For those clients seeking construction management (CM), South Coast’s skilled team can apply effective management techniques to the planning, design, and construction of a project from inception to completion to control time, cost and quality. We will perform preconstruction services, construction management, and management of owner move-in activities. Similar to the traditional general contractor’s fee, a construction manager’s fee is simply a percentage of the total construction cost.
The CM - At Risk method of project delivery is increasingly being utilized by private and public sector clients, since it limits the owner’s risk while managing pricing, scheduling and qualifications. This delivery method ensures South Coast delivers the project within a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Our construction manager will act as a consultant to the owner in the development and design phases, but as the equivalent of a general contractor during the construction phase. When a construction manager is bound to a GMP, the construction manager not only acts in the owner’s interest, but also protects him/herself.
