What Does a Commercial Contractor Actually Do?

A commercial contractor is responsible for overseeing the estimating, planning, managing, and construction of a commercial project, which can include anything from school remodels and new restaurant constructions to office buildings and more.

The primary job of a commercial contractor is to supervise and coordinate the activities of all workers on the job site, including subcontractors. This includes ensuring that everyone is adhering to local building codes and regulations, as well as updating clients with progress reports on how their projects are progressing.

Examples of commercial buildings include: 

  • Office buildings
  • Shopping malls
  • Retail stores
  • Hospitals
  • Restaurants
  • Grocery Stores
  • Institutions (such as schools)
  • Hotels and resorts

Commercial contractors may also work on renovation or remodeling projects for commercial buildings.
