Sample text

CM at risk rarely allows for firm costs to be combined with a concept design in a proposal to the owner. Final project cost may not be known until the project is completed under many CM contractual arrangements. CM-at-risk project delivery is slower than design-build. With the owner issuing separate contracts for the designer and constructor, the process retains some of the linearity of the traditional process. University studies (University of Colorado; Penn State) have shown that CM at risk, while swifter than traditional, is not as time-efficient as a combined designconstruction contract.

This format represents less change for an owner, instead of going directly to a single contract for both design and construction as would be done under an integrated services contract. CM at risk is faster than traditional design-bid-build. The CM-at-risk delivery process produces projects more quickly than the traditional method, according to university studies. By engaging the constructor during the design process, the work can begin on sequential packages of work, thereby compressing the overall delivery schedule.

Market surveys often examine both public and private markets. Some observers contend that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s extensive use of designbuild-operate for infrastructure projects in the United Kingdom during the 1980s spurred the Reagan Administration’s experimental use with designbuild for federal projects in the United States. As training of government contracting and procurement personnel is expanded to include best value and integrated services, cultural barriers to design-build will begin to disappear.
