There are a lot of general contractors and construction companies out there — but not all are created equal. To ensure you get quality construction results, there are a few important factors you should look for.
Offering In-House Construction Services
Working with an in-house team is a great way to ensure quality results. A design-build general contractor uses an in-house team to improve internal communications so your work is completed on-time and free of errors. This in-house team includes everyone from designers and architects to craftsmen who perform tasks like masonry, excavation, steel erection, concrete work, roofing, and carpentry.
Single Point of Responsibility
There are many moving parts in a construction project. To keep everything organized and running smoothly, we recommend establishing a single point of responsibility. Working with a design-build general contractor simplifies matters by placing all responsibility for the project under a single entity. You communicate expectations and requests to the contractor, and they have the responsibility of delegating and following up. This improves communications and helps reduce your workload.
Statement of Qualifications
Reputable construction companies should have no trouble providing a statement of qualifications — a document that outlines detailed information about the company and their core competencies. Ask for this document before you begin discussing the specifics of your build. This way, you will know exactly what they can and can’t do for you. You should also look for information regarding a company’s awards and recent projects. This will give you a better idea of the type of work they’ve done. A lack of such information is a bad sign.

You can have confidence that we’ll delivery quality construction results and make your satisfaction our top priority.
