How to choose your general contractor?

Before launching a construction project, it is a good idea to think about how to choose the right general contractor and the criteria you should take into account when making your decision. Every client’s hierarchy of needs and requirements is different. Below are our tips which you are certain to find useful.

Tips for clients, or what to keep in mind?

Even if the general contractor you are considering has been recommended to you, it is a good idea to do some online research first. Take a look at their web site and social media profiles and look at the comments and opinions of previous clients.
You can watch promotional videos and film footage from previous projects. We recommend that you meet with a representative at their office to see how the company normally operates. It is also a good idea to ask for a live tour of already completed buildings, which allows you to verify their quality and attention to detail. You may also want to have a chat with the buildings’ owners, who are sure to provide you with useful information regarding the construction process.

Things to remember before choosing a contractor

Find out whether they have any certificates or awards which indicate that they have been recognised by other industry professionals. In addition, make sure that the contractor has the necessary experience and that the team is highly dedicated. Find out whether the contractor has its own managers,
engineers, construction teams, or design teams.
If so, then you can be certain that all of them will agree to work on your project. This ensures that your building will be constructed entirely by people who have experience working together.

Also worth noting

Learn about the contractor’s previous projects and the solutions utilised. The uniqueness and innovative nature of these solutions is a testament to the knowledge and experience of the contractor. In addition, you should find out which technologies (energy saving, low-emission) have been used for a given purpose, as well as the exterior and interior of the building. Be sure that you know the scope of responsibilities assumed by the contractor so that you have the peace of mind you need. A good contractor takes care of all the necessary permits and formalities, as well as providing a comprehensive maintenance service after the construction process is complete.
