General contracting services are traditionally provided under a design-bid-build model. The owner has engaged a consulting team to design their project and through a negotiation or tendering process has selected a general contractor to perform the work utilizing a lump sum contract.
When an owner engages a construction manager, there is an expectation of expertise and collaboration. The construction manager works alongside the owner and consultant team with input from major subcontractors and suppliers to develop, plan and execute the project from concept to completion.
The design-build method of construction creates an overlap between the design of the project and construction. This allows the overall project timeline to be compressed compared to the traditional design-bid-build method. It is intended to improve communication between the client and the builder and to facilitate additional synergies.
