When it comes to hiring a general contractor, you might be experienced, or this might be something you’ve never done before. Perhaps you’re taking advantage of the COVID-19 closures and using this time to renovate your commercial building or maybe you see the upswing coming with businesses beginning to reopen, and you’re ready to take the plunge and start your commercial business from scratch. In that case, you need a commercial building space!
What Does a General Contractor Do?
A general contractor is the grease and guidance to make sure that your commercial building process goes smoothly. You want to be sure that your general contractor is licensed to oversee your commercial building process from start to finish. A solid general contractor will have licensing to meet the city’s requirements as well as any specialty work licensing requirements such as electrical, plumbing, or any number of other areas.
In your commercial building process, a good general contractor will also provide proof of liability insurance to make sure that your commercial building project is covered in the event of damages.
When you create a contract for your commercial building process, a general contractor should be willing to include a detailed description of the scope of work on your commercial building project and to include the timeline and a detailed description of the materials, labor, site management, and cleanup, and any permits required for the commercial building.
Your general contractor should also include an assessment of fees and a payment schedule for your commercial building process. This will help to ensure that both parties feel secure in the contract for the timely completion of the commercial building and any deliveries of materials and payments for labor services.
