Wantony Florian_Case Study 2

The owner wants to save money for the project he/she wants to do by not hiring a GC, what are the pros and the cons, what risk has the owner assumed by making this decision?

  • One of the problem that may happen if the owner wants to save money by not hiring a General Contract would be that the owner does not have the same experience that the GC. For example; a GC responsibilities include setting deadlines and budgets; coordinating with sub-contractor, including electrician, plumbers and in some of the cases interior designers; managing employees, obtaining appropriate building materials and services necessary for the construction. The owner doesn’t not have that kind of experiences and it would create a really bad situation by choosing the wrong materials/ high prices and, not doing the work efficiently.
