About the program and current projects

Construction Manager / General Contractor

Construction Manager / General Contractor (CMGC) is an integrated approach to planning, designing and constructing a project. Owners, designers and contractors work collaboratively to develop the project scope, optimize the design, improve quality and manage cost. 

MnDOT's CMGC Program

In 2012, the Minnesota Legislature enacted a law authorizing MnDOT to use the CMGC delivery method. The 2012 law authorized MnDOT to award up to four CMGC projects in any calendar year, not to exceed 10 total CMGC projects.
