A general contractor is an organization or individual that contracts with another organization or individual (the owner) for the construction of a building, road or other facility. A general contractor is defined as such if it is the signatory as the builder of the prime construction contract for the project. A general contractor is responsible for the means and methods to be used in the construction of the project in accordance with the contract documents. Said contract documents usually include the contract agreement including budget, the general and special conditions and the plans and specification of the project that are prepared by a design professional. A general contractor usually is responsible for the supplying of all material, labor equipment and services necessary for the construction of the project. To do this it is common for the general contractor to subcontract part of the work to other persons and companies that specialize in these types of work. These are called subcontractors.

General contractors conducting work for government agencies are typically referred to as prime contractors. The responsibilities of a prime contractors working under a contract are essentially identical to those outline above. In many cases, prime contractors will delegate portions of the contract work to subcontractors.


As a service

There are many services available to the business and private sectors. Usually, when an entity wishes to have a building constructed, they are first put in touch with a general contractor. In many cases, the entity commissioning the construction never deals directly with the subcontractors.

As an owner

Many times the entity commissioning the construction of the building chooses to act as the general contractor. In such cases, they work directly with the subcontractors and take care of the administration and organization of the various subcontractors.

General contractor example

In Atlanta, for example, a real estate developer (someone who has relationships with banks and sources of real estate for community development) would select a plot of land and then hire a general contractor to actually build the buildings. The developer and general contractor work closely together to meet deadlines and budget. The general contractor then works with subcontractors to ensure quality standards in addition to timeline and budget.
