Eastern Construction is the General Contractor for QRC Phase 2 - they are mobilized and on-site. First photo shows the area behind the existing buildings - site preparation activities are underway, with utility relocations and clearances being done. Gutting of the existing building has also started, working from access on the rear laneway.
Not to be pedantic - but they are the Construction Manager for the project - not the GC. They performed the same role For Phase 1.
Typically for "larger" development projects such as this, the CM is hired by the client, Allied, and takes on the project management and "GC" role. Typically Eastern would hold the large contracts with the various subtrades.Thanks for the clarification. As a Construction Manager, would Eastern be in a project management and advisory role to the client, Allied, as opposed to having overall responsibility for the construction on a stipulated sum basis, while all the contractual agreements for the suppliers and trades be with Allied itself, as opposed to Eastern? What would the major differences be between the construction manager compared to the general contractor roles?
Meanwhile - a couple of photos of the ongoing site preparations.
