What Is An Owner's Representative?


An Owner's Representative acts as an extension of the Owner managing the day-to-day operations of a project. The Owner's Representative can advise and represent the Owner from the earliest stages of the project, starting with conceptual design, through the final design, permitting, pre-construction, bidding construction, commissioning, move-in and preliminary occupancy stages.


As owner’s representative, we serve as an extension of the owner.   BUILDX provides guidance through the lifecycle of your project, protecting the owner’s interests at all times.


BUILDX provides owners with the value-added resources they will need to make their project a success. For an owner who may not have the required depth of resources to look after each component of a project, BUILDX literally serves as an extension of the owner.


As the project’s “eyes and ears,” we can provide on-site representation to make sure that construction proceeds in accordance with the owners needs and desires, on time and within budget. Working as your advocate, BUILDX experience staff enables owner to focus on their day to day life without project distractions.


BUILDX’S experienced construction professionals have hands-on skills and knowledge that are applied throughout each phase of a project. We provide clients with this technical knowledge to keep you abreast of events, enabling you to make informed and timely decisions.


Owner’s Representative services include:


  • Analyzing constructability

  • Advising the owner on project delivery systems and forms of contracts

  • Serving as a single point of contact between contractors and designers

  • Representing the owner at key meetings

  • Monitoring the project schedule and budget

  • Auditing quality assurance/quality control procedures

  • Assisting in evaluating contractor payment requests

  • Providing monthly reporting

  • Facilitating issue resolution


The Owner:


The Owner maintains ALL decision making authority and all contractual relationships flow back to the Owner.

As an extension of the Owner, the Owner's Representative interfaces with all project vendors, contractors, and suppliers tracking issues and facilitating and expediting solutions. The Owner's Representative will be responsible for maintaining clear and concise communications, keeping accurate records and thorough documentation throughout all phases of the project.


We represent your interest only.

Not the interest of the design team or contractors. We are your eyes and ears on the job site, ensuring you the quality you expect, completed on time and within budget.

The difference between an Owner's Representative and a Construction Manager is that a Construction Manager concentrates on the tasks, not potential issues that may arise. An Owner's Representative is actively weighing the consequences of all tasks, from all of the disciplines involved in the project.

BUILDX Owner's Representatives have cross disciplinary skill sets, freeing your Architect to focus on the project's design and your other team members to focus on their specific role. The Owner's Representative is much like the conductor in a symphony, making sure that all of the talented musicians play on key and in harmony to produce a pleasing and successful concert (project).

The Owner's Representative provides the Owner with a "scaled-down" version of construction management services and would mainly be used when there are only one or two prime contracts directly between the Owner and the Contractor(s). BUILDX can supply an on-site representative, as well as office personnel for administration and support.
