Architects and Contractors… Who’s the Project Manager?

At New Avenue we are often asked what we charge for the Project Manager.
The short answer, is our network of proven architects and contractors manage the design and construction so well that a project manager would be a waste of time and money.
Architects manage the design and permitting. Contractors manage all of the sub-contractors and on-site construction.  With this done right, there is no need for an extra project manager.
 An hourly project manager fee would be redundant to the services the architect and contractor should provide.  That fee would be $100/hour or more and that adds up to $30,000 or more during the course of a project.  It is a waste of your money.  Even worse, you can get a project manager who ends up playing the telephone game and relaying messages back and forth between the owner, architects and builder. Our platform does that for free, and it has a better memory than any person can ever have! 🙂
Part of the role of the contractor is to be your on-site project manager.   If your project is big enough (near or over $1,000,000) then your contractor will most likely have a site foreman who acts as a project manager. This person is part of the contractor’s crew.  Part of the role of your architect is to provide an addition pair of eyes and the professional opinion as a design professional.  All of these services are quoted and billed hourly.
