This project was a Design/Build (DB) project with a very tight schedule. CPMI was the Owners Representative. We provided initial budget development and design and cost services. We assisted in development of the RFP for Design Builder and the interview process. CPMI prepared the PM Plan, reviewed multiple bid packages for conformance with Design Guidelines, prepared RFPs for testing consultants, commissioning agent and other consultants.
We prepared financial reports and reconciled with State account on a regular basis. We helped maintain communication between the State and Design-Build Contractor by being on site full-time and attending all meetings. We helped to coordinate owner provided services such as material testing, special inspections, and commissioning.
