If you’re having a house built, you need a company with knowledge of architectural design, building codes, zoning requirements and varied construction elements. That’s where a residential general contractor comes in.
A commercial general contractor oversees the construction of commercial entities, like malls, retail stores, hospitals, educational buildings, and more. Any commercial building project needs a general contractor to manage it.
Most general contractors own their own companies and have experience in the construction industry. They employ experienced and training individuals that are assigned to various types of construction projects.

Commercial construction is a general term for construction projects for any buildings intended strictly for commercial use.
These include apartments, townhouses, condominiums, and other buildings that house more than one family.
Renovating historic buildings requires special processes and compliance with applicable codes for preservation.
Tenant Improvement Construction
Tenant Improvements involve alterations to commercial space as part of a lease agreement, in order to configure the space for the needs of that particular tenant. These include changes to walls, floors, ceilings, and lighting, among others.
Green Building Construction
Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's lifecycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
