Construction Management as Agent
Construction management as agent, or third party construction management, entails the construction manager acting as an agent of the owner, neither designing nor constructing the project. As your CM Agent, we administers the construction contract throughout the planning, design and construction phases and are empowered to act on behalf of the owner regarding contract matters, overseeing design and construction; and transact specified business on behalf of the owner. Under this model of construction management, the owner contracts separately with the construction manager, design professional and either a general contractor or various prime contractors. D.F. Chase has administrative relationships with the architect/engineer and general contractor or prime contractors, but a contractual relationship only with the owner.
