As your Owner’s Project Manager (OPM), we provide comprehensive management and coordination of all project activities. KCM Group manages the architect, consultant, contractor and vendors, and keeps everyone aligned with the comprehensive scope of the project, the cost certainty of the budget and rapid and accessible accounting of information.
As an extension of Ownership, KCM Group directs and coordinates all activities associated with an OPM assignment. As your independent manager, we align the team and goals of a project, manage the design and construction phase overview and report for the benefit and interest of ownership.
Our core focus is the financial management of your design and construction project. We assist our clients in establishing a comprehensive project budget, and then track expended and anticipated project costs against the budget on an ongoing basis. The budget reflects the iterative design process, and we work with the designer to stay on course, and to also work with the team to perform early value engineering to keep the project cost-centric without sacrificing design intent. Because of our experience we are adept at minimizing our clients’ risk. Design and construction projects entail lengthy, complex transactions in which disputes often arise. We deal with such issues every day, and we use this experience to keep design and construction on track.
