What Does an Owner’s Representative Do?

The owner’s representative acts on behalf of the owner and advocates for their goals throughout a building project. They ensure that the owner receives a proper closeout and experiences a successful move-in.

If you’re an owner and don’t have the time nor the expertise to handle a building project, your owner’s representative will handle it for you. They’re experts in construction, architecture, and real estate. They manage the relationships with architects, general contractors, construction companies, government authorities, and banks associated with your project. And they typically work through each stage from conception to design, construction, completion, and closeout.

National Builders can serve as your owner’s representative. In addition, we provide the services when you cannot manage a building project or need additional building expertise to work on your behalf during construction.
