Understanding a General Contractor’s Role
A successful build—one that delivers professional craftsmanship on time and on budget—requires that many tasks and personnel work in sync. Your general contracting service is responsible for dealing with any sub-contractors who are involved with the job. Basically, it is the general contractors’ responsibility to lead all aspects of a residential or commercial build, from the blueprint stage until the project’s turnover.
It all starts with an idea. Often the owner or client has a specific vision for what type of building they wish to achieve and what purpose the building will serve. At this point, they may choose to begin working with an architect to draw up plans for their project. This is usually where a general contracting service is brought in. Professional general contractors collaborate with the commissioned architect and assist in figuring out the building’s logistics. Once the blueprints are drawn up, the general contractor proposes an approximate estimate and time schedule for the project.
A general contractor then assists with putting together a team of construction craftsmen to complete the actual build. They begin by seeking out quotes from qualified and reputable sub tradespeople required for the job. Once the entire crew has been selected, the general contractor then becomes responsible for maintaining communication between the sub-contractors and the rest of the construction team. This process involves planning and arranging the scheduling so that the project stays on track.
The general contractor is also responsible for managing the day-to-day construction process and assuring that everyone is following the original blueprints without compromising on-site job safety. If any issues arise, the general contractor will identify a solution and solve the problem.
A general contractor is essential if you want your next residential or commercial building project to proceed smoothly. Since a general contractor oversees so many aspects of a project, this role is usually handled by experienced professionals. When you work with a reputable contracting service, you can expect that your undertaking will be well-organized and managed effectively, which in turn guarantees a relatively stress-free build with satisfactory results.
