Construction Management              

Construction Management delivery is extremely effective means of managing a project wherein the owner or designated representatives are typically involved in the selection of subcontractors and work within the team environment design to meet the objectives of the specific project. Hawthorne will provide a complete management team best suited for the specific project criteria; typically consisting of a Project Executive, Project Manager, Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Estimator, Accounting and Administrative support staff.

The “CM” delivery method provides seamless transition between all phases of design, preconstruction and construction. Hawthorne will coordinate the activities of the entire project team. We will work with the owner and design team on the delivery of all aspects of the project from concept, design development through completion. This team based approach will maintain real-time, accurate and timely budget ensuring cohesion with design objectives.

This “CM” approach allows the client to keep a pulse on the project and to always be aware of any unforeseen escalations in project scope and be part of the decision making process. Through the process the Hawthorne Team will continue to look for additional value engineering opportunities while maintaining strict cost control, update schedules, quality control, safety programs and accurate project deliverables.


Our management team at Hawthorne has extensive experience in the Design/Build process. Utilizing the Design/Build approach provides our clients with the assurance of Single-Source responsibility for Design and Construction, enables them to focus directly on core business activities while still achieving project objectives.

In this role, Hawthorne will utilize its management experience as architects, engineers and construction managers to develop a “Design Team” suited for the specific project criteria. From concept to project completion Hawthorne will use a collaborative approach to ensure open communications and that project objectives are exceeded.  This Single-Source responsibility method provides a more seamless delivery approach producing faster results while maintaining tightest financial controls, resulting in projects that are completed on time and under budget. Acting as a Single-Source provider from the beginning of the project allows Hawthorne to implement project controls that minimize any exposure to the client from cost overruns and typically result in the most successful of projects from the client’s perspective.

Our team has successfully managed over 20 Design/Build projects for such clients as the US Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Veteran Affairs and the National Energy Business Center while working with such design and engineering firms as; Harriman Associates, Maguire Group and Nave-Newell.


Hawthorne knows that understanding all components of any construction project begins with understanding all that is involved within the design and engineering well before the first shovel enters the ground.

Our preconstruction team will work collaboratively with the design teams, engineers and owners to develop the best constructability methods with respect to efficient budgets. Our clients benefit from Hawthorne’s experience and ability to provide reliable estimates, value engineering, scope development, product evaluations, design review, scheduling and MEP trade coordination.
