Owner’s Representation

We bring complex projects to fruition.

We provide our expertise in Owner’s Representation to make the design and construction process more efficient by focusing on solutions to problems, and above all, we represent our clients to advocate for their best interests in all phases of project development.

An owner’s representative is experienced in construction, real estate, and architecture, and manages relationships with general contractors, architects, municipal authorities and financial institutions involved in a project. Working with an owner’s representative will save you time and money, by managing budgets, schedules and any conflicts that may arise within project entities or teams.

SUMAC is dedicated to working closely with each of our clients to develop a strong business relationship in order to meet your needs and achieve the highest level of satisfaction.

Scope

1Our basic tier is recommended for those clients with sufficient experience and capacity to manage a project. This level of service includes remote support with monthly meetings and on-site reviews to ensure that the project moves in the right direction and that the execution is adequate. 

2Our intermediate tier is recommended for clients who require more monitoring but who have their own supervision team. It consists of a combination of both remote and on-site assistance several times a month in order to assist in project management, consulting, and general benchmarking of the project’s progress.

3 Our highest tier, which is recommended for clients who do not have experience in design construction or who have few resources at hand to carry out the management of a project, offers permanent assistant throughout all phases of project development and features representation on site.

Our experience in both, international and local projects, gives us a deeper understanding of the diverse cultures and locations where we manage projects, allowing us direct teams and communicate with them effectively.
