As an Owner’s Representative we provide professional experience in both the design and construction process. When hired by the owner to represent them we act as their “eyes and ears”, while always maintaining a global view of the goals of the project.
Construction Consulting of Maine is thereby tasked with overall management of the whole project, guarding the owner’s best interests in all decision making. We tailor our services to meet the owner’s needs including the design/budgeting phase, procurement, construction administration, or simply on an as needed basis.
The Owner’s Representative’s role is not as the ultimate decision maker on the project, but rather an advisor to the owner. At any phase of a project when the owner is faced with construction challenges, the Owner’s Representative’s responsibility is to present viable options and assist the owner in making informed decisions.
While the term Owner’s Representative may sometimes be used interchangeably with Project Manager, it should not to be confused with the General Contractor or Construction Manager’s Project Manager, responsible for and focused on directing the construction operations of the contractor. As an Owner’s Representative, we function as a valued extension of the owner’s staff and work as an integral member of the owner’s team.
Why hire Construction Consulting of Maine as an Owner’s Representative?
- The owner may not be in close proximity to where the construction project is taking place
- The owner and/or staff may be too busy to be able to devote the time to manage a construction project
- The owner and/or staff may not have the experience or expertise in-house to oversee a large or complex building project
Therefore, we believe our clients’ primary focus should be on what they do best, running their business and providing quality services or products to their clients.
