With A.R. Brouwer Company as your General Contractor, our Project Managers and Superintendents work with the Owner and the design team to deliver the project on time and according to project specifications. Typically, when A.R. Brouwer Company is retained as the General Contractor, the Owner and design team have already completed pre-construction activities, and the project is ready to begin construction. 

Important Things to Know About General Contracting Services

  • The best choice for Owners who are committed to a specific architect, have a more flexible schedule and are looking for the lowest qualified bid
  • Typically requires more time from the Owner when compared to Construction Management and Design/Build services
  • The Owner has multiple contracts and points of contact for the project that must be managed simultaneously
  • The Owner is more involved with the design team throughout the pre-construction activities
  • Delayed involvement of the construction team until bidding may lead to design changes throughout the duration of the project, which can result in a longer process overall
  • May be less cost-effective compared to Construction Management and Design/Build when considering total project costs and timing
  • The A.R. Brouwer Company team will do an extensive review of drawings and project documents during the estimating phase to assess buildability, ensure scope coverage, and reduce change orders during construction

General Contracting services are a good fit for very experienced Owners who are comfortable executing all the pre-construction activities with their design team and understand the entire design and construction process. Total project costs may be higher when using General Contracting services, given the longer overall project duration.
