You Should Know

An Owner's Representative represents the employer/client on a construction project. That may be a developer, investor, or property owner/tenant. As the Owner's Representative (OR) needs to have the authority to manage the construction project on behalf of the employer, it’s important that the employer appoints someone whom they can trust to be competent.

The owner's representative by virtue of their position, is able to take an objective approach, ensuring that the best interests of the project are maintained at all times. This is particularly important to protect relationships and build a collaborative team that is able to overcome any obstacles that may arise during the life of the project.

A competent OR must be experienced and knowledgeable in delivering construction projects whilst also having an in depth understanding of design and build contracts. They provide direction and management through the design, tender and construction stages, whilst controlling the scope, cost, quality and time.

In addition to managing risk and ensuring adequate apportionment in the design and build contract, the OR is fundamental to maintaining channels of communication regarding the progress of the project to the project team and all stakeholders. Furthermore, the EA communicates the goals and performance to employer/client, and investors where required, in regularly scheduled reports.
