July 16, 2023

Weston Company was GC for Ruby Nails When selecting a general contractor (GC) for a unique commercial buildout office and retail space, it is important to consider the following factors:
  1. Experience: Look for a GC with experience in building commercial spaces, especially those that are unique and require specialized knowledge and skills. Ask for references and case studies of similar projects to assess the GC’s ability to handle complex projects.
  2. Design skills: A GC with a strong design background can help you envision the finished space and bring your vision to life. Look for a GC who can work closely with architects, designers, and other stakeholders to ensure that the final design meets your requirements.
  3. Project management skills: A good GC should have strong project management skills and be able to coordinate the various tasks and trades involved in the project. They should also have a clear understanding of the timeline and budget and be able to effectively manage any changes that may arise.
  4. Communication skills: Good communication is key to a successful project. Look for a GC who is responsive, proactive, and transparent in their communication and who is able to keep you informed of progress and any issues that arise.
  5. Budget management: A good GC should be able to effectively manage the project budget and ensure that the project is completed within the budget constraints. They should also be able to identify and manage any cost overruns and provide you with regular reports on the financial status of the project.
  6. Subcontractor management: A GC should have a good network of subcontractors and suppliers who they have worked with before and who they trust to deliver high-quality work. They should also be able to effectively manage these subcontractors and ensure that they are working in a safe and efficient manner.
