CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AT RISK

ICON combines the sophisticated management expertise of the Scaparotti Construction Group with the outstanding craftsmanship and general contracting skills of the C.T. Taylor Company. Drawing from the resources of these firms allows ICON to ensure that every Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) client receives the highest level of performance available on their project. 

  • CMAR combines our expertise in virtually every building type and construction material system with our unique, time-tested approach to managing project planning, construction, and occupancy.
  • ICON plans, coordinates, and documents contracts, costs, schedules and all the communications and information required to construct a building exceptionally well.
  • ICON guides the project planning team towards timely success using the same management skills we apply to construction activities.
  • Detailed conceptual estimates combined with meaningful constructability analysis and schedule projections means that decisions can be made based upon reliable information without the risk that late surprises can cause major delays and cost overruns.
  • We focus on managing effective relationships between all project stakeholders to meet project goals.
  • In this project delivery format ICON takes full responsibility for all cost overruns providing the owner with peace of mind regarding the project budget.
