Occasionally the entity commissioning the construction of the building (owner) chooses to act as the general contractor. In such cases, they will need to work directly with the subcontractors and take care of the administration and organization of the various subcontractors.
Under these conditions the owner takes on all liability for proper sequencing of the work, and dealing with the realities of construction.
Owners considering this approach should keep in mind that Pointmark makes a living working with subcontractors. As such, we have established relationships that will outlast one construction project, and the subcontractors acknowledge this with their cooperation. Owners seldom have this advantage, and most subcontractors will recognize the risk of working with a one-time client with higher bids.
As an alternative, Pointmark Construction takes on the general contractor role, by competitively bidding each trade, working with trusted subcontractors, skillfully scheduling their involvement based on tried and true experience. Working hand-in-hand with designers and subcontractors, Pointmark is responsible for completing projects on time and under budget.
