CM AS AN AGENT

As an Agent Project Management Associates retains the authority to act as the owner, allowing the owner to step back from the project.

In this role Project Management Associates' services are contracted prior to the completion of design and acts as the project coordinator and general contractor. As CM-constructor Project Management Associates assumes all the liability and responsibility of the general contractor and most commonly is described as CM-at-risk. This is an excellent solution proposition for projects that need to be fast tracked, or to owner's for whom cost, schedule, or construction implementation would be difficult to manage.
