Shorter Process with Greater Assurances
This process shortens the timeline for design, bid and build and assures the owner at an earlier stage of the capital cost that they will incur for the completion of the construction portion of their project. The pre-construction stage is critical in this CMAR process because the early contractual involvement of the General Contractor minimizes future construction issues, and exposes areas where contingencies should be established controlling future cost escalations and change orders.
This process integrates the Owner, Architect, and Contractor at the earliest possible stage in the project while still allowing the owner to have control of each phase of the development.
