Employers Agent

Employers Agent

As a chartered project management practice, Logic PM is able to offer Employers Agent services to clients. Our Employers Agent function is generally delivered through design and build construction contracts covering:

1. The areas of setting performance
2. Related quality standards and how they are associated with the contract
3. Cost, time and monitoring of works on site including general contract administration duties. The role may also encompass co-ordination of the tender process and establishment of project budgets.

As independent project managers, Logic PM are ideally placed to outline the benefits of different procurement methods and how you as client will benefit from clear contractual obligations in terms of achieving quality standards, as well as time and cost savings.

Logic PM will advise you on the range of procurement routes available at the outset of your project. These options available will depend upon the client and the size and type of building under consideration.
