General Contracting

General Contracting

 

Infinity provides general contracting services on both public and private projects.  Our general contracting portfolio totals more than $625 million.  The best scenario for using this traditional construction delivery method is when the Owner has plenty of time to complete the project, when the design is comparatively straightforward, and when site issues are minimal.

Infinity has delivered general contracting projects in a variety of contract formats ranging from lump sum public bidding, to invitation-only private bidding, to negotiated lump sum and cost-plus.

Self-performance is relatively common in general contracting.  As a union contractor signatory to the Ohio & Vicinity Regional Council of Carpenters, we can self-perform metal studs and drywall, acoustical ceilings, wood framing, rough carpentry, finish carpentry and millwork installation.   Our craft work force ranges from 15-40 trade professionals, dependent upon workload.

Self-performance saves subcontractor mark-ups.  It gives our superintendent more options when off-shift work is necessary.  It is also an effective means of controlling quality, and completing punch lists in a timely manner.

In 2011, The State of Ohio passed a landmark Construction Reform Act.  It has had a profound effect on the marketplace and Infinity’s portfolio of business.  In 2018, general contracting represented roughly 40% of our construction work-in-place.  This the lowest percentage in our 22-year history.
