What does a general contractor do?

Serving as a direct extension to an owner, a general contractor is a “jack of all trades” that coordinates and oversees the work required to complete a construction project, from initial conception to completion and beyond. Responsibilities of a general contractor include hiring subcontractors, directing worksites, securing vendors, materials, and equipment, and managing budget, timelines, and on-site safety.
