Construction Management services can be provided in a variety of ways. The two most common are CM at Risk and CM as an Advisor. The main difference between each service type is a CM at Risk takes the overall financial responsibility (risk) for a project and a CM as an Advisor does not. A CM as an Advisor is for the most part is purely a consultant on the construction process for your specific project. Bayland is primarily a Design/Build General contractor and we take overall financial responsibility for the majority of our projects and therefore we (in most cases) will operate under a CM at Risk approach to projects. This approach will protect our clients for the multitude of unforeseen issues that arise on construction projects. The following are services that are commonly provided as part of each construction project.
