We have experience with all different construction delivery methods, and regardless of which you choose for your project, Nabholz will leverage our financial strength and exceptional management practices for the best outcome for your project.
Construction Manager At-Risk
Also known as CMAR, this delivery method entails a commitment by the construction manager to deliver the project within a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). The construction manager acts as consultant to the owner in the development and design phases (preconstruction phases), but as the equivalent of a general contractor during the construction phase.
The owner manages only one contract with a single point of responsibility. The designer and contractor work together from the beginning, as a team, providing unified project recommendations to fit the owner’s schedule and budget.
Construction Management Agency
This delivery method is also known as Construction Manager as Agent. Project contracts are made between the owner and the trade contractors. The Construction Manager acts as an advisor to the owner for the owner’s management of the contracts.
With the hard bid delivery method, the owner hires a designer/architect to draw up the project plans. After the plans are approved, the owner bids the work out to general contractors. The lowest bidder wins regardless of qualifications.
