Under the Construction Management at Risk approach, the Owner enters into an agreement with a Contractor early in the design process which allows the project to be designed and built in partnership with the Design Professional, the Contractor, and the Owner in an environment that fosters creativity, innovation, constructibility, frugality, and quality, for the best price possible in today’s market.
Because of this teamwork and partnering, this method provides many advantages to Owners who deem quality, cost, and schedule of the utmost importance. These advantages include establishing a reliable budget, reducing design errors, and providing transparency with fees and costs. At a 50% to 60% design level is an ideal time to enter into this partnership to optimize the best value for the project. The preconstruction phase allows for the delivery of a quality product that responds to the needs of the Owner.
A large number of YZM's projects are delivered via the Construction Management at Risk approach. Our preconstruction team knows how to effectively work with the design team by providing input and value engineering suggestions.

We can develop realistic 3D renderings and video walk-throughs that bring the project to life, allowing you to visualise the space before it is built. Once the design is complete, we will go over the material specifications in great detail to generate a detailed Scope of Work and Construction Contract that can be carried out in the next stage.
