2 Kenneth J. Harms Vice President Kitchell, CEM Rona G. Rothenberg, FAIA, LEED Green Associate Senior Manager, Design & Construction Services, Judicial Branch Capital Program Office Judicial Council of California-Administrative Office of the Courts

3 Would you accept this deal?  Design a 103 story office building in 2 weeks  Build a $500M project in less than 14 months

4 Built in 1930 for $41M ($8M below budget) in 13 ½ months $500M in today’s dollars CMAR has Been Around for a Very Long time!

5 State and County Authority  SB 1732 – Trial Court Facilities Act of 2002 established the judicial branch authority for facilities, including funding and exemption from the Public Contract Code (PPC)  SB 328 (2013) extends CMAR as a project delivery method to all. (Government Code Section 20146)

6 Construction management at-risk is seen by many policy-makers and legislators as an innovative approach to public sector project delivery. The CM at risk delivery method is an alternative procurement process similar to long-standing private sector construction contracting. CM at-risk is a cost effective and time conscious alternative to the traditional design-bid-build process. “ ” -AIA Washington DC, 2005

7 A project delivery method is fundamentally a people method because people remain the most valuable construction resource. The success or failure of any delivery method depends upon the performance, trust, and cooperation among the parties. “ ” -AGC, Project Delivery Methods for Construction, 2011

8 CMAR Not Using Under Consideration

9 CMAR Public Owners in California

10 CM at Risk Philosophy OWNER A/E CM Collaborative Team Approach Respect the role & responsibility of each team member Develop trust & confidence based on performance Exceed expectations

11 Organization  Procurement and contract structure functional much like a private sector model of the negotiated contract.  Criteria for selection are qualifications based and include competitive bid with preconstruction services. Criteria for selection of the CMAR vary from one jurisdiction to another based on allowable and measurable factors.  In Preconstruction services, the contractor works slid-by-side with architect and owner in the design phase to analyze and select materials equipment based on cost, benefits and availability

12 CM at Risk vs. DBB/Lump Sum Designer InvolvementCM at RiskLow Bid Contractor involvement in Design Phase √ No Owner receives competitive pricing √√ Performance and payment Bonds √√ Ability to Re-bid individual trades √ No Prequalify all subcontractors √ No Field coordination control √√ Commissioning/ Warranty Issues √√ Price Guarantee √ √ * Contractor pays for scope gaps √√ Contractor contingency available for E&O and unanticipated field conditions √ No *Low bid not always final price

13 California SB 1732  Trial Court Facilities Act of 2002 California Code of Regulations Government Code Sections 69202 et seq.  Establishes statutory authority for the State of California Judicial Branch responsibility for court facilities including initial funding source  Section 70374 provides an exemption from the Public Contracts Code, subject to appropriate contracting policies and procedures

14 Trail Court Facilities Program 2002 - Present  Court projects: 46 authorized since 2004  Courtrooms: 1 to 71  Sizes: 6,500 – 704,000 bgsf  Project Cost: $3M – $634M  Estimated Total:$5.5B  Funding: Cash, lease revenue bonds  Project Status in 2014: – 14 Completed – 12 in construction – 20 in design or site acquisition

15 California Judicial Branch Capital Program  Court Facilities Contracting Policies and Procedures, Adopted by the Judicial Council of California on 12/7/07 established multiple construction delivery methods, procedures for procurements of goods and services  Judicial Branch Contracting Manual, CA PCC Sections 9201-19210, became effective 10/1/2011 as an overriding contracting code with certain exemptions pertaining to capital facilities projects

16 CM at Risk Comparison Best Suited Larger new or renovation projects In general projects greater than $7M Least Suited Smaller projects

17 CM at Risk Lessons for Success Owner involvement essential Need clear definition of CM & A/E’s roles Determines preferences for “Agency” vs. “At-Risk” contracts Inform and educate your staff and superiors Establish County internal processes to support CMAR Establish a fundamental attitude toward a collaborative or advocacy approach to the “open- book” type of contract administration, non- adversarial with a spirit of trust about scope, cost and time

18 Benefits to the Owner  Owner chooses their builder on QBS  Project team works in a collaborative atmosphere  Greater schedule control/ flexibility  Greater budget control including re-bid on individual trades if necessary  Pre-qualify all trade contractors  Minimum three bids in each trade  Owner & Architect can participate in sub selection  Lowers potential for future change orders  Perceived as more friendly contracting approach by designers and subcontractors  “Open Book” financial approach

19 Benefits to the Architect  A/E maintains contractual relationship to Owner  Selection of contractor based on qualifications  Contract involvement during design phase  GMP prior to construction

20 Benefits to CMAR Firm  Selected on Best Value not Low Price  Involved in Design Phase  Collaboration vs. Confrontation  Prequalification of Major Trades  Manageable Risk  Known Site Conditions  Quality of Documents

31 CMAR Services

32 CM at Risk Design Phase Services  Management Plan  Budget Estimates  Value Engineering  Constructability Review  Bid Package Strategy  Master Schedule  Construction Schedule  Logistics Planning

33 CM at Risk Bid Process  Pre-Qualify Subcontractors  Advertise to Bid  Invitation/ Instructions to Bidders  Scope of Work Sheets  Pre-Bid Meeting  Public Bid Opening  Evaluate Bids  Owner Assigns Bids to CM at Risk

34 What is a GMP A Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) is the amount that the CM at Risk firm guarantees (the sum of the cost of the work and the CM’s fee) it will not exceed. The maximum is subject to additions and deductions, due to changes in the scope of work. All costs which exceed the GMP and are not approved by change order are paid by the CM.

36 Terms and Requirements which Affect the GMP DVBE, MBE and related goals or requirements OCIP or CCIP Self Performance and terms of procurement Labor agreements Local outreach goals or requirements Subcontractor listing Deductive and additive alternates Terms for administration of the retention

37 CM at Risk - GMP Changes to the GMP  Errors & Omissions  Change of Scope  Unforeseen Conditions Including Force Majaeur CM at Risk Cost (GC’s + Fee + Precon Cost) + Subcontractors Bids = GMP + Contingency (3% controlled by CM) CM at Risk Cost (GC’s + Fee + Precon Cost) + Subcontractors Bids = GMP + Contingency (3% controlled by CM)

42 Lessons Learned from AOC in CMAR  Careful consideration of qualifications  Meticulous checking of references and background  Unimpeachable qualification of low bids  Establish a basis to evaluate the preconstruction services as a condition for the construction contract  Watch out for the “lump sum low bid in disguise” delivered by some CMAR’s

43 Lessons Learned from CM’s  When is GMP Established?  Establishing the GC’s as a baseline allowance in the initial fee proposal  Ownership of Design Errors/ Omissions  Shared Savings Clauses  Contingency Ownership  Self-Perform Work – Yes or No?

44 Contract Key Features CMAR  Scope of work in preconstruction  Contractual obligation for the content of the architects’ documents  Appropriate development of bid packages and prequalification of the subs  Administration of the contractor’s contingency  Administration of the GMAX as an open book process  Re-qualification of the GC’s, consideration of supplemental conditions if needed  Proper field staffing and administration of field documentation

45 What’s Important to AOC  Compliance with design standards which anticipate well-designed, well-constructed buildings that consider long-term ownership costs and needs  Strong partnerships with our architects and contractors which are collaborative advocacies  Good service by you to us and the Courts  That you succeed and are profitable in giving us these things
