Midland Lawyer: Hiring an Owner’s Representative Makes More Sense Than Ever

Warner Partner Jim Rabaut authored an article in the Midland Daily News about how it has become more common for owners to engage owner’s representatives on construction projects. From assisting the owner on selection of an architect and contractor to advising on the scope of work to reviewing and testing cost estimates to approval of draw requests, owner’s reps provide invaluable services. As construction projects and their delivery methods become more complex, it’s no wonder the use of owner’s reps is becoming more popular – protecting owners and investors from increased economic risk.

Jim offers 10 reasons why owners would be wise to consider engaging an owner’s rep on construction projects. You can read the full Midland Daily News article here.
