Construction Management Agency

What distinguishes our approach to construction management agency services is that we protect the client’s budget and schedule as if it were our own. Through a hands-on project management approach, Watson provides owners with:

  • Subcontractor selection
  • Constructability analysis
  • Proactive schedule management
  • Document management
  • Quality control
  • Realistic cost estimating through value engineering

We act as the client’s designated representative and work in partnership with the design and construction team from the pre-design phase to construction and occupancy in order to minimize owner risk.


The Watson Organization and its partners have provided Design-Build services for a variety of owners. These projects have ranged from correctional and institutional projects to commercial office, retail, and public assembly facilities. Collaboration is key to a successful design-build project. Working as a single entity, our companies and the design team partner with the owner and subcontractors to meet fast-track schedules while achieving budget, quality, and schedule goals. Integrated design and construction planning are critical to this approach.

Paramount to the success of Design-Build is understanding the delivery system and utilizing the many talents of a well defined team. Success is measured by open communication, overcoming challenges and execution!

Estimating and Pre-Construction

Delivering a project without preconstruction is a missed opportunity to maximize savings in time and cost. The Watson Organization provides estimating to evaluate a project’s constructability while identifying the best means for achieving the budget while maintaining design intent. Key to the preconstruction process is collaboration. Our staff work with the architect and owner to make early decisions that minimize the number of change orders during construction. This is an iterative process; we take pride that our staff are flexible and open-minded while being realistic. We want you, the owner, to achieve your ultimate goals at the best value. And we know that if we do our job well during preconstruction, building the project will be easy!
