Cost-Effective Church Construction with Dependable Management Services
What Is Church Construction Management?
When a church building committee (owner) chooses an architect to design their project, rather than asking an architect to bid the design, the church fills the role of the general contractor. They negotiate with a construction manager to oversee the day-to-day operations of the project to get the most cost-effective results. At Churches By Daniels, we recommend the construction manager first establish a fixed fee for his services. This construction delivery method is accepted industry-wide as the least expensive method of construction.
The church construction management process looks like this:
Choosing the Right Construction Management Company
A thorough evaluation of the church construction design manager before you hire is absolutely essential to get the most positive results from the construction delivery method. Since there is no set price for the cost of construction using this method, there is potential for a contractor to escalate the cost of construction, ensuring them a greater profit. However, if a contractor works solely for the interest of the church building committee (owner), both parties will have considerably greater advantages throughout the construction process.
These advantages include:
An experienced church construction design manager knows how to make a church construction project successful.
- Gives advice on what will work best
- Knows building requirements that help a project proceed smoothly
- Understands the community and provides localized knowledge
Church construction management helps keep costs down in a number of ways.
- Knows current industry prices and materials
- Vets contractors to ensure affordable, quality performance
- Resolves issues to prevent costly project delays
The church construction design manager serves as a single point of contact.
- Ensures information moves smoothly between contractors, designers, and church management
- Provides timely input, avoids communication delays
- Maintains all contracts, permits, and other documents
With a design manager onsite, your church construction project is more likely to stay on schedule.
- Handles contract negotiations
- Breaks up project into streamlined phases that produce swift results
- Catches issues early so they don’t create problems later on
