Employer’s Agent & Contract Administrator

Design and build procurement in the UK construction industry has undergone a transformation, with Employer’s Agents regularly utilised to ensure quality of build, particularly in complex projects.

Ridgeways has a wealth of experience acting as Employer’s Agent (EA), a role that is part project manager, part contract administrator and part cost manager.

The duties performed as EA are dependent upon client needs but typically include cost planning and advice on tendering procedures and contract arrangements; preparing the employer’s requirements and tender documentation; and compiling formal contractual documentation.

Once work has commenced, the EA will manage and co-ordinate the works, including site meetings and recording progress on site; prepare interim valuations, progress and cost reports; and assess the cost of any change required. Finally, the EA will oversee snagging, check and agree final accounts, and organise final handover of the project.

Ridgeways has consistently demonstrated the ability to deliver on time and on budget, ensuring the project is managed successfully and meets the client’s requirements regarding quality and functionality.
