Construction Management
The Construction Management (CM) method of project delivery is a concept that began to be 'officially' recognized in the 60’s. This method replaces the adversarial relationships between the owner and contractor in the traditional method with one of cooperation and teamwork. The contractor is selected early in the process on the basis of trust, confidence, and relationship, with criteria such as experience, performance and past success being evaluated. Construction Management promotes a team approach with the Owner, Architect, and contractor to facilitate efficient design, good communication, quality construction, and lasting value in a project. The owner receives the experienced services of a pre-construction manager combined with the advantage and protection of a general contractor.

The Design/Build approach of construction allows the owners to contract with a firm to provide both design and construction services. This approach replaces the traditional method of awarding separate contracts for design and construction. With Design/Build, the contractor and architect/engineer work together as a team in serving the owner’s needs during design, construction, and completion.

Build to lease, sometimes known as lease/buyback, is an approach to meeting your building needs in which you work with a builder or developer to build a new facility to your specifications and then is leased back to you for an agreed upon period of time. You may jointly select a suitable piece of property with the developer, or he may have land he already owns. In return for constructing the building, you will typically enter into a long term lease that allows the developer to recapture some or all his of his costs. You will probably be required to pledge tangible assets as collateral to guarantee the lease, a means of mitigating the risk undertaken by the developer not unlike borrowing money from a bank. If your desire is to ultimately own the building, a buyout option is included in the lease.
