An Employers Agent works as the Contract Administrator for Design and Build Contracts on behalf of the client, taking on the roles of Lead Consultant, Project Manager and Cost Consultant. The Employers Agent is also in charge of ensuring that the work is completed to the client’s specifications, for quality control and cost management.
The Employers Agent represents the Client and, due to their position, is able to adopt an objective approach, ensuring that the project’s best interests are preserved at all times. This is especially vital for preserving connections and forming a collaborative team capable of overcoming any challenges that may develop throughout the course of the project.
A competent Employers Agent must be skilled and knowledgeable in project delivery, as well as have a thorough understanding of design and build contracts. They provide guidance and management throughout the design, tender and construction phases, whilst ensuring that the scope, cost, quality and time elements of the project are maintained.
