Construction Risk Management

CMCpic5

The CMC construction risk team serves lenders and investors by providing expert analysis and advice to safeguard their interests during the project construction and delivery stage. Our services can be customized to meet our client's needs based upon project size, project type (new construction or renovation), budget, borrower relationship and risk position.

We address key areas such as project plans and contracts, developer and contractor track record, together with a keen focus on budget and schedule. In the pre-construction review phase, CMC will review the construction and project documents and advise on their quality and completeness. During construction, the CMC team will conduct site inspections and monitor construction progress, identifying deficiencies and highlighting other concerns. CMC will review and analyze payment applications, change orders and delivery schedule. CMC’s site inspection and progress report will contain a detailed schedule of values reconciliation and a disbursement recommendation based upon the valuation of completed work in place.

CMC’s project management teams will support our clients’ construction risk and loan administration staff from project start to through project close-out.

Our Construction Oversight services are typically provided in three (3) phases and can be customized to meet our client's needs based upon project size, type (new construction or renovation), risk position, budget, borrower relationship, and other factors.
