General Contracting

A general contractor works to provide all of the labor, material, equipment (such as tools and engineering vehicles) and services that are required for a certain project’s construction. The general contractor employs specialized subcontractors to work on all or portions of the work. The general contractor is also called a builder, building contractor or remodeling contractor. What makes a “general” contractor is that he agrees into a contract with the owner or the company in order to complete a specific project and takes full responsibility to finish the construction for the bid price. Basically, the subcontractors are responsible to the general contractor.


Choosing a company for general contracting works should be done with careful analysis. This decision will provide a huge impact on the failure or success of your construction needs.

The general contractor’s responsibilities are:

  • Estimating then bidding the project
  • Negotiating a final contract with the owner
  • Acquiring subcontractors and negotiating contracts with them
  • Acquiring the required permits and also scheduling inspections
  • Setting a payment schedule based on the progress of work
  • Disbursing money to material suppliers and subcontractors
  • Formulating a schedule for deliveries, workers, and subs
  • Interpreting to precision the plans and specifications
  • Negotiating prices of materials and ordering them
  • Coordinating and supervising the work of staff and subcontractors
  • Troubleshooting problems on the job-site

As everything on top gets accomplished by the general contractor, he also meets with the owners to address concerns while handling different things simultaneously with a tight schedule. In large construction requirements, the general contractor usually have a project manager, foreman, and lead carpenter to help oversee the daily grind on the job-site.
