Diverse owner’s representation for effective construction projects.


Representing Owners with Skill, Wisdom, and Experience

As our clients’ trusted partner, Otak offers deep expertise, counsel, and creativity to realize your vision within budget and on time. At Otak, your vision becomes our mission.

What is an Owner’s Representative?

Every owner has unique needs, so owner’s representatives must be highly flexible. An owner’s representative provides a range of essential services throughout all stages of a project, working alongside owners to understand their needs. To ensure that complex goals are easily met, an owner’s representative augments staff and is attuned to details crucial for driving projects and making critical decisions for the owner. Our talent relies on softer skills which help guide our clients to what they need. Then, we deliver those needs.


Educators are best at educating, and construction projects can compete with that vital service, yet they are necessary for the health, safety, and well-being of students and teachers. Building improvements are significant undertakings demanding considerable stakeholder engagement, oversight, and resources, and Otak is here to help. Whether planning to renovate facilities or frugally replace aging infrastructure, our expert team handles the complexities of your project.


Healthcare is at the heart of our communities, and Otak’s trusted project management team knows how to work alongside our healthcare partners in the development of spaces that heal body, mind, and spirit. Whether planning large hospital replacements or improving retail medical clinics, our experts guide you through the planning, design, and construction to ensue your project’s logistic and fiscal success without distracting essential medical professionals.

Otak helps municipalities and public agencies tackle their most complex community investments by focusing on comprehensive budgeting, bond and funding stream management, scheduling, risk assessments, energy incentives, seismic rehabilitation, historic renovation, greenfield development and land entitlements, and change management.
