Construction Manager–General Contractor Project Delivery: A Better, Faster, Smarter Way of Building Transportation Infrastructure

Construction manager-general contractor (CMGC) is an alternative method for delivering highway projects that can reduce the growth of cost and of time during construction. Under this arrangement, the construction manager provides input during project design and is at risk for meeting the project’s budget and deadline. This article describes the CMGC project delivery method and provides brief case studies to illustrate how the arrangement works and the best contexts to gain its advantages.
