The CMAR/Design Build Process

Construction Management at-Risk (CMAR) project delivery system is simply one of partnership, trust and competency. With CMAR, the owner chooses the Construction Manager (CM) before the design stage is complete.

The CM works in conjunction with the design firm and oversees project management and preconstruction (time, cost, materials, etc.)

The CMAR takes on the financial obligation for construction under a specified cost agreement. The CMAR is the contractor taking on the performance risk for construction and provides a cost guarantee or Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP).
