In contracting work, success really does depend on relationships. And none are more critical than those with subcontractors. We count on them to represent us and to carry out work to meet or exceed each owner’s expectations. While fine craftsmanship, construction skills and technical qualifications are essential, so are reliability, integrity, energy, stability and sound judgment. So once trust and respect are established, it’s not surprising that our relationships with subcontractors often go on for years. Even decades.
