Construction Manager at Risk Fundamentals October 2016

Hear from Industry Experts and Owners on their success with projects using Construction Manager at Risk. A Win-Win for all !

“Great news, our team was just successful on our first CMAR selection, a +/- 30 million dollar reconstruction in the Reno Area.  Thank you again for your CMAR Fundamentals class this past spring, and your help, it was very appreciated.”

Dan LeBlanc, Vice President, Sierra Nevada Construction

Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) is a form of Project Delivery that can minimize risk for all parties involved in a project.  From the beginning, the experience, wisdom, creativity and skill of the AE and CMAR firms are combined at the table with the client’s understanding of the project requirements.  Together they command the classic tripod of functional requirements, design and construction to achieve the highest quality project possible.  The procedure is more methodical, manageable, predictable and less risky for all involved. 

CMAR is attractive to clients, AEs and CMARs because the client makes the selection based on qualifications.  When the client is able to hire better CMARs who are inclined to maximize their service and their allegiance to the client in order to obtain repeat work and a good reference, everyone wins.  Collaboration is a vital element - CMARs provide advice on methods and materials, technology and construction cost during design to keep projects within budget and reduce construction problems related to design; while AEs are more involved in the construction process and make recommendations that are helpful to the project’s success.

Design Build Fundamentals November 2016

Attend this training and hear from Industry Experts about their 'hands-on' experiences and 'how to do' Design Build successfully.  Learn the integrated team approach whcih makes this project delivery method a perferred choice for many projects.

Design-Build (DB) is a form of Project Delivery where one team is responsible for both the design and construction of a project.  This approach eliminates many of the issues associated with the traditional Design-Bid-Build method, where the owner, designer, and contractor often experience adversarial relationships based on shifting risk and assessing blame.
