The services we offer
Employer’s Agent and Contract Administration

An Employer’s Agent represents a Client during a construction project. The Agent sits between its Client and the Contractor, representing their Client’s interests throughout a building contract, usually covering the design and build phases of a development.

When projects are being constructed via a design and build route, BWA’s Employer’s Agents work towards budget, time, quality and safety objectives to meet the clients’ needs. BWA’s collaborative approach uses established tools for clear communication and reporting which enables us to manage the project from start to finish effectively.
