Construction Management Services
For K-12 School Districts And Educational Facilities In California
Cal K-12, Inc. Provides Construction Management Services To K-12 School Districts And Educational Facilities In California.
The professional construction manager is the individual or firm who binds himself to a District in a professional arrangement and applies the proper combination of management tools to a construction project necessary to achieve time and cost control.
When construction management is utilized to the fullest, one construction management firm is retained to coordinate all activities from concept design through acceptance of the facility. This one firm represents the District in all construction management activities
The construction manager (CM) in effect becomes the Director, controlling the flows of information among all parties active on the project. The CM ensures that the procedures for District award of all contracts associated with construction comply with the California Public Contract Code, Education Code, Government Code and any and all other government codes and/or ordinances.
Once contractual relationships are established, the CM controls the prime contractors (contractors who have a direct contractual relationship with the District) and in a de facto sense the major subcontractors (contractors who have a direct contractual relationship with the prime contractors) as well as major vendors and off-site fabricators. In this control or management function, the CM firm utilizes the project schedule as a road map or flight plan to keep things moving forward in a timely and cost effective manner. The major functions carried out by the CM firm vary depending on whether the project is in the (1) pre design, (2) design, or (3) construction phase.
