OWNER’S REP SERVICES
The Owner’s Rep/Project Manager is typically a 3rd party (individual or company) that is hired by the Owner to represent them during site selection, design and construction phases as well as relocation.
First we provide an OBJECTIVE. A thoughtful and realistic objective. We work with Owners, designers and builders to align expectations of project TIMELINE, SCOPE and BUDGET, in order to deliver a project that meets or exceeds expectations.
Thoughtful planning and diligent communication will always save money and reduce stress. A construction project involves many layers, and many decisions.
Often a home is the most important investment for an Owner, and there are aesthetic and budgetary filters that influence all decsions.
Often, the best place to start is by asking the right question(s) and understanding available resources, followed by building a realistic project schedule and budget.
In order to achieve our objective, we work closely with our clients and chosen team. We consistently create alignment while using the following basic procedures,
