of projects using a Construction Management at-Risk process requires a partnership between the owner, architect, and builder. In order to achieve that, we conduct a detailed project kick-off meeting to clearly communicate and acknowledge all project goals and expectations as well as a consensus on our methods of communication and reporting, customizing tools to meet everyone’s individual needs.

What is Construction Management at-Risk?

Construction Management at-Risk (CMAR) is a frequently used delivery method when a client seeks the benefits of shared design and construction expertise early in the design process. Most often, the CMAR uses an open book approach for the subcontractor competitive bidding process. It is also common that a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) is established prior to construction. The client holds separate contracts with the construction manager and the project architect.
