Owner's Representative

As owner’s representative, we serve as an extension of the owner’s staff. SLI provides guidance through the lifecycle of your project, protecting the owner’s interests at all times.

SLI provides owners with the value-added resources they will need to make their project a success. For an owner whose team may not have the required depth of resources to look after each component of a project, SLI literally serves as an extension of their staff.

As the project’s “eyes and ears,” we can provide pre-construction and  on-site representation to make sure that the construction proceeds in accordance with contract documents, on time and within budget. Working as your advocate, SLI experts enable clients to focus on their core business without distraction.

SLI’s staff of architects, designers, estimators, schedulers, project managers, and other construction professionals have hands-on experience and skills that are applied throughout each phase of a project. We provide clients with this technical knowledge to keep you abreast of events, enabling you to make informed and timely decisions.
