The need for the Owner’s Representative often arises when an owner does not have staff with relevant experience or availability to manage owner’s responsibilities or when an owner decides to transfer key owner contractual risks to an Owner’s Representative.
Thus, the typical owner responsibilities can be generally limited to making timely decisions, providing timely information, making timely payments, and providing liability insurance coverage. The Owner’s Representative provides the professional skills and services that supplement the owner’s staff to manage almost all of the remaining owner’s responsibilities under a construction contract. Owner’s Representative services can extend across the full spectrum of project development, design, construction, commissioning, operations and maintenance.
