An opportunity to optimize price, quality and schedule.
Construction management is broader and more cost-effective than bid-build. By getting involved earlier in the project life cycle,
we can work with your design team on key decisions that improve the
project. This creates opportunities to optimize the three main
parameters governing any project – price, quality and schedule – giving
you exactly the facility you want.
Construction management projects are usually based on proposal
calls. You select the construction manager based on each candidate's
people, qualifications, relevant experience, track record of success,
Project planning typically will be largely complete when the
construction manager gets started. But there are still fundamental
decisions ahead, including materials and construction methods. Varying
materials – steel vs. concrete, for example – and methods – pre-cast vs.
cast-in-place – will have different costs, take varying amounts of
time to execute, and result in more or less durable structures.
Long-term life cycle costing also needs to be taken into consideration.
Our long track record of success and diversified experience allow Graham to provide options on every aspect of your
project. You'll see meaningful alternatives, allowing you to create the
particular balance of cost, quality and time that meets your unique
needs for the project.
- People – For their required knowledge of
alternative materials, methods and structures, and what these offer the
project's client in terms of costs, quality and delivery time; and
- Knowledge of costs – This is key to providing realistic alternatives and accurate estimates.
A construction management contract lets you evaluate options more clearly and establish cost certainty earlier than under bid-build.
When coupled with the right project delivery partner, it can save you
time, reduce materials and quality risks, and cut down on costly
changes during execution. By getting Graham's construction experts
involved earlier, construction management can lower your project's
ultimate life-cycle costs.
