Open Book Construction Management

 Church Development Services will oversee the construction of your facility using a contracting method known as Open Book Construction Management (OBCM).


Open Book: Everything is 100% open and transparent to the church. For every subcontractor and supplier, the church can see every bid, every award, every invoice, every check, and will see monthly reconciliations.


Construction Management: You pay the subcontractor and suppliers directly, and we manage the project and process. This reduces the financial risk to the church and allows the church to get the lowest real price on a line-item-by-line-item basis instead of picking a GC with the lowest overall budget.


We believe it provides the best solution for the church. The method inherently provides the lowest cost of construction and gives the church the utmost control and unparalleled transparency — you know where every dollar is spent and why.


Our implementation of OBCM is a Design/Build process utilizing an Integrated Project Delivery model, except that instead of a fixed maximum price, we help the church build for the lowest real cost.


Open Book Construction Management is not just something we preach — it is how we build our own churches.
