When a builder is hired as a general contractor, it means the owner hands over the project plans and the budget—and then the builder is responsible for the means and methods used to execute the construction within the project's established parameters.
This delivery method requires no preconstruction collaboration on our part—which must mean we're not as invested in the project and, therefore, might not perform as well. Right?
We give every project the same time and attention to ensure high-quality construction for the best value, because we want every owner to be completely satisfied. We don't shy away from everything we’re contracted to deliver—nor are we interested in taking advantage of the change order process to do so. We've spent nearly 90 years finding innovative ways to competitively deliver the best projects for our clients regardless of when we enter the picture... that's the upside of hiring a firm as client-focused as we are.
There's nothing "general" about the Jacobsen approach to a project: You pay for a specific vision, and we pay specific attention to ensure that your vision is realized. It's as simple as that.
