Construction Management Guidelines for Capital Outlay Program Projects.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Facilities Services Unit.
The Georgia State Department of Education recognizes two separate methods for utilizing construction management services by local school systems when state capital outlay funds are involved. This report details those two methods. The report first describes the Construction Management (CM)-Agency approach, which allows a CM-Agency manager to enter into a professional services contract similar to an architectural or engineering contract with the local board of education (LBOE). The CM-Agency performs no work with its own employees, receives no additional fees or profit margins from the project other than the fees or expenses provided for in the contract, and maintains a position in the project independent from the designer and the contractors. The report then explains the Construction Management-At Risk approach, which involves a construction services contract with the LBOE in which the CM-At Risk manager contracts the various components of the project the way in which a general contractor would. The CM-At Risk manager does not usually perform any portion of the work except for those items specified under the general conditions of the contract such as cleanup, layout, and security. (RJM)
