Construction Management (CM) form of project delivery promotes a team approach to the construction delivery process. The concept joins the Owner, Consultants and Construction Manager on a team, whose objective is to deliver the project with emphasis on time, budget and constructability.
The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) has developed three CM contract forms:
- CCDC 5A Construction Management Contract – For Services
- CCDC 5B Construction Management Contract – For Services and Construction
- CCDC 17 Stipulated Price Contract Between Owner and Trade Contractor for CM Projects
There are fundamental differences between CCDC 5A and CCDC 5B.
Under CCDC 5A, the owner retains the Construction Manager to provide the construction management services detailed in the agreement. The Construction Manager is the agent for the Owner to the extent of the services described in the agreement. The Owner contracts with the trade contractors using CCDC 17.
CCDC 5B and has been referred to as the Construction Manager “at risk” model. In this case, the Owner retains the Construction Manager to provide the construction management services detailed in the agreement. The Construction Manager contracts with the trade contractors directly using CCA-1. The CM is contractually bound to the trade contractor in the same way as a general contractor.
Attendees will learn the key provisions and philosophy behind these 2 different CM contract forms from a panel of key stakeholders – the Owner/Developer; the Construction Manager and the Design Consultant.
