Working on behalf of Owners we pride ourselves in taking on these types of projects where we become an extension of our clients. We bring together the right design team to achieve the concept goals and manage the construction process to ensure that the design intent originally conceived is achieved.
We provide the following services as owner’s representatives:
- Pre development management
- Negotiations with community and government bodies
- Master planning
- Design and construction budgets
- Design and construction schedules
- Pre construction planning
- Design planning and management
- Tendering and procurement
- Contract administration for design and construction contracts
- Project accounting
- Site safety administration
- Site management and implementation
- Turnover and operational assistance
We work with our clients to ensure that the budget and concept are being achieved by the design team. We visualize the concept and strive to complete the work in an effective and timely manner.
manley is able to provide design management services as we are not associated with any design firm. That being said we have worked with most of the design firms in the lower mainland and can assemble a team of designers for any sized project.
In construction management we set up the general requirement costs in the beginning of the project. Then the projects are tendered to a minimum of 3 subtrades. We review these bids with our clients and determine recommendations for awarding the work. At this point we can work in true construction management, where the client pays the subtrades, or at risk, where we pay the subtrades. The key difference between the two approaches are: with true construction management all the costs are shown through to the client and all the cost savings throughout the work are realized by the client: with at risk construction management the client has passed on the risk associated with budget creep.
It is key that this process starts prior to completion of the design so that the construction manager can make recommendations on the design prior to the tendering period.
manley provides general contracting services in a traditional fixed price bid scenario.
