Construction Manager at Risk (CM at Risk) represents an alternate mode of construction contracting where the owner retains a contractor, through competitively bidding the project, to provide pre-construction services during the project design period and to act as a general contractor to construct the project after the design is completed, or as the design progresses to completion.
Echo Pacific finds construction manager at risk a mode of contracting increasingly popular amongst clients. With key features such as fixed construction costs and shared liability between the owner and construction manager, CM at Risk is worth considering. To further aid in the CM at Risk process, Echo Pacific uses cutting edge construction management software to insure maximum efficiency across the entire construction process.
With Echo Pacific selected as the Construction Manager early in the design phase, we work closely with your architect to examine alternate materials, systems, and equipment for cost, quality and availability. We then perform constructability reviews and offer value engineering suggestions. This early coordination fosters collaboration and focuses the entire team on finding the best solutions for your construction project. We competitively bid the various bid packages representing the construction work required to complete the Project and determine a guaranteed maximum price for construction.
Features CM at Risk are:
+ Transfer of responsibility for construction, and some risk, from owner to Construction Manager
+ Construction cost known and fixed during design
+ CM has total control of construction and all subcontractors
+ Construction may start before design completion, reducing project schedule
