Employers Agent

Pivotal to the success of your construction project, the Employer’s Agent is your on-site eyes and ears; overseeing all elements of the construction process and ensuring that the project is completed on time, to budget, and to the standard you expect.

The role of Employer’s Agent or EA as it’s often referred to, has become more important in recent years, due to the increase in use of design and build procurement within the construction industry.

Our Employers Agent experts have gained extensive experience of undertaking this service and of advising on the suitability of design and build and its strengths and weaknesses and are proud to cite BAE Systems, Britain’s largest defence contractor in Europe (ranked the seventh-largest in the world!) among the clients who trust us.
