Lowering costs and improving quality
With construction management, we put the owner in charge. We anticipate and welcome a high level of collaboration and manage your project from start to finish. That’s because we use the CM Agent delivery method (Construction Management as Agent) and facilitate both design and construction by organizing people, materials and equipment.
From the beginning, the S.B. Ballard team, as the CM at Risk, becomes a collaborative member of your project team, assisting with budgeting, scheduling and advising on alternative design implications. During the design phase, this allows you to fully realize the benefit and value of preconstruction services—before the impact of changes could become costly.
In the construction phase, we serve as the single point of responsibility for the project. It’s a smart approach because it allows the owner to procure and hold the trade contracts while the construction manager coordinates the build.
The CM Agent method lowers cost, improves quality and may minimize construction claims when compared to standard construction practice. Our experience in concrete construction and general contracting, plus our strong business sense, have proven time and again that CM Agent is the preferred strategy.
As construction managers, we are team leaders who excel at planning, straightforward communication, timely decision-making and being accountable for any changes.
We’ve developed the partners and relationships to form an all-star project team, hand-selected specifically for every job. With an expert team working efficiently in partnership with you, we bring innovation to the design and construction process, saving you time and money.
