How to choose the contractor for your project?
This top 5 steps will help you to choose the right contractor for your projects:
One of the contributors to a project’s success is choosing the right contractor, which can be done through applying the following guidelines.
Step 1 – Having a general understanding of the project in hand including its size and requirements as this will enable you to start looking at the right type of contractors.
Step 2 – Listening to people’s recommendations, which are based on their experience either as a client or subcontractor. Such references and experiences reveal a lot about a contractor including the nature of their work and projects, level of professionalism and competence, method and quality of work, ability to prioritize clients’ requirements, and financial stability.
Step 3 – Checking online reviews and resources starting from the contractor’s website which shows the size and type of projects they worked or are working on. The website can also form a platform for finding parties with previous experience with this contractor. Online reviews are other additional tools that deliver experiences with this contractor.
Step 4 – Checking the contractor’s licenses and other legal documents including licenses of the contractor’s major subcontractors. This is to ensure that this contractor is certified to execute a specific job, and has the right network and resources to handle the work.
Step 5 – Holding meetings with the potential contractors in order to hear from them and understand the different proposed approaches to the project’s execution.
MAJOR TYPES OF CONTRACT
It is also referred to as “fixed price” contract because in this type of contracts we set a fixed price for the entire construction work. However, terms and conditions for incentives can be added to such contracts in case of early termination, and penalties in cases of delay.
Additionally, in Lump Sum contracts, the Contractor bears all risks, while the owners avoid dealing with changes in orders for unspecified work.
If you choose to go with this type of contracts, we recommend having a clear contract with a well-defined scope and detailed timetable.
this was the first Type and the rest of the contracts types to be continued.
Cost plus contract
In this type of contract, the owner has to pay all the construction costs, purchases, and other expenses of the construction process, plus the contractor’s profits that can be determined as a fixed fee or percentage. Moreover, under this contract, the owner bears most of the risk but gains more transparency in comparison with lump-sum contracts. When going for cost-plus contracts we recommend having an accurate accounting report and prefer hiring an auditor to confirm the accuracy of the claimed costs and contractor fees this was the second type and the rest of the contracts types to be continued.
Unit Price contract
This type of contract is also known as “Item Rate Contract”, and is suitable for fast-track projects with an undefined and uncertain scope. During the bidding process, contractors will present a total estimated project cost along with a unit price for each type of work. The chosen contractor is then paid by the client based on the actual quantities after execution which mitigates the risk of variation during construction. The disadvantage of such contract is that the client would not know the final project cost beforehand, and would only have an approximate budget based on contractor’s preliminary estimation of quantities.
