Bringing in a construction manager early has a wide range of benefits. A majority of Wisconsin’s School Districts — and a vast majority of JP Cullen’s K-12 and Technical College Clients — use the construction management approach for referenda.
Typically a district will bring aboard the construction manager and the architect to provide a system of checks and balances. Some bring the construction manager aboard even before the design discussion takes place. Typical savings from this approach — versus an outside consultant — range from $20,000 – $30,000.
