Construction Management At Risk

Construction Management At-Risk

Definition

The construction manager (CM) acts as consultant to the owner in the development and design phases, but as the equivalent of a general contractor during the construction phase. The CM at-risk is responsible for early coordination during the design phase, value engineering, and constructability reviews as well as the selection, scheduling, and sequencing of trade subcontractors. The term "at-risk" conveys that the CM under this method bears the risks of the general contractor, such as price escalation, delay, etc., that are not present in an agency CM situation.
