Buildings have an impact on the
environment throughout their life cycles. They use water, raw materials, and
energy, all resources that need to be conserved. From the construction

The pre-construction phase of your project is an important phase that’s often overlooked. Why is it important, and what’s involved? Do I need pre-construction services? Let’s talk about it!
Not all projects are going to require pre-construction services, but they can be invaluable for complex and complicated commercial construction projects. Getting a general contractor involved early on in the process to work with the architect and engineers can help achieve a better overall project.

Knowing the roles of each member of your construction team is important. When you are interviewing general contractors for your project, make sure you know who will be part of your team.
