General Contracting

General Contracting

A widely used construction delivery method in which the owner receives low prices and maximum bidder competition. The owner contracts separately with both the architect and general contractor and acts as the controlling party. This traditional method drives the lowest prices in competitive bidding and provides defined roles and responsibilities for the team. However, it is the least collaborative and transparent of the delivery methods and can lead to an adversarial relationship between the parties, especially in public sector construction.
