Employer's Agent / Contract Administration
The Employers Agent (EA) or Contract Administrator (CA) is the named Clients representative under a design and build or traditional contract. They perform the contractual role set out in the contract. The requirements include issuing payment and completion certification and issuing Instructions or Change Orders, amongst other things. In many ways, the role is an extension of the Project Management role into the construction phase and our Project Managers and our Cost Managers are very familiar with this role and understand the standard contract requirements.
In addition, we manage, monitor and control the project on site against the contract requirements and work with other professional design consultants so that information is being delivered in a timely manner to maintain the programme and that specialist design is approved before the work is constructed.
Finally, we look to establish protocols for the smooth handover of the project with appropriate documentation and training as required.
