CMAA Mission & Vision
The Mission of CMAA is to promote the profession of Construction Management and the use of qualified Construction Managers on capital projects and programs.
The Vision of CMAA is that all owners will realize capital project and program success by using professionally qualified Construction Managers.
CMAA is leading the growth and acceptance of construction management as a professional discipline that can add significant value to the entire construction process, from conception to ongoing operation.
Membership in CMAA includes more than 14,000 firms and individuals. Owners, engineers, architects, contractors, educators, students...everyone with a stake in the construction industry's success.
All parties to a project are vitally interested in excellence of execution--including rapid completion, high fidelity to specifications, conscientious cost control, and optimum use of all resources. Professional construction management delivers these values.
What Does CMAA Represent?
The professional construction management services concept has grown out of a universal recognition throughout the design and construction community that quality-focused, cost-effective, dispute- and injury-free project delivery does not occur without a deliberate commitment and effort to manage the project delivery process. The cost and complexity of today’s capital projects, the importance of time, and the need to deal with unanticipated events and unforeseen conditions all argue the need for an integrated and managed approach to planning, design, and construction of the built environment.
Owners are faced with an array of project delivery options, each of which involves costs and benefits matched against the needs of the owner and the specific project. The task of management is to ensure that the value of those various project delivery methodologies is realized in achieving the owner’s objectives.
Professional construction management services are selected on the basis of qualifications and experience matched to the needs of the owner and the project and compensated on the basis of a negotiated fee for the scope of services rendered. This approach results in a cost-effective, dedicated representation of the owner’s interests free from potential conflicts with regard to the cost of the project.
