Why you should hire commercial building contractors
By: Construction DesignWorks, LLC
Why hire a builder or general contractor? Being in the commercial construction industry, most of our clients are fairly experienced and knowledgeable on the steps and processes in construction. In fact, several of our clients are professional developers and were previously in the construction trades either as a general contractor or specialty trade and familiar with the design-bid-build delivery method.
However, fewer of our clients are fully acquainted with the advantages of design-build construction. So why would semi-experienced owners need to hire commercial building contractors?
Top 3 reasons to hire commercial building contractors
Network of contacts
Almost all commercial building contractors have a vast network of contacts, subcontractors, vendors and suppliers they continually work with on a day-to-day basis. As a result, building contractors have the ability to procure services and products more efficiently.
Whether it is for construction of a new parking lot, erection of a new building, or performing a tenant finish project, project management is paramount for its success. Building contractors are more versed and experienced in the complexities of construction project management. This includes what I feel is the most important part of project management – critical path.
Owners may have average or generalized construction data. They may use RS Means or other national cost databases to derive overall construction costs. However, most of the time those average costs are inaccurate. Construction costs vary based on the regions of the country, readiness of the subcontractor and availability of products.
Commercial building contractors offer these three distinct advantages in assisting owners with their construction projects — network of resources, knowledgeable project management and lower costs. Most importantly, the owner doesn't have to coordinate the multitude of vendors, suppliers, subcontractors, architects, engineers and inspectors while overseeing the financial and safety concerns for the venture.
