The general building contractor is a manager, and possibly a tradesman, employed by the client on the advice of the architect, engineer or the architectural technologist or the client him if acting as the manager. A general building contractor is responsible for the overall coordination of a project. A general contractor must first assess the project-specific documents. Depending on the project delivery method, the contractor will submit a fixed price proposal or bid, cost plus price or an estimate. The general contractor considers the cost of home office overhead, general conditions, materials and equipment as well as the cost of labor to provide the owner with a price for the project.

All home improvement under one roof. They offer their clients high quality workmanship with exceptional value for money. From turnkey residential homes to small home improvements including commercial buildings at competitive prices.

A general contractor is responsible for providing all of the material, labor, equipment  and services necessary for the construction of the project. The general contractor hires specialized subcontractors to perform all or portions of the construction work.

Whether your project is large or small. Understanding your needs combined with superior teamwork and hands on management. Your project is delivered with value and within budget...

Building construction is the process of preparing for and forming buildings and building systems. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing and continues until the structure is ready for occupancy.

Building supply house - a store where builders can purchase materials for building houses and related structures.

We pride ourselves on selling a huge range of competitively priced building supplies that are nearly always available to take away on the day.

We supply a wide range of building materials and goods at trade prices to DIY enthusiasts, the building trade, the construction industry and the general public at discounted prices including bricks, insulation, aggregates, timber and dry lining materials.


Building materials:

Building material is any material which is used for construction purposes.

Natural and artificial materials and products used for the construction and repair of buildings and structures. The many different purposes and operating conditions of buildings and structures account for the variety of demands placed on building materials and for the great diversity of available materials. Two basic categories of building materials are recognized: general-purpose materials, such as cement, concrete, and timber, used in the construction of various types of structures, and special-purpose materials, such as acoustic, insulating, and refractory materials. Depending on the degree of preparation before use, building materials are conventionally classified as building materials proper, such as binders and aggregates, and structural components, which are prefabricated units and elements to be installed in buildings at the construction site, such as reinforced-concrete panels, toilet stalls, and door and window units.

Building materials:

      Building material is any material which is used for construction purposes. Many naturally occurring substances, such as clay, rocks, sand, and wood, even twigs and leaves, have been used to construct buildings. Apart from naturally occurring materials, many man-made products are in use, some more and some less synthetic. The manufacture of building materials is an established industry in many countries and the use of these materials is typically segmented into specific specialty trades, such as carpentry, insulation, plumbing, and roofing work.

Industrialization and the expansion of modern construction have led to an increased share of prefabricated structural components in the total production volume of building materials. The greater output of building materials in the form of almost totally prefabricated items makes it possible to increase labor productivity, decrease costs, and accelerate construction work

Building construction is the process of preparing for and forming buildings and building systems. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing and continues until the structure is ready for occupancy.

Far from being a single activity, large scale construction is a feat of human multitasking. Normally, the job is managed by a project manager, and supervised by a construction manager, design engineer, construction engineer or project architect. For the successful execution of a project, effective planning is essential. Those involved with the design and execution of the infrastructure in question must consider the environmental impact of the job, the successful scheduling, budgeting, construction site safety, availability and transportation of building materials, logistics, inconvenience to the public caused by construction delays and bidding, etc.
Types of construction projects

In general, there are nine types of construction:

    Residential building construction
    Light commercial construction
    Multi-family construction
    Health-Care construction
    Environmental construction
    Industrial construction
    Commercial building construction
    Institutional construction
    Heavy civil construction

Each type of construction project requires a unique team to plan, design, construct and maintain the project.

Building construction is the process of adding structure to real property or construction of buildings. The vast majority of building construction jobs are small renovations, such as addition of a room, or renovation of a bathroom. Often, the owner of the property acts as laborer, paymaster, and design team for the entire project. However, all building construction projects include some elements in common – design, financial, estimating and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, and/or litigation. For this reason, those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome.

Building construction

Techniques and industry involved in the assembly and erection of structures. Early humans built primarily for shelter, using simple methods. Building materials came from the land, and fabrication was dictated by the limits of the materials and the builder's hands. The erection sequence involved, as now, first placing a foundation (or using the ground). The builder erected the structural system; the structural material (masonry, mud, or logs) served as both skeleton and enclosure. Traditional bearing-wall and post-and-beam systems eventually gave way to framed structures, and builders became adept at sealing and fireproofing with a variety of claddings (exterior coverings) and finishes. Steel-framed buildings are usually enclosed by curtain walls. In modern-day construction, sheathing the skeleton of the building is only the beginning; specialists then begin the bulk of the work inside, installing plumbing, electrical wiring, HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning), windows, floor coverings, plasterwork, moldings, ceramic tile, cabinets, and other features.
