Abstract

The role of the Owner’s Representative on an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) project is described and contrasted with those of an Owner’s Project Manager on a traditionally executed project. Key functions, roles and responsibilities, decision- making and behaviors are identified. These include the Owner’s Representative role on the Core Team, the focus on value to the owner, and the way objectives in tension are managed and resolved by the team with support from the Owner’s Representative
