Hired by the owner, an owner’s representative is a construction professional representing their interests throughout each stage of construction. With years of experience in project development from conception through design, construction, and closeout, an owner’s representative offers valuable, unbiased advice to ensure a project meets the owner’s goals and objectives.

Below are some core services that an owner’s representative provides:

  • Property condition assessment
