GENERAL CONTRACTOR VS CONSTRUCTION MANAGER

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GENERAL CONTRACTOR AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGER?

apartment_building_under_constructionYou may sometimes wonder: What is a general contractor? A general contractor company is a business that employs several people in the office and others, carpenters, excavators, etc., who work in the field. The general contractor is the foundation of the operation, so to speak. He is involved in going out to bid on a project and overseeing the entire scope of the project, bringing in suppliers, subcontractors and skilled craftsmen to perform the necessary work. The general contractor is usually the first – and main – point of contact.

The construction manager is the entity responsible for almost all phases of construction program management, including bid solicitation, job management, and accounting. He works directly with subcontractors and suppliers, overseeing their work throughout the construction process while devising ways to add value and maximize cost savings in the construction management plan. A construction manager is generally present on the site of high-end construction projects, in which his presence is often crucial to the overall outcome of the project.
