“General contractor” is a term that isn’t always clearly defined for the typical homeowner. To some people, it means someone who does construction. To others, it means someone who does home design. While both of these definitions are pretty close, it helps to provide a bigger picture of someone who specializes in general contracting in Studio City.
A general contractor is in charge of overseeing the day-to-day tasks involved on a construction site. This can include managing vendors and trades, communicating information to the parties involved and directing the actions of a team of workers.
The general contractor is hired by the client. It’s his or her job to first assess the project and all of the specific documents that are involved with the property (also called tender documents). Typically a visit to the site is one of the first tasks a general contractor will do. If renovations are involved, instead of building a new project, it’s important that the general contracting team sees what they’re dealing with first. If it’s just kitchen or bathroom remodeling, then this part will be pretty quick. If it’s whole home remodeling, the general contractor will take his time and go over the house in question very carefully, noting every last detail.
Then it’s time to estimate a price. In a city as expansive and diverse as Studio City, this can be a pretty big range. This price usually takes into account the cost of the materials and equipment needed and the cost of labor. If the general contractor decides to take on the project, a contract is drawn up that includes a budget, any specific conditions and the blueprints when it’s a design/build firm.
The general contractor is held responsible for providing all of the necessary material, equipment, labor and services to undertake the construction of the project. He is also held accountable for a range of other responsibilities as well. These can include getting the application for a building permit, making sure the property is secure and safe during construction, providing temporary bathroom facilities on site, managing the personnel and disposing of all the waste involved.
Overall, the general contractor has a lot of responsibilities. But a good one, like Roger Perron, has experience in the process and knows exactly how to take care of everything smoothly and efficiently, costing the customer as little as possible.
