Commercial general contractors play a pivotal in determining the outcome of commercial construction projects in Delaware and across the nation. The best contractors work on projects from the conception stage all the way to getting approved for the completion of a project by a local government. This means a highly-rated commercial general contractor such as D&B Construction is involved in the design and construction of a structure, as well as meeting every building code standard.
Versatile general contractors like us successfully complete projects for a wide variety of commercial spaces.
We design and build the following types of commercial spaces in Delaware:
Business owners and property managers in Delaware have to work closely with a general contractor to ensure the successful completion of a commercial project. If you are looking to start from scratch by constructing a new building or you want to refurbish the current space where you operate, you should consider several factors before choosing a commercial general contractor.
You should never hire a general contractor without first getting an idea about the contractor’s communication skills. Does a representative from the contractor return emails and phone calls promptly? This is an important factor because many construction projects require adapting to rapid changes that must be communicated in real time. Getting voicemail or waiting for a reply to an email does not cut it for the best general contractors.
If you had to select the professional that has to do the most multi-tasking, you would be hard pressed to come up with a profession other than a commercial general contractor. Commercial construction projects involve meeting tight deadlines, while adhering to numerous urgent project requests. General contractors must devise detailed contracts that describe every step of the construction project, from ordering materials to staying within the project budget. During the first meeting with a prospective contractor, ask how the contractor organizes a complex commercial construction project.
Reading client reviews of a contractor can give you an idea about their performance. You should be able to discover a pattern of the good things a contractor does for its clients. Google reviews are a good place to start, but you should pay more attention to a contractor’s Better Business Bureau (BBB) page. The BBB assigns a rating to every business listed on its website. You want to consider contractors that have earned the highest rating of A+ from the BBB. Receiving accreditation from the BBB is important as well.
Outstanding Testimonials from Clients
Businesses across all industries upload testimonials from clients and customers to their websites. Yes, the testimonials are strictly positive, but they can still provide you with insight into what makes a commercial general contractor successful in completing projects. Not only are you looking for detailed positive feedback, but you want the feedback to come from years of providing construction services.
Before you meet with a contractor, check with the Delaware Department of Revenue website to determine whether the contractor has obtained a commercial general contractors license. After verifying a license and learning about certifications, you can schedule a free project evaluation that helps you make one of the most important business decisions you can ever expect to make.
