Pray Works MeetingAdvocating for Owners. Integrating Vendors. Improving Process and Profit.

An owner’s representative is a trusted advisor within the built environment who acts as the advocate for an owner who may lack internal expertise in the design/construction sector and is embarking on a meaningful new design/build project.

The role of the owner’s representative is to maintain a horizontal relationship between the owner and the Architect, Engineer, Contractor and other vendors. This helps insure a smooth flow of information and mitigate unnecessary confusion and wasted efforts/fees.

“PrayWorks was an ideal representative for McCarthy, primarily due to Dave Pray’s deep understanding of the building design process and his passion to embrace change that benefits all the organizations he’s collaborating with.” – Ray Sedey, McCarthy Building Companies
