The last few years have seen owners taking more responsibility to improve their processes by leveraging innovative technology. Owners and CM firms alike have found digital collaborative project management tools and online documentation a way to enhance communication and effectiveness, increase quality, and decrease project costs.
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. Later this year, the CMAA will issue its annual Owner's Survey in collaboration with FMI Management Consultants. This year's survey will focus on the role of technology in addressing bottlenecks in capital projects and this seminar will provide an overview of some items covered in the survey.
CMAA is a national industry association whose mission is "to promote professionalism and excellence in the management of the construction process." Founded in 1982 in response to the ever-increasing need of owners to manage their projects, CMAA is the only organization in North America dedicated exclusively to the interests of professional construction management/program management. CMAA's membership includes 25 regional chapters and more than 4,000 individuals, firms, and agencies throughout the country. CMAA represents a broad spectrum of the design and construction industry, including CM practitioners, public and private owners, design professionals, contractors, attorneys, insurers, services consultants, educators, and students throughout the United States and internationally.
