Employer’s Agent

Coppard Giles Chartered Surveyors can provide a wide range of Employer's Agent services for clients, drawing on extensive experience in administering and managing contracts.

This role is usually where a client wishes to procure a new building which is either uncomplicated or the repeat of a previous design where a Design & Build procurement route has been selected. The Employer's Agent can undertake a variety of roles, depending on the individual project and client needs, and Coppard Giles regularly tailor our services to suit the precise requirements of an individual client.

The Design & Build procurement route offers a number of advantages to clients at the beginning of a project to enable a rapid start to be made. However, if your building is complex, you are looking for flexibility or further design development, Design & Build may not be the best option.

  • Appraisal of sites.
  • Selection and appointment of consultants.
  • Preparing project brief and scope.
  • Feasibility studies and advice.
  • Project planning, obtaining third party advice and comment.
  • Control procedures.
  • Maintaining risk registers.
  • Administering building contracts.
  • Preparing regular reports against programme and financial targets.
  • Attending meetings, representing the client.
  • Issuing instructions and certificates.
  • Plan and manage hand-over procedures.
