To truly be a general contractor is to be a conductor: While there is certain work done by our own personnel, the majority of the details on any project are performed by others. As a conductor "manages" the different instrument sections to achieve the desired sound, so we manage the various construction disciplines to achieve the vision of our client.
Our knowledge across disciplines and experience across time afford us a unique perspective. We manage all the processes necessary for a successful building project for our client. We are also proficient at many popular software programs that are favored by owners such as Lucernex, ProCore, Project Mates and eProcurement. As an owner, you have enough decisions to make and things that concern you. Let us as your General Contractor take away your construction coordination concerns.
As your General Contractor, we manage all needed subcontractors across all trades such as the mechanical engineer, installers of systems like HVAC, and electricians, plumbers, painters, and flooring experts. At Blanton, we create the job schedules for our subcontractors and ensuring everyone sticks to the timeline so your building will get done on time. We are also responsible for any special equipment that might be needed on the site like man-lifts and cranes etc. and for getting that equipment to the site as soon as it is needed.
Blanton Construction, has over 48 years in business that has allowed us to make excellent bonds with our subcontractors and we know they can count on us to keep working, and we can count on them to get the job done right.
