Providing Forensic, Management, Consulting and Construction Services for Industrial, Commercial, Hospitality and Residential Projects
Helping Owners, Contractors and Manufacturers Complete Projects On-Time and On-Budget
CM&F Inc., has a simple philosophy we apply to all our efforts; timely implementation of proper Project Controls and other related Construction Services helps us start strong and end strong. While this sounds simple, construction claims generally have their root in miss management resulting in improper project startup, lagging submittal processes, task sequencing conflicts and inefficient means and methods of construction. Poor planning up front, results in delayed project closeout which need to normally be unraveled by a construction expert. Our Construction Consulting process can assist in your project control implementation.
The construction and industry in general, has moved away from pre-project planning and implementation of proper management controls. Without pre-project planning it’s simply not possible to develop efficient and reasonable construction means and methods and or to control project timelines. The design, procurement and construction process is dependent on developing and implementing the Owner’s program. Spending time to fully understand the Owner’s program or intended use of their facility, budget and timeline is critical in completing a successful project.
Our Forensic division assists clients, insurance companies and litigators with management and case development. Our construction forensics services include inspection and investigation of building component failures, material defects, and deficiencies in installation practices. We can also assist you with addressing code compliant and building industry standard issues, including reviewing construction documents pertaining to the project.
Owner’s need contractors that will deliver and complete a project that is functional for their intended purpose but is also on time, and within budget. CM&F Inc., has the experience and is a company that will put your project on a correct path from startup to completion.
Quality Control / Clerk of the Works
Do you know if you’re getting what you’re paying for during construction? The most reliable way to assure this is to have a clerk-of-the-works (owners’ field representative) around during all of your construction activities. This can make sure contractors are doing things right and honest, and you are actually getting what you paid for.
If left poorly managed, construction projects can quickly and easily double the initial budget and the schedule. Our Construction Management services will keep your project on time, on budget and will make your role hassle and stress free.
Construction forensics is the study of what happened to create a certain outcome, and the scientific approach to understanding within a legal form of discovery. On a modern construction site there are so many different skills and work to be performed, that in order to comprehend the basis for a certain outcome, all of the components and actions by everyone involved require review by a team of professional that are experienced in this type of real world scenario.
