CMAR Projects

West Coast Contractors of Nevada, Inc. strongly believes in the value of the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method and has proven its successful process in numerous occasions over the last few years. We believe the CMAR method ensures a strong relationship between the Owner and the General Contractor from inception, which assists in making the entire process seamless. This alone helps to produce a successful finished product that all parties can be proud of.

The construction manager at risk method allows the owner to interview and select a fee-based firm based upon qualifications and experience, before the design and bid documents are fully complete. The construction manager and design team work together to develop and estimate the design. A guaranteed maximum price (GMP) is provided by the construction manager and then receives proposals from subcontractors and awards subcontracts. The final construction price is considered to be the sum of the construction manager’s fee, overhead, subcontractor’s and supplier’s fees, and contingency. It must be noted that any unused contingency at the end of the project is returned to the owner. The design team is contracted directly with the owner.
