What does a general contractor do?
General contractors are usually selected by a client after a project’s bidding process is completed. A general contractor is usually not involved in any pre-construction design or planning, so it may be necessary for contractors to work with project architects or engineers during the course of construction to overcome any unforeseen obstacles.
How will a general contracting services benefit my building project?
A GC is your primary point of contact for day to day operation of your job site. Use of a general contractor alleviates the need for the client or owner to coordinate and manage a project’s subcontractors. A general contractor oversees the necessary subcontractors for a project and assumes responsibility for those subcontractors’ licensing, insurance, and workers’ compensation.
What is a general contractor responsible for?
- Project bids based on scope of proposed work
- Communication with project architect, engineer or construction manager
- Contact and management of all suppliers and vendors
- Hiring and management of all necessary subcontractors
- Ensuring safety on the job site
- Ensuring all work is completed correctly and on-time
