Owner's Representation

Owners are not always in a position to dedicate the appropriate amount of time required to manage a specific construction project. In those instances, an owner representative can be the crucial difference in achieving your project objectives. DWI takes the role of Owner Representative very seriously, working with clients to establish strategies, set responsibilities, and exceed expectations.

 

We utilize our extensive experience to manage the development and construction process on the owner’s behalf so they can remain focused on the big picture. DWI will challenge both the owner and the team based on fresh ideas, and lessons learned from other projects. We document project progress, address issues, and focus on the project’s schedule and budget while ensuring overall quality.

  • Project team development and leadership
  • Schedule development and tracking
  • Budget tracking and reporting
  • Regular project updates / task management
  • Owner / Architect / Contractor (OAC) meetings
  • Tracking of open items and responsibilities
  • Contract administration
  • Site Inspections
  • Payment application review
  • Change order review
  • FF&E coordination
  • Specialty consultant coordination
  • Troubled project turn-around
