The general contractor of a construction takes on a lot of responsibilities, including the daily operations and oversight, the management of suppliers and equipment, and the channels of communication between employees, sub-contractors, developer, and client. The expertise of a general contractor is implemented before, during, and after the project in question, as he or she is responsible for the assessment and planning involved before the project is put into motion, as well the actual construction and resulting quality. There are also various civil, financial, and political aspects involved in the industry that are often overseen by the general contractor.
Because of the basic oversight attributed to the general contractor, he or she may be involved in a legal matter regarding the construction project. Issues involving quality, building inspections, workers compensation, construction safety, building costs, the use of equipment, general and premises liability, construction defects or damages, foundations, claims, building codes and compliance, leases, construction delays, waterproofing, contracts, and construction accidents could fall on the responsibility of a general contractor.
