Construction management – overseeing your commercial building project

While Bobbitt has its roots in design-build, we are also offer popular construction management delivery methods for the development of your commercial, educational, religious or industrial facility. We have the technical capability and financial stability to act as your advocate and join with your design team to manage your project for timely, on-budget completion. With Bobbitt as your construction management company, partnering with your talented designers, you will achieve the results you desire.

Construction management delivery methods

Construction management is a project delivery method that delivers higher project value than the traditional general contracting or design-bid-build approach. The CM process flows from the design of the site and building, to the bidding of materials and trades, all the way through construction to the dedication or commissioning of your facility. With Bobbitt as your construction manager, we are brought into this process early – as a partner in the project. As the process moves along, relationships and trust are built between all members of the team.

Why would a client need or hire a construction manager at risk?

Most clients do not have the resources, personnel or time to look after and coordinate the many facets of a building project from pre-construction through construction. This work requires a dedicated CM@R construction partner for the specific and focused attention that the project needs.

A qualified construction manager lifts this burden from the client and works side by side with the architect and design team. The “At Risk” places the burden on the construction manager to manage the project within the client’s budget. The partnering of good designers and good construction managers can produce the desired result for any client – a completed quality project on budget and on time.

What is construction management as owner's agent

A building owner may choose to engage Bobbitt as the construction manager as owner’s agent (CMa) – a fee-based service – during the design phase of a project. In this scenario, we lend our expertise in estimating, constructability review and other pre-bid services. However, as CMa, we do not perform any of the actual construction and don’t directly enforce the contracts of those performing the work.

As a CMa, Bobbitt’s role is to assist with scheduling and coordination, constructability review of the design, non-binding estimating, value engineering recommendations, observation of the work for conformance with the contract, project documentation and other similar activities.
