Construction Cost, Complexity Boost Demand For Owners’ Reps


“Construction projects require large investments. Mistakes and delays can be exceptionally costly. Shepherding a construction project from start to finish to make the most of the investment and limit errors is a daunting task, and doing so requires experience and dedicated time. The current COVID-19 pandemic makes the process all the more challenging. All these factors and others are helping increase awareness of the importance of owners’ representatives..

The role of an owner’s representative is to serve as the project leader, to strategize and manage all facets of a construction project in accordance with the owner’s goals. That leadership is vital given many owners don’t have the internal resources to handle the job, says Adam Mopsick, CEO of real estate and construction services firm Amicon Management. Uninformed decisions can mean selecting inappropriate contractors, working from inaccurate initial budgets and mismanaging the construction process, Mopsick adds.” – Jeffrey Steel (Construction Cost, Complexity Boost Demand For Owners’ Reps (
