When You Should Get into Contact with Your General Contractor

Instances when you should reach out to your general contractor.

While you have undoubtedly hired a trustworthy and reliable Pleasanton contractor to handle your next commercial construction project, it’s natural to want to be included in the building process.  Sometimes, you just need clarification or assistance with an aspect of the project.  To ensure that you are getting all the help and clarity that you need, here are some of the instances when you should reach out to your general contractor for help.

Before You Select a Project Site

Oftentimes, clients do not call in their contractor until after they have selected a building site.  However, you should loop your contractor in earlier in the process.  This way your general contractor can discuss the pros and cons with you and evaluate the overall building potential of the site.  Additionally, when you bring your contractor to examine a project site with you, they can identify areas where you can save money, point out structural concerns, and even give you an estimated budget and timeline for the project.

When You Need Maintenance on Your Completed Project

Most clients assume that their relationship with their contractor ends when construction is completed.  However, some contractors are now offering their clients the opportunity to work with them as facility maintenance providers.  This is extremely convenient because the contractor who completed your project obviously knows your facility better than anyone else.  Additionally, contractors have the expertise to identify major problems disguised as minor issues and can take the necessary steps to mitigate these problems early on.  This is why you should speak to your general contractor after your construction project is completed and ask if they offer facility management services.

These are some of the instances in which you should contact your Pleasanton contractor.  Are you looking for the right general contractor to take care of your commercial construction needs?  If so, then contact the experts at Proforma Construction.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.
