Our General Contracting Services
General contracting is the traditional method of a project delivery. The owner’s responsibilities for the design are directly with the architect and engineers. A general contractor is then selected via competitive bidding and/or negotiation to perform all work as per the plans and specifications provided. This method is often used as it gives the owner specific control over the design and provides for an equal competitive bidding process.

Our GC strategy and approach
Being the common element and center of communications between all involved parties, Arki Construction assures a smooth and expeditious progress of construction by providing a decision-making team player on every job. Our clients, their architect and engineers, will be in contact with a competent representative that remains on a project until its turn over and beyond. A key element to push a project is the schedule. We at Arki Construction will establish a complete schedule, not only with all trades activities, but with milestones, long-lead items procurement, shop drawings/submittal review and inspections. We will live by the schedule and even give incentives to all suppliers, subcontractors and vendors to beat it. Another approach of ours for a successful project is preemptive actions. Our focus is much ahead of any given day’s activities. We work with all our subcontractor as one unified force with one objective at a time. The integrity and loyalty we have towards our clients set us apart from the competition. Our job is not necessarily completed upon obtaining a certificate of occupancy, it is finished once occupied by a satisfied client. We look forward to serve you next.
