Business Studies Case study Assignment on The general contractor plays a critical role in the realization of the finished development or building

The general contractor plays a critical role in the realization of the finished development or building. However, including the general contractor early in the design process does not always happen. A fully integrated team that includes the general contractor in the earliest stages of design helps to ensure that construction will go smoothly and can reduce the likelihood of unanticipated costs. With sustainable development and construction practices comes special measures that need additional due diligence by the contractor team.

Continue the analysis of your case study focusing on the general contractor’s involvement. In a two page Word document, address the following:

Discuss the timing of when the general contractor became a part of the development or building design team. Explain why the general contractor should be at the table as early as the other members of the team.
What are the specific building systems involved in the project? (e.g. energy generation systems, water resource management systems, indoor air quality systems, etc.)
Identify the specific things that the general contractor had to do to meet or enhance the sustainability objectives for the project.
Make recommendations for a sustainability plan for your case study project that addresses site, dust, IAQ, waste management and material procurement and reuse.
