Description

Regardless of the delivery method utilized, the Agency Construction Manager (Agency CM) can play a pivotal role throughout all phases, serving as the owner’s principal agent to advise on or manage the process over the life of the project or specific phases of the project. When utilizing an Agency CM in design-build, successful projects rely on owners that create an organization that supports and educates key personnel, including Agency CMs, on the importance of setting expectations and fostering a collaborative relationship among all members of the project team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how the role of an Agency CM on a design-build project is different than an Agency CM on other types of projects.
  • Assess how the DB team structure impacts the role of the Agency CM.
  • Understand why engaging the Agency CM as early as possible is always important, but even more important in design-build.
  • Discuss how the level of experience of the owner drives the most appropriate role of an Agency CM.

not convincing re: CMAA and DBIA owner reps discussion; Key slide take away was one showing that trust is important -- pretty basic but totally fudling re" difference between CMAR and PDB - wow. SFO was solid - but redundant with SFO session;
