As the construction manager, Dellbrook | JKS will work on behalf of our client through the design and construction phases of the project. This format helps to establish a team atmosphere where both the design and construction teams work together to attain the client’s project goals regarding quality, schedule, and cost. This contract format also allows for effective participation by the construction manager during the preconstruction phase. The ability for the construction manager to establish budgets and schedules at an early stage greatly aids in the overall management of the project and helps to ensure the client’s goals are met. The construction management format also allows for open lines of communication among the different parts of the team as opposed to the adversarial architect-contractor relationship as seen in traditional contract types. The ability to review the project as a team at an early stage and identify any potential cost, schedule or program issues before the final documents are produced is one of the major advantages over the typical procurement methods.
