Sundt is an industry leader with the innovative contracting method called Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR). This delivery method offers a number of time and cost savings advantages.

With CMAR, Sundt is selected as construction manager and general contractor early in the design phase. We work closely with your architect to examine alternate materials, systems, and equipment for cost, quality and availability. We then perform constructability reviews and offer value engineering suggestions. 64_corr_webviewThis early coordination fosters collaboration and focuses the entire team on finding the best solutions for your construction project.
