Whether you are building a home, shopping mall, school, apartment building, office complex, industrial plant, or any other commercial structure, you will need to hire a qualified general contractor for the entire project. It is the general contractor’s job to oversee the entire construction process, from the beginning to the end, as well as handle any emergencies that may arise along the way. A general contractor, either full or part-time, is responsible for day-to- day supervision of an existing construction project, managing of sales and trades staff, and communicating with all involved parties during the course of the construction project. If you are hiring a general contractor, you must also ensure that they are licensed and bonded in order to work legally in your area.Feel free to find more information at 2×4 construction.
General contractors have their own teams of subcontractors that work closely with them to make sure that everything runs smoothly while building the project. Each company will use different subcontractors to complete the overall project including building materials suppliers, electrical suppliers, masonry suppliers, plumbing suppliers, and landscaping suppliers. The general contractors will communicate with these subcontractors on a daily basis to make sure that each sub-contractor follows strict codes of conduct in their respective fields. These codes will ensure that these subcontractors are following the proper methods and procedures, which in turn ensures that the general contractor is properly protecting the integrity of the construction project. Contractors that are not following the proper codes of conduct will be held responsible for any damages that occur during the construction process, which may include property damage, injuries to employees and contractors, as well as fines and penalties.
General contractors must also perform routine inspections of the facility to make sure that everything is being constructed correctly. This type of inspection can take the form of an annual maintenance inspection, which can be performed by a subcontractor of the general contractor if you do not want to perform the entire job yourself. Contractors that are licensed by the local building authority are required to perform inspections on a regular basis. While these inspections do not take place immediately after construction begins, the general contractor has to review them before the completion date, as a part of the project management. Contractors should ensure that they have a copy of the report at all times so that they are aware of any changes or problems that need to be fixed before they start work on the job. Contractors should also be able to provide written statements to the general public that detail all problems found during the inspection, as well as the actions that need to be taken to resolve any problems that problem.
