Owner’s Representative

As Construction projects become more and more complex, few owners have the resources internally to manage all aspects of design, engineering and construction. Operating as a representative of the owner, DSC’s construction management service has proven effective in both the public and private sectors.

Dean Snyder Construction offers construction management services in two forms:

Agency Construction Management (CMa)

Agency construction management is a delivery system based on the Owner’s agreement with a firm to provide coordination, administration, and management within a defined scope of services. CMa is frequently used on large, complex public projects where the owner desires to supplement in-house staff and expertise. A key element of agency construction management is the owner holds all trade contracts.

Construction Management at Risk (CMc)

Most often used in the private sector, construction management at risk provides many of the same services as agency construction management. In addition, CMc’s typically holds the trade contracts, takes responsibility for the performance for the work, and guarantees the construction costs and schedule.
