MARANT takes a collaborative approach to the construction management process by integrating the design development phase with a pre-construction process. We become a key member of the project team from the early stages, acting as the client's construction consultant. The value to the client and the team is a controlled pre-construction process, where we work in a strategic capacity alongside the design team to anticipate and resolve problems. We provide preliminary budget estimates, value engineering as required, provide sub-trade planning approaches, pre-order long-lead items and warehouse, attend pre-tender drawing reviews, and produce, monitor and implement schedules. By managing the risks inherent in any project, the client is assured that by the time the drawings are issued for tender, the budget estimates have been qualified, thereby eliminating post-tender cost surprises. As well, by entering the tendering process with a pre-selected, highly qualified list of sub-trades, clients are also assured that their leaseholds/renovations will meet their quality expectations and be completed on schedule.
The Construction Management approach, similar to an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, is a highly collaborative, value based, pre-construction process. Construction management has become a preferred delivery method because of its ability to mitigate the client's project risks related to quality, budget and schedule.
