The Difference Between an Owner’s Rep, Project Manager & Construction Manager

Construction titles and roles can easily get confusing, especially when they get tossed around incorrectly. Before starting a new construction project in South Florida, it’s important to know who does what so you can be sure to hire the best of the best in each respective area.

Below we’ll break down the difference between an owner’s representative, project manager and construction manager. We’ll also explain why each of these roles is important to the success of your build.

What is an Owner’s Representative?

Owner’s reps work on behalf of you, the project owner. They serve as your on-the-ground construction expert and advocate every step of the way to ensure the build is being executed according to your wishes. They monitor technical aspects as well as manage and approve change orders. Owner’s representatives take your vision and apply their construction expertise to ensure the project is successfully completed on time and on budget.

What is a Project Manager?

Project managers play an essential role in keeping your construction project moving forward. They are heavily involved in planning and developing the construction schedule and serve as liaisons between the numerous subcontractors involved in the project. They play an active role in managing the day-to-day work so that your build stays on budget and avoids cost overruns.

What is a Construction Manager?

The role of a construction manager is to manage the cost of construction and the process of construction. They do things like oversee cost-saving measures by suggesting material alternatives when needed, manage cost estimates during the design phase and manage the construction portion of the project’s budget. They also oversee other construction logistics and ensure a quality team is assembled and coordinated effectively.
