GENERAL CONTRACTOR

A general contractor is responsible for the overall coordination and successful completion of a project. On occasion, clients ask us to perform the role of general contractor when multiple service providers will be working on their project at the same time. It is most appropriate when completing large projects such as:

  • Interior renovation projects including lighting, flooring, and other updates in addition to our various painting services
  • Exterior building envelope renewal projects with subcontractors including scaffolding, roofing, or other renewals requiring cooperation and scheduling

As general contractor, we can manage, coordinate, and communicate the vast number of details on the project to ensure it gets completed on time and on budget.
