CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT: Construction management is a delivery approach that involves the contractor during the design activities. With this approach, the Owner will bring the contractor on board at the same time as the design professionals. The contractor is responsible to help manage the design and coordinate every portion of the project process. The Construction Management approach reduces the time it takes to get to the construction phase and assures costs is within the Owners budget.

GENERAL CONTRACTING: General contracting is a construction delivery approach that starts normally after the design has been completed. The Owner or his agent will issue the documents for competitive bids to various general contractors for the purposes of securing a lump sum price to manage and build the project for the scope indicated in the bid documents.

DESIGN/BUILD: Design/Build is a construction delivery approach similar to the CM approach except the Owner will award the Design and Construction to a single source. The Design/Build contractor will be responsible to employ the design professionals best suited for the project. This approach significantly reduces the design and construction time frames and simplifies the line of communication in a streamlined approach.

 

PROGRAM MANAGEMENT: Program management is a construction delivery approach that can offer the widest range of services to an Owner. The program manager will typically be involved from day one with the Owner collaborating to define, organize, and coordinate the Owner’s requirements. This approach is most beneficial for large complex projects.
