Rapp's CM-AA Services

With our CM-AA services, we serve as an advisor and manager for the project owner. Our primary responsibility is to protect the owner’s interests by managing the project’s time, cost, quality, and scope. This includes advising on cost estimation, scheduling, constructability, value engineering, overseeing contract administration, and ensuring quality control during construction.

Unlike other project delivery methods, a CM-AA does not bear the financial risk of completing the project. Instead, the focus is on offering expert management and advisory services to guide the project to successful completion.
