Design and Build Forum of the University of Reading categorized design and build in UK practice as traditional design-build, consultant innovation and develop and construct. Haltenhoff defines agency CM as a contracting structure that consists of several prime contracts: The owner contracts with a design company to provide a facility design and selects a contractor to perform construction management services and construction work, in accordance with the plans and specifications for a fee.
Ashworth referred to management contract as a situation where the main contractor provides the management expertise required on a construction project in return for a fee to cover the overheads and profit. The contractor does not participate in the profitability of the construction work, i. Except with the possibility of setting up the site and those items normally associated with the preliminary work.
The appointment of management contractor can be made early on in the design process. Therefore he will be able to provide a substantial input into the design. Each trade section required for the project is normally tendered for separately by sub-contractors, either on the basis of measurement or a lump sum. The responsibility allocation in the four contracting systems show that project essential elements, e.
The performance of project responsibilities are assigned to one of the stakeholder or shared by the two stakeholders or jointly managed by project team. Risks and responsibilities are assigned and managed by the principal participant that has larger contribution in a task.
In terms of comparative definitions of the four systems the GC and D-B contracting make use of a single prime contractor that is hired as an independent contractor. Construction management and MC contracting uses multiple prime contractors, hired as an independent contractor, who has a financial stake in the construction phase of a design-bid-build project sequence. General contracting contractor has a financial stake in the construction phase of a design-bid-build project sequence while D-B contractor has financial stake in both the design and construction phases of the bid-design-build project sequence.
In essence, variation and hybrids of all the four contracting systems will depend on compensation structure, assignment of responsibilities, allocation and distribution of risks between the stakeholders combined with particular project characteristics. Comparison based on price competition and contractual co-operation for the four contracting systems made by Oyegoke b shows that contractual co-operation is a major determinant factor in selecting project consultants, while price competition serves as a minor determinant in all contracting systems.
The contractual relationship between the consultant on behalf of the owner with the contractors, and the contractors with the sub-contractors, and sub-contractors with sub-sub-contractor are based on price competition while contractual co-operation serves as a minor determinant in all contracting systems.
Construction management's contractual process will be determined by the CM form and variation selected by the owner. Primarily, both types are based on the philosophy of applying management skills to co-ordinate the design and construction process. A model was developed for the comparison and the results show the differences and similarities in the context of contractual links, contractual arrangements, information links, contractual responsibilities in pre-construction and construction phases, construction manager's involvement in construction activities, provision of special facilities, and contractual co-operation between the stakeholders. Specifically, the management contractor will provide special facilities that are not common to any sub-trade and also bears the risk on the time and cost but not on workmanship. The differences between the contracting systems are the contractual ties and assignment of responsibilities of the parties, the contracts within the system, and their legal performance requirements.

In general contracting, price competition and contractual co-operation as a determinant are equally important between the main contractor and nominated sub-contractors Fig. Construction Management Association of America CMAA defines CM as a discipline and management system specifically created to promote the successful execution of capital projects for owners. The firm represents the owner in all CM activities. Construction management is a variation to the cost plus contract, involving consulting in development stage and management during the construction stage.
The overwhelming advantage is that the owner's interest is the manager's interest and the work can be sub-contracted piecemeal with the owner participating in the buying.
Also the probable cost of the work is budgeted and monitored by experienced people, alternatives can also be selected to effect economy, and long lead time items can be designed and purchased early Bush, Construction management is also useful in a contract situation in which multiple or general contractors are involved Mulvey, Dorsey emphasizes that the construction manager's works span through various phases of a project planning, design, construction and post-construction and co-operates with the owner and the designer in achieving the owners' project objectives.
Because most clients do not have sufficient expertise to manage the works contractors, the services of a CM firm are employed, on a fee basis.

This firm may be a contracting firm or a professional consultant. Seeley defines management contracting as a system whereby a main contractor is appointed, either by negotiation or in competition, and works closely with the team of professionals. All physical construction is undertaken by sub-contractors work contractors selected in competition.
He furthers postulates that the management contractor provides common services to the sub-contractor such as welfare facilities, or any plant or equipment not confined to one sub-trade.
The management contractor is remunerated based on a fee for his services and, in addition, the cost of his on-site management, common services and the cost of all the work undertaken by the sub-contractor. In the practice note Joint contracts tribunal, , suitable conditions have been outlined for the use of a management contract. In a construction management contract in the UK, the construction contracts are made directly between the client and construction contractor works contractor , with a construction manager acting as the client's agent.
As the contracts are made between the client and the construction contractor works contractor the conventional allocation of risks remains unchanged. The extent of risk and liability carried by a construction manager can vary considerably and their definition has, so far, been a matter of negotiation at the time of the construction manager's appointment CIRIA, In the US, CM as a delivery process is practised in two general forms: Agency CM ACM is a fee-based arrangement in which the construction manager is responsible exclusively to the owner and acts in the owner's interests at every stage of the project.
In this approach, the construction firm assumes the role of agent to the owner in a relationship parallel to that of an architect or engineer, and primarily administers the work of other construction entities. The principal construction and design entities are agent to the owner and function at equal levels in providing services. When it involves pure administrative role it is referred to as 'pure' agency Dorsey, Fig. The main role of agency construction manager is to provide leadership and administration for the project, from planning and design in co-operation with the designers to construction completion and building start-up.
As agent, construction manager render services to expedite the project, including fast tracking, i. The construction manager also monitors costs, time, quality and safety, but does not take responsibility for them. Therefore the risk lies with the owner and the owner holds the contract Dorsey, It is worth to note that the sub-contractor in general contracting practice will be a main contractor in ACM contracting system thereby eliminating one complete contracting tier Haltenhoff, While in at-risk CM, the construction firm is also the contractor of the project, acting much like a general contractor during the construction phase.
At-risk construction management begins with the construction firm in an agency role for pre-construction services. Prior to construction the firm assumes the risk of delivering the project, with a set price as an option for guarantee maximum price GMP. When a construction manager is bound to a guaranteed maximum price, the most fundamental character of the relationship is changed. At some juncture in the development of contract documents, construction manager and owner usually agree on a guaranteed maximum price with all the traditional provisions regarding: Construction Management Association of America document No.
GMP-3 article 6. This indicates that in addition to construction manager's consultant role in development and design phases, the construction manager engages in actual construction work at construction phase. Haltenhoff refers to ACM as the root form where three sub-forms evolve by changing the vested responsibilities of the ACM team members.
Merging sub-forms and further combining services responsibilities can create additional variations in the three sub-forms. Dorsey has highlighted two main types of CM contracts: Although agency and at-risk CM are two basic forms but CM agreements can include special clauses, which define in detail, how both the design team and construction team will serve each other. Basically, there are two types of CM contracting systems in UK: In a management contract the permanent works are constructed under a series of construction contracts placed by the management contractor after approval by the client.
