What is a General Contractor?
Basically, a general contractor is the licensed professional who manages the details of homebuilding and home improvement projects. The general contractor ensures that the job is completed correctly and on schedule.
A general contractor oversees the entire construction process, coordinating all aspects of the project and facilitating the daily tasks. The homebuilder or architect who designs your home employs the general contractor shortly before the actual building begins.
What Are the General Contractor’s Responsibilities?
The builder, architect and general contractor work together to develop and review plans, documents and permits, making sure that everything is in order before the work begins. The ONE Group maintains a strong relationship with our clients throughout the entire process, even managing the overall construction process, but the general contractor guides the construction details smoothly from start to finish. And when it comes to fine homebuilding, a good outcome rests on the details.
The general contractor obtains all the material, labor and equipment required for construction. The contractor hires specialized subcontractors to complete all or various portions of the work, such as electrical, plumbing and carpentry, and should be on-site often to check on the progress and resolve any issues that may arise. In addition, the general contractor arranges for the necessary inspections.
