Your Advocate, Every Step of the Journey


What is an Owner's Representative?

If you’ve never had to manage a construction project for your company before, it might be time to hire an expert. An owner’s representative from Journey Construction is your advocate on the job site. They are your liaison for the entire project—you communicate with them, and they relay your instructions to the team. Whether or not you’ve already hired your construction team, adding an owner’s representative from Journey Construction Group ensures that your best interests are carried out.

Why Hire an Owner’s Representative from Journey Construction?

Clear Communication

Journey Construction will provide one point of contact for your construction project. That way, your communication to the construction team is streamlined through your owner’s representative. This keeps the project running smoothly with no misunderstandings.

Expert Direction

An owner’s representative from Journey Construction is an expert in directing and communicating with a team of builders. You can trust their decision-making and leadership on the project, and you can rest assured that they’ll give you timely updates as needed. Think of an owner’s representative as a consultant—if you have questions, they have answers.


With an owner’s representative, you have one person to manage everything for you. If you haven’t hired your construction team yet, our owner’s representatives can do that for you. Then, they can act on your behalf to make sure the project stays on budget. By serving as your advocate, they protect your most valuable commodity: time.

Risk Reduction

Our owner’s representatives will always have your best interests in mind. They will advocate for you in every decision. And they can keep an eye out for potentially costly pitfalls in the process. That’s why it’s important to hire an owner’s representative with years of experience in a wide variety of construction projects.

Frequently Asked Questions About Owner’s Representatives

An owner’s representative acts on behalf of the owner of the business that requested the building project. They are the voice of the owner on the job site and relay relevant information about the project back and forth from the owner to the site. They also manage the master budget, schedule and project quality on the owner’s behalf. An owner’s representative from Journey is an extension of your team at every stage of building. 

Every project is unique in its scope. We start conversations with business owners early in order to determine costs. Our owner’s representative team is typically paid as a percentage of construction on the overall project costs or as a monthly retainer based upon a specific project scope.
If you have never managed a construction project for your company, you will want to hire an owner’s representative. All building projects require a team that understands construction—and with Journey as your owner’s rep, you have a team of experts on your side!
