Back to CMAR-800 Supplementary Conditions of the Construction Manager at Risk Contract (Download)
Prepared by the Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC).
CMAR-800, Supplementary Conditions of the Construction Manager at Risk Contract, contains fundamental provisions affecting the rights and duties of the parties appear in the General Conditions. Language to modify the fundamental relationships between the parties, supplement the framework set forth in the General Conditions, or change the language of the General Conditions, should appear in the Supplementary Conditions. Examples of this are changes in CMAR’s Site responsibilities, and supplemental clauses specifying the details of insurance coverages and limits for the Project.
The EJCDC Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) document series is intended for projects in which the owner retains a construction manager at risk (CMAR) to provide preconstruction services and then construct the project. The Construction Manager at Risk method of delivering projects evolved from traditional design-bid-build by involving the construction contractor early in the project. The new EJCDC CMAR Series is suitable for both public and private work. The series features several documents used for the project owner’s selection of the CMAR, such as a model Request for Qualifications, Statement of Qualifications, and Request for Proposals. The CMAR Series is offered for those projects where an alternative is appropriate—most notably when construction expertise is needed during the design phase, and fast-tracking of work packages will allow for early completion and cost-effective construction. The 2023 CMAR documents are modeled after their industry-standard counterparts in the EJCDC 2018 Construction Series documents, but have been customized to address the nuances of a CMAR project.
EJCDC includes the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Council of Engineering Companies, the Professional Engineers in Private Practice Division of the National Society of Professional Engineers, the Associated General Contractors of America, and the participation of more than fifteen other professional engineering design, construction, owner, legal, and risk management organizations.
EJCDC documents are delivered in Microsoft Word format (file extension *.docx) and sometimes Microsoft Excel format (file extension *.xlsx). Microsoft Word and Excel are required if you wish to edit the files.
