What is GC/CM?
For larger projects over $10 million, the General Construction/Construction Manager (GC/CM) process may be utilized. This process secures the general contractor earlier in the process and enables them to be more involved with the design phase of the project. Using information from the GC/CM early in the design phase can reduce costs, save time later in construction and reduce the potential for change orders.
