We are committed to your project – and your best interests.
At its heart, construction management is a professional service that gives a project owner the benefit of effective management and oversight of their capital project, so that they do not have to assign the task to a less experienced in-house team. The construction management represents the owner’s interests and coordinates the activities of all parties involved, including the architect/engineer, and the general contractor.
What makes MHCM the right choice to be your construction manager?
The team at Mid Hudson Construction Management is uniquely qualified through years of experience and expertise in problem-solving, problem-prevention and complex planning, along with on-the job knowledge of construction methods. Our adherence to budget and timing lines has evolved from shepherding the most complicated projects through rigorous owner and regulatory requirements and emerging at the other end with a project that meets the owners expectations regarding quality, scope and function.
Why CM contracts will be more effective at meeting an owner’s goals
In a construction management (CM) contract, the fee is established as a fixed amount or as a fixed percentage for the budget. The owner and the construction manger share an objective to get the best price, from the right architect, contractor or supplier, for the cost of the work. All parties work together to ensure the project’s success. This is why involvement of the construction manager at the pre-construction or design face is not only smart, it’s essential.
Compare this to the lump sum general contractor (GC) bid system
Using this system, a set of completed drawings is used to establish a set price for the construction of the project. The general contractor is rewarded for being in project costs that are lower than the bid price. As a result, the GC’s goal becomes to construct the owner’s facility for the least cost possible, with no added benefit to the owner. In fact, it puts the owner and the GC on opposite sides and the general contractor spends as little upfront pre-construction time as possible, hoping to patch up problems at the end of the project through change-orders.
