Data Center Construction Management

Construction management is a professional service that provides a project’s owner(s) with effective management of the project’s schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope, and function. Construction management is compatible with all project delivery methods. No matter the setting, a Construction Manager’s (CMs) responsibility is to the owner and to a successful project.

At its core, a capital project is made up of three parties (excluding the CM):-

  • The owner, who commissions the project and either funds the project directly or finances it through a variety of methods.
  • The architect/engineer, who designs the project.
  • The general contractor, who oversees day-to-day operations and manages subcontractors.

The CM represents the owner’s interest and provides oversight over the entire project directly for the owner. His/her mandate is to work with all parties to deliver the project on time, at or under budget, and to the owner’s expected standard of quality, scope, and function.

Avoiding Potential Issues

Every project has a variety of challenges that present themselves throughout the process. The key to avoiding and minimizing the impact of unexpected challenges is communication. One of our strengths as managers is our ability to effectively facilitate communication between different levels of the business and project. We work hard to make sure each question that arises has a proper answer, and that no one is making assumptions about the project that could result in an issue.

Reliable Reporting

One of the main roles of your construction manager is to monitor and report on projects schedules and costs. Continuous review of the project’s performance allows you to know exactly where the project is financially and can help to identify and resolve equipment or personnel complications before they occur. We thoroughly prepare and document project activities in our status reports for your peace of mind and foresight.

Permit and Clearances

As your project managers we will make sure the proper building permits and bylaw clearances are acquired and in place before your project is held up. Proper organization and planning are key to obtaining the required documentation when building electrical construction projects.
