Specialist Employer’s Agent services for Registered Providers’ construction projects

Registered Providers build thousands of affordable homes every year to meet the growing demand for low-cost housing for the communities and local authorities they serve. It’s vital for Registered Providers to have the support of Employer’s Agents to help drive performance throughout a design and build construction programme and to ensure it is completed according to the exact terms of the development contract.

What are Employer’s Agents?

In construction, an Employer’s Agent represents the client (a developer or an investor) throughout a construction project. The Agent sits between its client and the contractor, representing their interests throughout a building contract. Employer’s Agents are responsible for managing the delivery of the project and offer a professional, unbiased advice to the client. This role can be fulfilled by the architect, project manager or cost consultant.
