As CM promotes the use of separate trade contractors for various specialist sections of the work, it can allow a substantial overlap between design, bidding and construction, providing a reduction in the overall programme. Alternatively earlier construction start results in longer design and planning periods and optional construction periods, which result in closer control of cost of quality. Throughout the project Ricon provides effective managerial control an absolute must for complex projects.

Unlike main contracting, the specialist trade contractors are selected be competitive tendering and placed in direct contract with the client, giving the client a greater level of involvement and control of the whole process. In this way, it retains the element of real financial competition at the level where it matters most, in between specialist trade contractors.

Due to greater control over trade contractors, project preliminaries and the ability to tender very competitively, the overall project cost can be greatly reduced. see figure below
