Construction Manager at Risk Training

  • CADsoft Consulting

Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) is a form of project delivery that can minimize risk for all parties involved in a vertical project. From the beginning, the experience, wisdom, creativity and skill of the AE and CMAR firms are combined at the table with the client’s understanding of requirements. Together they command the classic tripod of functional requirements, design and construction. The procedure is more methodical, manageable, predictable and less risky. Minimizing risk means minimizing loss to the client.

Meeting Time: 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

CMAR is attractive to clients, AE’s and CMAR’s because the client makes the selection based on qualifications. When the client is able to hire better CMAR’s who are inclined to maximize their service and their allegiance to the client in order to obtain repeat work and a good reference, everyone wins. Collaboration is a vital element. While CMAR’s provide advice on construction cost and technology during design to keep projects within budget and reduce design problems; AE’s are more involved in the construction process and make recommendations that are helpful to the project’s success.
