  • "When you're managing a large public program you
    need the public's confidence that tax dollars are

    not? I see a CCM being more than just a person

    manage the entire process but they also know

CMAA/FMI Owners Study
CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • The sixth annual survey has revealed that owners
    are making changes that are revolutionizing the
    construction process.
  • These changes result from a clear realization
    that rather than the costs of raw materials like
    steel and concrete or the cost of labor, the
    biggest cost impacting construction today is that
    of inefficiencies built into the way projects are

CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • Owners are beginning to see how their own
    approaches to construction can actually foster
    inefficiency and raise costs -- or, in contrast,
    how the right strategy can create the kind of
    collaborative and open working environment in
    which jobs are done quickly and done right

CMAA/FMI Owners SurveyOwners Top Concerns
  • Trust and Integrity in the Construction Process
  • Coordination-Collaboration among team members
  • Improved relationships among team members
  • A/E aware of the cost to build their design
  • Bring team members together during design phase
  • Communicate and control a clear scope of work
  • Provide more complete drawings
  • Owners accept responsibility for process
  • Owners need to be more responsive in decision
  • Attain good project definition

Industry Trend?
  • FMI/CMAA 5th Annual Survey had similar results
  • 74 of owners- decline in quality
  • 63 of owners- incomplete designs, Subs are
    completing designs
  • Architects need to be held responsible.

Who Participated
  • Construction Users Roundtable (CURT)
  • Construction Owners Assn. of America (COAA)
  • Northwest Council of Construction Consumers
  • CMAA Owner Members
  • FMI Owner Clients

Who Responded
  • Municipal 27
  • State 21
  • Public Corporation 17
  • Federal 15
  • Private Company 12
  • Quasi-Public 8

CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • 66 of respondents use the design-bid-build
    delivery method most often, but only 23 believe
    that this method offers the best value.
  • Between 40 and 50 of all construction projects
    are running behind schedule.  This finding is
    consistent with previous years surveys. There is
    increasing recognition that much of this delay
    results from inefficiencies built into the way
    projects are managed.

CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • Commissioning runs longer than planned 47 of the
    time, in part because many of those surveyed do
    not have a formal commissioning requirement. 
  • Timelier decision making by owners is the single
    most urgent improvement needed in the
    construction process, a factor cited by 80 of
    all survey respondents.

CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • Trust and integrity are required ingredients for
    improving communications and collaboration, the
    survey says, in contrast to the frequently
    adversarial or arms length relationships
    common in the past.
  • Only 37 of owners use standard contract
    documents provided by CMAA, AIA or other groups,
    while the majority use their own modified or
    proprietary contracts.

CMAA/FMI Owners Survey
  • More than a third of owners said they felt their
    project controls were not adequate, citing
    project management and cost controls as areas
    most in need of improvement.
  • There is a clear trend among government and
    quasi-public owners to break out of the
    design-bid-build pattern and explore other
    options, judging these options on the basis of
    which best meets the needs of a specific project.
