Today, many Milwaukee WI construction companies use a system known as design-bid-build. It works very well in some cases, but it may be better for the project owner to take advantage of construction management or CM services. Here are some important reasons to consider CM.
What are CM Services?
With a typical design-bid-build system, the owner places the project up for bid after the architect has formed the plans and they have been approved. Next, the job is awarded to the lowest bidder (usually), and then the construction phase can begin. With Milwaukee WI construction management services, the contractor is there to provide professional advice before the design process takes place and during the designing phase.
The CM company carefully examines important issues like equipment, materials, and availability of materials. They keep the customer’s interest in mind at all times. The CM is constant communication with the customer and the designer.
The customer or client has someone on his/her side during the entire process. The CM offers objective point of views and opinions. This helps to keep the client from making decisions based on emotion.
Everyone involved in the development and construction process needs to be on the same page all the time. When you have an experienced CM, everyone has a single point of contact. The customer does not have to talk to the designer, builder, subcontractor, or other people involved in the project. The CM is there to facilitate communications.
The architect may work out a budget, but things can change during a construction project. The Milwaukee WI construction manager is always concerned about meeting budget during each phase of the project. He makes sure all invoices are accurate and confirmed and is constantly aware of risk management issues. The client receives regular budget reports with explanations and advice on coming in at or under budget.
