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.
