How can we make sure we’re getting a reputable builder?

Check the architect, design-builder and general contractor’s references.  It is important to ask the following questions:

  • What are the limits of your professional liability coverage (covers design liability issues)?
  • What are the limits of your all-risk insurance (covers the building while under construction)?
  • What is your safety record?  Have them provide references of projects they have completed in the last three years of comparable size/scope.
  • What are your bonding limits and can you bond the job?  Obtain the bonding agent as a reference.
  • Is the surety company AAA rated?
  • Have you ever defaulted on a contract or bond?
  • Can you provide resumes on the design personnel, field superintendents, and project managers that will be working on this project?

Turn your next project into a reality.
