CM AGENT/
ENHANCED CLERK SERVICES

Keep the construction experts on site for your civic and K-12 School Districts. From early planning stages through project closeout, our experience with K-12 and civic construction projects of all types and sizes has led us to become a leading construction management agency and trusted provider across New York.

 

As your exclusive Construction Management (CM) Agent, DGA Builders will optimize your use of available funds; control of the scope of the work; handle scheduling; optimize design; coordinate the best available labor; avoid delays, changes, and disputes; enhance construction design and quality; and assist in contracting and procurement. DGA offers a fee-based service in which your assigned agent is exclusively responsible for your projects and acts in your best interest throughout each stage of the project, saving your time, effort, and costs in the long run.

School districts and municipalities appreciate our dependability, performance and efficiency when they need durable construction to last future generations. Clients call on us routinely to assess situations on their properties without them having to make a long drive to the building in question- they're there within minutes and exclusively dedicated to your properties. As always, trust and reliability are trademarks of DGA. Our CM Agents deliver the same quality work we’ve been providing for over 40 years, and continue to set the bar higher for municipal and academic establishments.

In addition to the typical on-site services of a construction, DGA provides enhanced Clerk-of-the-Works services that accommodate the budget of any construction budget and schedule. These services are specifically designed for the needs of each project to provide levels of pre-referendum, pre-construction and construction phase management/monitoring services to a district’s project team in an affordable per diem payment model.
