Construction Management (CM) is a contract between the Owner and the Construction Manager. This can include advisory services during the pre-construction phase and performing the required work during the construction phase. At the outset of the project, CM services are performed on an actual-cost basis, plus a percentage mark-up or fixed fee applied to actual costs. CM is an open-book form of contract where AEC Developments works on behalf of the owner to bid the project to Trade Contractors. We act in a Consultant and Constructor role on the project, assisting in working collaboratively with all stakeholders from the start of design to the completion of construction. Our role is to influence the bid documents to allow for current market conditions and/or material choices to suit availability, ultimately leading to better budget and schedule control.
GENERAL CONTRACTING - STIPULATED SUM
General Contracting (GC) is a contract between the Owner and Prime Contractor to perform the required work for a single, predetermined fixed or lump sum price, regardless of the Contractor’s actual costs. This form of contract is the typical Design-Bid-Build format. The construction documents are completed and issued for a formal bid by the Designer or Owner. We act as the Constructor on the project but can only review the documents after they are completed and bid for constructability, value engineering, and trade scope.
One contract. One team. In this model there is a single contract to provide design and construction services. The designers and builders work collaboratively to deliver a project that fulfills the client's vision.
Before construction even begins, there are a number of services to help you manage and execute your project:
- Budget & Cost Development
- Project Planning and Phasing
- Project Scheduling
- Construction Risk Management
- Value Engineering
Our team has a proven track record of delivering projects on tight schedules. More importantly, we can execute on these tight timelines while staying on budget. The following are just a few of our areas of expertise:
