COSPER - OWNER
In 1991, Tom, after taking early retirement
from the corporate world and settling in Palm Harbor Florida, became a
licensed, state certified contractor, (no. CRC 057079). Having been in
and around the construction industry for many years, he saw a need for
the more cost effective construction management concept as an
alternative to the traditional contractors high overhead and profit
With that in mind, he
founded CCM where his experience, organizational skills and proven
ability to handle complex projects serve him well.
He also brought into play the interior design
talents of Marilyn Cosper. Her expertise serves both the client and
company in various detailed selections needed to build and complete a
As their business has grown, the need for
additional experienced help was needed to form a team. This team now
included an Office Manager/Accountant, Operations Manager and Field
CCM differs from most builders in that we use
the “Construction Management System” for most projects. In this
concept, the Owner retains financial control instead of surrendering
their money to a builder to spend for them. The Construction Management
System requires a comprehensive, line item budget as the financial basis
of each project, which CCM makes completely visible to our clients.
Since the Owner is in control of the funds, all invoices are verified
first by CCM, and then forwarded to the client, who writes their own
checks directly to the payees. Each check is processed through the CCM
office for control, before disbursement to the payees, while lien
releases are collected in the process. Building this way, the Owner
knows where every penny of their money goes. It is the safest way for
an Owner to build financially and using this system, we have never had a
lien filed on one of our projects. This open book, straight forward
approach is not only popular with our clients, but with their lenders,
accountants and attorneys as well.
CCM adheres to the
philosophy of honesty, integrity and respect for clients, vendors and
subcontractors and our daily decisions reflect these values.
Construction Management Inc. would be pleased to help you build or
remodel the home of your dreams – we are only a call away!
