Construction Management

A Full Team Concept

Construction Management in TexasConstruction Management is a professional service that provides a construction project’s owner(s) with effective management of the project's schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope, and function. Construction Management is compatible with all project delivery methods. No matter the setting, a Construction Manager’s (CMs) responsibility is to the owner and to a successful project.

At its core, a capital construction project is made up of three parties (excluding the Construction Manager):

  • The Owner, who commissions the project and either funds the project directly or finances it through a variety of methods.
  • The Architect/Engineer, who designs the construction project.
  • The Construction Manager, who oversees day-to-day operations and manages Trades Contractors.

DSA Construction Management represents the owner’s interest and provides oversight over the entire construction project directly for the owner. His/her mandate is to work with all parties to deliver the project on time, at or under budget, and to the owner’s expected standard of quality, scope, and function.
