Project delivery method
When Contractor comes in the CM as advisor and CM as a agent delivery method. I just see subcontractor after bidding. Why is that ?
This is because there is no general contractor with the CMa method. The CMa acts as resource to the owner for the purpose of monitoring and overseeing the work, and the CMa will advise the owner on decisions pertaining to change orders, payments, schedule, progress, quality of workmanship, and conformance to the contract documents. The CMa takes over part of the architect's role. And ultimately the owner assumes more risk with this method, since there is no general contractor.
Hope this helps!
