CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AT RISK

As a Construction Manager at Risk, Midwest Construction Professionals provides similar services as an Agency CM during the pre-design and design phase; however, we act similar to that of a general contractor during the construction phase due to our contractual agreement with the owner.

MCP holds the risk of construction performance and guarantees completion of the project for a negotiated Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). The GMP is usually established at a point during the design when the construction documents are between 60 and 90 percent complete.

In addition to MCP providing the owner with the benefit of pre-construction services, the CM at Risk delivery method offers the opportunity to begin construction prior to the completion of the design. With our experience working on design and construction projects totaling over $600 million as an Agency CM, we are extremely experienced with bidding projects out in phases in an effort to expedite the schedule. The ability that we offer to “fast track” early components of construction prior to the completion of the design can be a major advantage on many projects.

Although many in the construction industry note the CM at Risk delivery method can become an adversarial relationship similar to that of a design-bid-build (DBB) system, we offer an approach that may mitigate this problem.

In an effort to maintain a trusting relationship with our client, MCP offers the CM at Risk process to be “open book”, and we share all of the sub-contractor bids with our client.  We do this in an effort to ensure transparency in the process of establishing a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) that is fair to both Midwest and our client.

With our experience and the resources we have at MCP, we look forward to an opportunity to work with you on your next project.
