Construction Management

A Contractor That Advocates for YOU

At Contour, we excel in Construction Management, offering both CM Agent and CM At-Risk services. As your advocate, we focus exclusively on your interests, ensuring every aspect of your project is managed with precision. Choose us to leverage our expertise in streamlining processes, minimizing risks, and guaranteeing successful project completion.

Construction Management

Have you ever thought about everything that goes into a building project? We have. In fact, it’s all we think about! The two most common forms of construction management are:

  • CM Agent – we operate strictly as the owner’s representative and advocate with no construction work or contracted construction work performed.
  • CM At-Risk – we operate as the owner’s representative and advocate and at the appropriate time we provide a GMP for the construction work or portion of the construction work.

The totality of the construction can be complicated and daunting for most. Our team of skilled construction managers bridges the gap between you (the owner) and all the players involved in your project. We always advocate for your best interests, ensuring that your budget is well-spent, and your vision is realized.

From hiring, securing project entitlements, testing, negotiating low-risk contracts, and contractor qualifications to suggesting money-saving materials and methods, our construction management keeps your best interests in mind from start to finish. Some of the major advantages to construction management project delivery include:

  • Assistance in selecting the most qualified team members.
  • Promotes collaboration and harmony among team players.
  • Removes communication barriers, which reduces delays and cost overruns.
  • Provides a higher level of cost control by defining overhead and profit prior to the project’s start.
  • Invites key suppliers to be part of the design process and gets earlier participation of the trade contractors who will be completing the work.
  • Puts the contractor on the “same side of the table” as the owner and is monetarily incentivized to work at the owner’s best interest.
  • Allows for more flexibility in the design and simplifies the submittal process.
  • Less cost impact to the owner when changes in scope arise.

Contour will be your advocate providing first-class expertise and risk management for your most complex or mission-critical project.

Construction Management Services

In the realm of commercial construction, Construction Management plays a critical role in ensuring projects are delivered successfully. Here’s a breakdown of how our construction management services address key aspects such as schedule, cost, safety, quality, function, and scope:

Schedule Management
Effective construction management involves careful planning to establish a detailed schedule. Critical path methods and other planning techniques are used to ensure timely project completion by sequencing construction operations optimally and anticipating potential delays to maintain project momentum.
Cost Management
Construction managers have the responsibility of developing and supervising the project budget. They utilize cost estimating techniques, manage the allocation of funds, and oversee cash flow throughout the project's lifespan. The primary goal of this financial oversight is to ensure that the project is completed within, or preferably under, the budgeted amount.
Safety Management
A construction manager's core responsibility is to guarantee a safe and secure work environment. This involves conducting safety audits, implementing safety programs, and ensuring compliance with relevant safety regulations and standards to minimize risks on-site.
Quality Management
Quality control is an essential aspect of construction management. It involves overseeing the construction activities to ensure they align with the project's quality standards. This includes conducting regular site inspections, reviewing materials, and ensuring adherence to design specifications to meet the owner's quality expectations.
Function and Scope Management
Construction managers collaborate closely with project owners, architects, and contractors to ensure that the project's functional requirements and scope are thoroughly defined and followed. This collaboration helps to maintain the integrity of the original design and functionality envisioned by the project stakeholders.

Construction Management involves integrating various project management methodologies and using advanced software to effectively track and manage the project elements, ensuring adherence to planned scope, timeline, and budget while upholding safety and quality standards.
