Industry Description

A residential construction company may have one employee, a person that knows all the construction skills and builds homes for sale.  The company may also have hundreds of employees… One definition of a general contractor is the person that takes responsibility for a construction project and enters into contractual agreements with companies specializing in each of the component attributes of the project. 

Another definition of a general contractor is a company that uses its own construction specialists to complete almost all of the work to be done.  So a residential construction company may be a subcontracted organization hired by the general contractor and responsible to the architect, home owner, and agencies issuing permits and performing onsite inspections.
