What to Consider When Seeking a Commercial General Contractor

Choosing the right commercial contractor is an important decision for the future and growth of your business. No matter what your business is, taking time to consider your options and to learn about a commercial contractor is extremely beneficial. Here are a couple of things to consider before selecting a commercial contractor.


It might not be the safest choice to pick the first commercial general contractor that you find through a quick google search. Be sure to review their background and past ventures on their website. Also, ask your family, friends, and professional colleagues if they have worked with any commercial general contractors they can suggest to you. To help build a list of candidates, you could also use online ratings.

Review each contractor’s website before contracting a commercial general contractor to have a feel for the kind of work they offer. Other valuable material, including qualifications and certificates that the business has received, is also provided on the contractor websites. Some pages have a reference list, providing you a helpful list of contacts you can contact to help you find out how your job is going to suit a specific contractor.

One of the most important things to consider before hiring a commercial contractor is how much experience a company has in your industry. A contractor’s work and length of time in the business will help you decide if they’ll be the right fit for your project.

For reference, you can look into past projects, client testimonials, and reviews to answer these questions and answer these questions about the commercial contractor:

        – Did they do a good job?

        – Are the clients happy?

        – Does the commercial contractor provide referrals or testimonials?

        – What does a typical project look like for them?

The answers to these questions will help guide you in choosing the perfect commercial contractor that fits your company’s needs. RCS Construction has almost three decades of successful construction projects as nationally renowned general contractors and experts in design and planning. Longevity in the field gives us the experience to correctly interpret your ideas and to successfully fulfill your vision.

Great Communication

Good communication is key, especially when it comes to hiring a commercial contractor. Steady, efficient, and informative communication from the commercial contractor will ensure your project gets done right on time and within your budget. Figure out who your main point of contact is before signing with a company. This gives you a dedicated person to contact in case you have any questions. Also, make sure they are flexible enough to meet your communication needs. Does your main point of contact respond in a timely manner or does it take days or even weeks to hear back from them? Getting the responses you need in a timely manner is crucial to the success of your project.


If you’re on a very tight schedule, when choosing a commercial contractor, don’t let pricing be the biggest determining factor. If you are worried about contracting a general contractor and their cost is considerably below the market rate, inadequate materials and careless design practices will be implemented in your commercial project. Alternatively, concentrate on recruiting a construction contractor that can fulfill the deadlines while still ensuring the consistency needed by the project.
