Construction Management in Residential Construction
With the increasing incidence of design-build contractual relationships, construction management has been gaining popularity. In some types of construction, design-build has overtaken design-bid-build or competitive bid, as the preferred method.

The role of a construction manager is to provide planning expertise and professionally manage the Owner's project while protecting them from risk and unforeseen problems. The Construction Manager provides support to the Owner to capture opportunities for efficiency, quality and cost savings, while ensuring delivery of the project on time and within budget. A qualified Construction Manager who is an independent Owner’s Representative, will help them determine how best to accomplish the project goals.

Construction management is a professional system designed to facilitate planning, coordination and control of a project from inception to completion. Typical construction projects have many stakeholders, with each team member focused on their particular contractual role. A qualified Construction Manager holds the process together, filling in managerial expertise where required, controlling budgets, initiating cost savings ideas, managing information, and ensuring communication.

Our goal is to provide management expertise to benefit the Owner, by supporting the Builder and design professionals in a manner that everyone performs successfully and is pleased with the results.
