General Contractor GC

smino ensures complete, searchable and legally compliant documentation of your construction projects and reduces your administrative workload. Learn more
As a general contractor, you perform orders for your clients. You take on a central role in your client's project. Compared to a general transferee, you perform the construction services yourself. The task of the general contractor (GC) is therefore the construction of the building up until the turnkey result. The necessary general conditions are defined in a general contractor agreement between the client and the general contractor. smino helps you with your tasks in order to fulfill your client's ideas to their satisfaction.

For general contractors, construction work is often multifaceted and requires a wide variety of construction services from the parties involved. For general contractors, new construction sites are added to existing ones and others are completed in turn. With smino, general contractors can keep track of construction progress at all times. Tasks can be entered effortlessly and forwarded to the responsible person. With the BIM software, general contractors can create a wide variety of models and compare them with each other to find the optimal solution for their construction.

smino enables structured and effective work for general contractors.
This allows you to effortlessly fulfill the deliverables of the general contractor agreement and assure the client. In some cases, a subcontractor is called on to take over certain construction work from the general contractor. This can also be referred to as a partial general contractor.

With or without a subcontractor, general contractors can keep track of all their projects at any time with smino.
Fulfill your general contractor agreement easily and effectively with comprehensive software solutions. Thanks to the ease of use and clarity, the administrative burden for general contractors is kept as low as possible, which saves time as well as effort.
