Construction management evolved as a professional practice distinct from design and construction in the early 1960’s in response to increasing complexities in the construction industry. Today’s construction projects are complex, risky and the building process has become extremely demanding. It takes savvy professional talent to orchestrate all of the means and methods needed to accomplish this challenge. This is the essence of construction management.
A major construction effort is a complex and risk-laden venture. It involves the expenditure of a large sum of capital as well as the application of technologies in which only a few are expert. It requires the Owner to do business with several groups of people whose interests are often conflicting with Owner’s interests.
A Construction Manager provides the Owner with specialized knowledge, experience and resources to navigate through the complexities of a construction project. Construction management services may be tailored to satisfy the needs of the sophisticated Owner. The CM adds value by providing the resources and expertise needed to manage quality, cost, schedule, scope and risks associated with design and construction to help the Owner achieve its objectives.
