Project owners are seeking more involvement and participation in the pre-construction phase from construction managers and contractors. There is growing concern that as project delivery methods such as Integrated Project Delivery demand that project stakeholders provide owners with input into many issues, such as schedules, budgets and design, their liability increases well beyond what was originally anticipated. Many firms are concerned that early involvement in the project may place an implied “stamp” of ownership or approval on the project’s design and financial outcome without such risks being fully understood.
