Construction Management Agency

Construction Management Agency is a delivery method that combines preconstruction services with open bidding.

What is Construction Management Agency?

Construction Management Agency (CMA) is frequently used in the public sector when clients have specific competitive bidding requirements, but still desires the early collaboration and construction solutions offered by the CMA. The CMA acts as a managing consultant throughout the design and construction process. All work is competitively bid to qualified subcontractors with the client holding all contracts.

"Our goal is to be a good contractor. We don’t have to be the biggest, but we do have to be one of the best to serve customers and do the right thing."
