Gates Consultants Quantity Surveyors based in Devon - Employers Agent

Employers Agent

Due to the shift in procurement practises in the UK Construction Industry since the late 1990's, a considerable amount of Gates Consultants appoinments are now undertaken in the role of Employer's Agent.

An Employer's Agent role is usually associated with Design and Build Contracts, although the role of Client, or Employer's Representative under other forms of building contracts can be considered broadly similar. It is a role which encompasses the skill set of a Project Manager, Contract Administrator, Cost Consultant and Risk Manager. Therefore, for the role to be successfully undertaken, we believe that only those Consultants who have expertise in all these areas should be appointed by Clients.

We believe that our knowledge, expertise and extensive experience of the associated  procurement method and the forms of contract, gives us a considerable advantage in the market place and provides our Clients with added value.
