We understand that the business relationship between the owner, designer, and construction manager is vital. Typically, the construction manager is hired before the designer. The construction manager functions to help the designer with construction documents throughout the pre-construction phase of the project.
Construction management allows us to advocate for you through every stage of your construction project. This delivery system is an additional tool in our toolbox, allowing us to facilitate design and construction services while organizing teams, materials, and equipment. Over time, construction management has evolved as the preferred method over the traditional design-bid-build method, more commonly known as general contracting.
With the construction expertise required to professionally manage all aspects of your project from start to finish, you can trust Harbour. We oversee all aspects of your specific build before groundbreaking until long after the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Design Team Management
In construction management contracts, we work closely with the design team to ensure that your project is designed most intelligently to meet your desired goal. We will perform constructability reviews and value engineering assessments throughout various stages of the design process to provide you with essential information to aid in project decision-making.
Rely on us to manage the project while still receiving the advantage of competitively bidding on the individual trade contractor packages with construction management. Harbour will manage the full bid process, including developing bid packages, prequalification of trade contractors, bids receipt, scope reviews, and award recommendations.
We manage the entire close-out process to ensure that all final work is complete, the building is properly commissioned, and your staff receives all necessary training, as-built drawings, warranties, and waivers. Our experience in completing construction management projects in both the public and private sectors allows us to sit at ease knowing your project is in the best hands.
