Once Trustees and the CM have agreed upon a GMP, the Trustees will award a construction agreement to the CM
incorporating the Contract General Conditions and Supplementary General Conditions.
The Trustees’ construction administrator and the CM shall co-conduct a preconstruction conference with the trade
contractors, design personnel, and other appropriate Trustees’ staff. The CM preconstruction conference services
include preparation of meeting agenda, preparation of job procedures for clarifications, change orders, shop
drawings, progress payments, field testing and inspection, safety, and preparation and distribution of
preconstruction conference notes.
After reaching agreement with the Trustees on a GMP, and the construction contract between the CM and the
Trustees is fully executed, the CM shall enter into contracts for the construction phase with the successful
subcontractors in each trade.
Refer to Stage 5, Construction, for additional information on the Construction Phase.
