Construction Estimating and Cost Management




Owner Representation

Alvarez & Associates LLC will provide assurance that the Owner will have a highly experienced construction professional on their side. This relieves the burden of managing the many complex relationships and information associated with the building process. During the life cycle of a project, the Owner is faced with many responsibilities such as securing approvals, the hiring of specialty consultants, establishing an accurate construction budget and subcontracting certain portions of the work. Many times these responsibilities are difficult to define between parties and not in the normal scope of either the Architect or the Contractor. The Owner is usually tasked with contracting and coordinating the entire team and at times this becomes a full time job requiring a high level of expertise. We understand that an Owner has the reasonable expectation of building a project of the highest possible quality with tight cost control and delivered on the best possible schedule. This is a difficult standard to achieve without professional Owner representation. Our service allows the Owner to concentrate only on aspects of the project that will maximize use, enjoyment and value for them.
