Criteria for Evaluating a Building Contractor
The measurement of the building contractor's proposed solutions – and their capacity for executing them as planned.
- Does the building solution being offered fit your specific needs?
- Does it account for all relevant considerations - both in terms of the actual construction process and in terms of the facility’s long-term usefulness?
- Will the construction company's performance match their promises?
- Will they stand behind their work once it’s completed?
- Can they provide solid references?
- Do they have repeat clients?
- What do their subcontractors think of them?
These are all questions you should be asking and getting positive responses to.
