1

What are some characteristics of Design-bid-build?

- Traditional approach

- Linear design sequence, producing CDs for contractors to bid on

- Super common

2

What is the design-bid-build "negotiated select team" variation?

- Contractor selected early

- Subcontractors selected after CDs

3

What is the design-bid-build "cost plus fixed fee" variation?

- Contractor selected after CDs, but scope is unpredictable (may be due to unknown existing conditions, etc.)

- C is paid labor/materials/overhead plus a fixed amount fee, so that their fee doesn't go up with project costs (because then they may purposely make it super expensive)

- May have incentives for under budget

4

What is a CM-Adviser project delivery?

CM doesn't build the building but advises the owner on constructability and cost management. (can be used on D-B-B)

5

What is a CM-Agent project delivery?

CM provides early consulting and organizes the construction team through construction.

6

What is a CM-Contractor project delivery?

CM plays advisor role during design, transitions to DBB like contractor for construction.

7

What is a CMc?

Construction Manager as constructor. (Acting as a contractor) AKA CM@Risk

8

What are some Construction Management services?

- Team meeting leadership
- Action log
- Decision-making process
- Code official review
- Owner purchasing
- Cost control
- Department interface (engineering, telecom, security)
- Documents review
- Presentations
- Design process documents
- Conflicts and disputes

9

What are Outline Specifications?

Schematic level definition of building components. Material descriptions and quality, proposed products if possible.

10

What are Performance Specifications?

Actual descriptions of how the selected products need to perform. Very technical.

11

What are Narrative Specifications?

Describe the work in words rather than drawings. Easily revised. Used for early cost estimate.

12

What is a Fast Track Schedule?

Method of delivery that allows AE documents to be issued in multiple stages (bid packages)

13

What is a Contractor-Led Design-Build?

Where a general contracting firm selects an architecture firm to form a design-build team. These make up 56% of D/B projects

14

When would an owner choose Architect-Led Design-Build?

When design is paramount

15

If COST is the primary driving factor for a project and RISK is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

Design-bid-Build (Traditional)

*Construction cost determined after design
*One contract

16

If QUALITY is the primary driving factor for a project and COST is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

Negotiated select team (Traditional)

*Construction cost determined after design
*One contract

17

If SCOPE is the primary driving factor for a project which project delivery method should be chosen?

Cost plus fixed fee (Traditional)

*Construction cost determined at completion
*One contract

18

If RISK is the primary driving factor for a project and QUALITY is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

CM-Adviser

*Many contracts

19

If RISK is the primary driving factor for a project and TIME is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

CM-Agent

*Construction cost determined at completion
*Many contracts

20

If TIME is the primary driving factor for a project and RISK is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

CM-Constructor

*Construction cost determined after design
*One contract

21

If RISK is the primary driving factor for a project and COST is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

Standard Design-Build

*Construction cost determined BEFORE design
*One contract

22

If RISK is the primary driving factor for a project and QUALITY is the secondary driver, which project delivery method should be chosen?

Bridging Design-Build

*Construction cost determined after design
*One contract

23

What is another term for CM-constructor (CMc)?

CM-at-risk

24

What is a primary benefit of a CMc arrangement?

The insights that happen between architect and CM during design phases.

25

When is a budget established for a project?

No later than schematic design

26

What are some cost-analysis benefits of a CMc arrangement?

- Cost estimates are performed at design milestones
- Subcontractor bids
- Constructor can be estimator

27

What are some basic CMc services in the preconstruction phase?

- Evaluate program/schedule/budget
- Consult on construction/constructibility/materials & labor
- Prepare project schedule
- Recommend phasing
- Preliminary cost estimates

28

What is included in the CMc's GMP proposal?

The sum of the CMc's estimate of the cost of work, including contingencies and the CM's fee.

29

What are some basic CMc services in the construction phase?

- Obtain bids from sub's
- Make sure the sub's work matches CDs
- Maintain schedule
- Track cost against GMP

30

In what areas can a CMc's constructibility knowledge be helpful?

- Local building conventions
- Building systems
- Site Selection
- Scope Limitations
