What Does a Commercial General Contractor Do?

Before discussing how to select a commercial construction company, it is important to understand what they offer. A commercial general contractor works to complete commercial construction projects, as opposed to residential. They are responsible for planning the construction from beginning to end.

Determining Your Project Expectations

The first step in selecting your commercial construction company is defining your project scope and priorities. This is important so that you find one that aligns with your company’s expectations. Then, decide upon your desired budget and schedule for your project. Determining this is a vital first step before accepting bids.

Areas of Consideration When Choosing a General Contractor

Experience and Company History

Years of experience can speak volumes about a commercial construction company. A quality contractor, like VEC Inc., will have years of experience and knowledge to support your endeavor. It is also important to decide what type of contractor you want to work with. Do you want a large or smaller local construction company? Corporate or family owned? VEC, Inc. is proud to be family-owned and operated!

Client References and Portfolio

Checking references and contractor portfolios has become standard practice in the selection process. This will provide insight on client satisfaction as well as if they have experience completing commercial project types like yours.

Safety Record
