How to set up the terms when someone is acting as GC for your own project?
We are planning on constructing a duplex and taking on the role of Project Manager. We have a GC who would sign on as the general contractor on the building permit but then allow us to oversee the day-to-day responsibilities and hire my own subcontractors. In return for leveraging their license, we've agreed to pay the GC a fixed fee. We're interested in connecting with anyone who has navigated a similar scenario to share their insights.
What measures can we take to ensure the GC doesn't withdraw its license during the construction of the duplex?
Could you highlight potential challenges and recommend provisions to include in the contract?
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated!
