Advantages of Hiring an Owner’s Representative for a Remodel

Project owners want to feel secure in knowing that the job is getting done. They want all aspects of their project to be done on-time and on-budget. They want to know that the best team has been assembled to work on their project and that their progress is being tracked, responsibly.

Most project owners don’t have the time to handle all of this themselves. Hiring an owner’s representative is one of the best ways to ensure everything falls into place. The best owner’s representatives keep project owners out of the daily details but provide regular project updates. There are several advantages to hiring an owner’s representative:

They Facilitate Communication

A construction team consists of many individuals—architects, contractors, legal and accounting teams, and subcontractors—each with their individual roles. But, none of these individuals oversee the big picture. Having a single person facilitating communication across the team will keep the project running smoothly and keep misunderstandings from happening.

They Help You Stay on Budget

The budget is one of the most important aspects of a project. Owner’s representatives monitor a project’s budget and tracks expenses, ensuring that the project stays on budget – perhaps the most important thing for anyone undergoing a new project. Having someone constantly monitor the budget will often lead to cost savings for project owners – not to mention, peace of mind.

They Keep Things on Schedule

Because most owners have other jobs, overseeing a large-scale commercial project can become a huge burden. Owner’s representatives handle the heavy lifting. One of their most important tasks is creating a master schedule and keeping track of it.

Owner’s representatives also outline the roles and responsibilities of team members, ensuring that no details are overlooked. Top-notch owner’s representatives have well-established relationships in the industry and community so that they can help hire the best subcontractors and others to work on the project. All of this keeps things on schedule.

Because of their vast knowledge of the industry and organizational skills, owner’s representatives produce the highest-quality projects. They keep things flowing so that projects stay on time and on budget.
