In the role of Construction Manager at-Risk (CMaR), Carl A. Nelson & Company (CANCO) is able to combine its extensive Design-Build, design-assist and General Contracting experience to help guide the project through design and budgeting, and then take a lead role in the construction phase. This delivery method is sometimes known as Construction Manager as Constructor.
Working with the designer contracted by the Owner, CANCO performs a pre-construction review of the drawings to identify unnecessary costs, find value engineering opportunities and conduct code review, and also will establish a construction budget and schedule. At the conclusion of design and pre-construction, we will negotiate a contract for construction and begin building the project.
Carl A. Nelson & Company has more than a century of general contracting experience, while our design-build experience goes back to the early 1970s. Our superintendents average more than 30 years in the construction industry, and our project managers — all of them with degrees in civil or construction engineering, construction management or industrial technology — average more than 25 years of industry experience.
