Differences Between a Project Manager and a General Contractor

Frank Benaderet delivers a high professional standard of project management support as president of GreenQuest Builders, a company operating in the San Francisco Bay Area construction marketplace. For more information about Frank Benaderet's company, its business approach, and its project management offerings, please visit beginning a construction project, professionals have options as to how they wish to manage construction. One option involves hiring a general contractor who will take responsibility for all phases of the project, including materials procurement and the work itself. Oftentimes, general contractors bring with them a markup on prices for materials and sub-contracting services as high as 20 percent. Project managers, on the other hand, furnish many of the same services as general contractors without involving themselves in the hands-on process of construction. They support their clients by ordering materials, tracking down reliable subcontractors, and providing oversight of the team throughout the duration of the project. Project managers usually require less commitment in terms of cost from their customers.
