Construction

  • A project-specific delivery method that is suited for medium to large capital or renovation projects. CMAR provides technical assistance to the designer during the design phase, has a cost-capping feature, and allows construction to start before design documents are 100% complete. The CMAR contracts directly with subcontractors, fabricators, and material suppliers.
