General contracting is a comprehensive construction service that involves overseeing and managing all aspects of a construction project, from planning and budgeting to construction and completion.

While both construction management and general contracting involve overseeing construction projects, the key difference lies in their roles. Construction managers typically work with the client from project inception, providing advice and overseeing the project on their behalf. General contractors, on the other hand, are responsible for executing the construction work directly.

GC stands for General Contractor. A General Contractor is a professional responsible for managing all aspects of a construction project, including hiring subcontractors, obtaining permits, and ensuring the project is completed successfully.

   A contractor service refers to a professional or company that provides various construction-related services, including building, renovation, maintenance, and repair. These services can be tailored to meet the specific needs of residential or commercial clients, offering solutions for a wide range of construction projects.
