Every construction company and every contractor completing commercial construction has to have a first job. While some commercial building contractors are literally starting out in a new organization, other Wisconsin construction companies are developed by already experienced contractors working together and pooling their experience.
Either option can be the start of a very reputable construction company. However, as the developer, looking for commercial building contractors with years of experience in working with their subcontractors, working to deadlines and effectively managing large projects should be a primary consideration.
The Role of the General Contractor
Depending on the structure of the construction company, the general contractor for a commercial building project is really the project manager. This company may provide their own crews for specific aspects of the construction, drawing for already vetted subcontractors to fill in the construction needs.
The role of the general contractor on large jobs may go well beyond this basic experience. These companies can be responsible for sourcing materials, expediting permits, life-cycle costing for the building as well as engineering and risk assessment.
These commercial building contractors, in addition to managing all aspects of the construction phase, may also offer security to the construction site, manage accounting of the project and also ensure full compliance with all regulations and safety standards during the building.
After the construction is finished, these Wisconsin contractors may complete all aspects of wrapping up the project. This can include ensuring all final inspections are completed and reported, completing owner training and even providing all necessary drawings, documents, and manuals as requested by the owners.
The level of experience that the contractors bring to the project will determine the range of services they are able to provide. This can be a significant benefit to the building owner, eliminating the need for multiple service providers over the scope of the construction.
