Finding the Right Ottawa Commercial General Contractor

When it is time to remodel your Ottawa office, retail space, or general commercial space needs (or if you are going to build a new commercial building or add on to an existing one), who can you count on in Ottawa for quality general contractor services? And what should be on your list of “must haves” for an Ottawa commercial general contractor?

of course you should seek referrals from colleagues – but don’t take that as good enough because your needs for an Ottawa commercial general contractor may be very different from what your friend/.colleague’s were.

You would be wise to “shop” for the best/fairest price.  Note we are not saying the lowest price as often the lowest price can mean shoddy service or hidden fees. Cost will be product of the materials that the Ottawa commercial general contractor puts into your project as well as the quality of workers he puts on your project.  Do your due diligence and try to uncover what the quotes fluctuate.

Look for references and building you can visit that the prospective Ottawa commercial general contractors have overseen. When talking to references about perspective Ottawa commercial general contractors, be sure to find out whether they delivered on time and on budget.

Make a short list of Ottawa commercial general contractors and go in depth.  You should quickly uncover who you feel comfortable with for your respective project. Ask clarifying questions about the quote and whether they see any additional costs that could occur. It is not uncommon for large scale building costs to go over budget by 10 per cent, but any more than this is cause for alarm.

It is also important to make sure that the Ottawa commercial general contractor has extensive knowledge about rules, regulations, and building codes as they vary significantly.

Choosing a good Ottawa commercial general contractor is not hard, but there are a lot of commercial construction companies to choose from, so be wary of the ones which offer exceedingly low prices.
