4 Resources to Help You Find a General Contractor

hiring a general contractor for building construction

Construction spending and demand continue to rise and show no signs of stopping, which is both good news and bad news for anyone looking to begin a construction project. On the one hand, there are plenty of general contractors out there and plenty of information about any given firm or contractor. On the other, it can be tricky to find a general contractor who fits your needs, budget, and timeline. Even though it can be tough to know where to turn, there are plenty of resources to help you find the best match. Let’s take a look at some of them now.

Referrals

Asking for referrals from friends, acquaintances, and even folks online can give you an idea of some names or firms that have performed well in the past. A good word from someone you trust is probably the most useful resource when you’re on the hunt for someone to do a big job, but even then, you should do a little more homework.

Give Yourself Enough Time for a Project Before the Holidays

The holiday season is quickly approaching AGAIN, and it’s time to start thinking about that project you need to have done (or at least mostly done) before the holidays hit. We see it all too often where a company fully plans to have a project done by the holidays, but then things come to a halt at a critical stage because it’s time for vacations and/or family time.

Don’t Cause Undue Stress

If you know you need to make significant headway on or finish a project by the new year, start early! Don’t be that person holding up your companies project when deadlines need to be met or approvals and bids are needed while you are away for the holidays. Get it done in the months leading up to the holidays so that you can rest assured it’s being finished and you can off into the sunset without the stress.

Incorporate UCD into your next Design Build Project

The easiest time to implement a new lighting solution for your business is during the construction process. If you are building a new location, it makes sense to implement the most state of the art equipment into your new facility. We don’t all have the luxury of being able to do this, however, it is by far the best solution if you are about to begin the construction process.

UCD lighting is a low energy, high output lighting solution that generates up to 20,000 hours of lighting before needing to be replaced. This is almost double the lifespan of the closest competitor. Another benefit is the vastly superior quality of light emitted by UCD lighting. It has the highest color rendering of any commercially available lighting solution and instantly turns out without the need to warm up.
