General Contractors (GC)

 “A project without a critical path is like a ship without a rudder.” 

– D. Meyer

General contracting is a tough business in a competitive market - profit margins are low, yet the GC is at risk if the project is not delivered on time or within budget. Adding to this, a GC works with several subcontractors and a failure by any one of them could impact the entire project.

For success as a GC, it’s essential that the project has a reliable CPM schedule in place, and that all subcontractors know the current plan. With the limited resources that GC’s work with, it's completely necessary for everyone, including sub-contractors, to work on the right task at the right time.
