This includes providing all labor, trades, equipment, materials, security, management etc. During preconstruction stage the GC works closely with the client to understand the project needs and their expectations. The GC then works with the architect to create construction documents which might include: investigating design solutions, drafting specifications, schedules, estimates etc.

During the construction phase the General Contractor manages all on-site activities through their project management team. These on site requirements  include: employing specialty trades, coordinating contractors, monitoring schedules, managing lead times for specialty products, inspecting work quality, facilitating design changes, managing financial payments, organizing permits inspections etc. managing site security/ access managing safety assembling warranty information etc.

At a minimum a general contractor will appoint a full time Superintendent and a Project Manager. Their role includes managing all day-to-day activities including: answering questions from sub-contractors, enforcing safe work practices,  ensuring contractors confirm to the construction documents, managing conflicts, providing access platforms, inspecting work quality, managing change orders, ordering materials, providing a paper record of all activities, reporting any problems to the design team etc.
