General Contracting Services
The general contractor is a manager, employed by the client or owner’s representative. A general contractor is responsible for the overall coordination of a project. A general contractor must first assess the project-specific documents which are provided by the project architect or project owner (referred to as bid, proposal or tender documents). In the case of renovations, a site visit is required to get a better understanding of the project. The general contractor considers the cost of home office overhead, general conditions, materials and equipment as well as the cost of labor to provide the owner with a price for the project. Project cost would be determined by either hard bidding or on a negotiated basis.
