Taking Ownership
Schmidt, Wayne; Kunce, Deb
American School & University, v81 n3 p363-365 Nov 2008
Rapid growth or obsolete facilities can cause an education institution to pursue more construction and renovation projects than ever before. When an education institution has so much construction or remodeling that it has to add staff to manage the projects, it should consider hiring an owner's representative. Hiring an owner's representative can help relieve some of the burden during a major construction project. The authors discuss the benefits of hiring an owner's representative and how to choose a firm that truly represents an institution's point of view. They define the role of an owner's representative and describe the representative's tasks.
