Construction Management Reporting Structure

As a Construction Management Agency, ECS typically serves as the Owner's Representative and uses the format shown below to direct our projects. This format allows us to dictate certain stipulations for the design team and all the contractors in order to effectively lead your project, cut capital costs and keep everyone on schedule.   


Keys to Highly Successful Projects Are As Noted Below:

  • The Architect's contract is with the Owner and they report directly to ECS. 
  • The Civil, Structural, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers' contracts are with the Owner and they report directly to ECS. Depending on the needs of the project, one or more of these engineers may work under the Architect, but the engineers also work directly with ECS. 
  • The General Contractor's contract is with the Owner and they report directly to ECS.  
  • The Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Contractors' contracts are with the Owner (instead of under the General Contractor) and they report directly to ECS. Depending on the needs of the project, these contractors may work under the General Contractor, but they also work directly with ECS.  
  • Fire Suppression, Fire Alarm, Security, Technology and Other Subcontractors' contracts are with the General Contractor, but they also work directly with ECS.
  • Process & Packaging Machinery Suppliers' contracts are with the Owner and they report directly to ECS. 
  • Owner employees who are providing services for the project may also report to ECS.
