What is a contractor?
A general contractor is a manager and possibly an actual worker that is employed by the client (you) to assistant as an architect, engineer or the client. A general contractor is responsible for the overall coordination of a project, but must first assess the project-specific documents (referred to as bid, proposal or tender documents). When dealing with renovations or home services, a site visit is often required to get a better understanding of the project. Depending on method behind the delivery of the project, the contractor will submit a fixed price proposal or bid, cost plus price or an estimate. It is the contractor’s job to consider the cost of home office overhead, general conditions, materials, and equipment as well as the cost of labor to provide the owner with a price for the project.
Contract documents include drawings, project manual, an addendum or modifications issued prior to proposal/ bidding ad prepared by a design professional such as an architect. The general contractor may be the construction manager or construction manager.
