Building Contractor: What He Does Can Be Crucial for Construction
When you’re constructing or building a house, the first thing anyone asks will be about the contractor. Before you start the process of finding one; it’s helpful to know exactly what a contractor does. Here are some of the main tasks of a contractor:
Like the name suggests, a contractor is responsible for finding, soliciting bids from and scheduling all the subcontractors that are required for the entire project. A subcontractor will come and go when their job is done, but the contractor will see the entire project through till the end. This ensures that you have one main point-of-contact and he/she deals with everyone else.
The contractor obtains the necessary permits, is up to date on the latest codes and laws and sees that the entire project (including the design) complies with all the necessary building codes.
The contractor has to carefully schedule the different work (ordering materials, delivery, preparing the site, framing, start of electrical and plumbing, etc.) so that there’s no delay in one step which causes a delay in everything else.
Contractors are also required during remodelling and renovations. Again, they get the right team for the job, plan, schedule, coordinate and see that the project is completed on time and within budget.

The contractor coordinates with designers, architects and engineers to develop a plan. He/She is the connection between you and various other stakeholders involved. The contractor will be your eyes and ears throughout the project and will keep you updated on the progress.
