Construction management service offers a single-source responsibility for the design and construction of a building. Typically, a client hires an architect to design the home and a general contractor to oversee the subcontractors that will build the home. The problem with this approach is that stakeholder’s incentives and motivations are at odds with each other. The client wants to lower the cost while getting the best build quality, the general contractor wants to maximize his profit margins and architect wants to ensure superior build quality. This friction among stakeholders leads to delays in schedules, poor build quality and higher costs for the client.
Construction management, on the other hand, is an agile design and build process in which architects take both roles as a lead designer and the construction manager. The priorities between design, cost, and quality are managed by the same people throughout the design and construction of your home. The benefit of architect-led construction management is fewer delays, superior design quality and lower costs for the client.
