When you select WS Construction as your General Contractor, you will have a performance contract with us that states that all risks involved with the means and methods of the construction ranging from a project proposal to preconstruction services to the on site management services are that of WS Construction. Some examples of our services of a building contractor and construction company outlined in the contract are; cost estimating, scheduling, design review, designation of a superintendent and plans for the management of the entire project. We can handle the entire project from start to finish or just certain parts of a project. Other services our construction company offers include in addition to industrial construction, commercial construction and structural construction are:
Construction Loan Monitoring
On-Site Owner Representation
On-Site Construction Management
Construction Manager at Risk
WS Construction has provided Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) services for many projects. With CMR services, the Construction Manager (CM) provides professional management assistance to the Owner of the project prior to construction and advice on constructability, budget and schedule considerations. The CM later converts to the equivalent of a General Contractor during construction. These services has been proven very sucessful with Owners who do not continuously maintain the staff expertise or numbers necessary to deal with the complex responsibilities involved in the delivery of major capital projects. CMR services often can occur under a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) contract format. The CM will assume additional obligations and will undertake construction responsibilities during the construction phase. There would be a contract agreement in place for the completion of the construction work for an established price.
Agency Construction Management
With Agency Construction Management, the Construction Manager (CM), assumes the position of professional advisor or extension of staff to the Owner. It is a fee based service in which a CM acts in the owners best interest throughout each stage of the project. The Owner handles the contracts, while certain cost and performance risk is placed on the contractors. An agency CM does not contract with subcontractors. In these cases, the CM is in a position to offer advice unencumbered by any interests other than those of the Owner and the project. The term agency infers, as is intended, a delegation of function to the CM by the Owner. As a consequence, it is possible that certain tasks and responsibilities place the CM in a legal agent relationship with the Owner. This makes it necessary for openness and trust between the CM and the project Owner.
