Our project management methodology is a well-documented system of processes, tools, attitudes, training, and communications. We divide the process of project management into five major components: team management, outreach, design, budgets, and schedules.
From the feasibility study, program, design, preconstruction to construction completion, and building commissioning, we provide a smooth development process with tools and analyses that give you cost and schedule certainty every step of the way. With an early, ongoing and comprehensive view of your project, you can be confident in your decisions at each stage.
As the design solidifies and the project transitions to construction, the investment of planning time during design pays off in reduced cost, increased quality and delivering the project on time.
Under a Construction Management-Agency service agreement, Manhattan International acts as the agent for our client’s interests while overseeing the construction and design of a project. As your agent, we assume the day to day responsibilities as the owner’s representative. This can include hiring the design and construction teams, evaluating the contracts, and managing the teams throughout each stage of the project.
Even the smallest design change can impact cost and schedule. We understand that you need to know the value of your design options to make the best choices. With our unique brand of Builder-Driven Preconstruction® services, we help you maximize value and find a balance between project features, cost, and schedule to help you meet your goals. We help to eliminate cost surprises, accelerate facility turnover and maximize the building program for your budget.
