Dear Friends ,

I started Hunt Construction Services six years ago with the goal of being able to provide construction expertise to our family of clients. My objective has always been to deliver the same level of service and transparency in construction that we provide with our real estate acquisition and disposition services. It was a natural fit - there are very few commercial real estate transactions that do not require construction or renovation of some kind.

While we provide both Construction Management and General Contracting services, I find that we lean toward Construction Management whenever possible. Why? Our clients save money and our work is totally transparent, with no hidden charges or mysterious work-orders. There are, however, those occasions where General Contracting is preferred by our client. Our client will usually say something like, "David, I am happy to pay you the extra fees. Just get it done and let me concentrate on my business." Obviously, we take good care of our clients, whatever their preferred delivery of construction services.

This month's article details the differences between Construction Management and General Contracting. If you have commercial construction work to be done, you definitely want to consider the advantages of both, and we would be happy to walk you through that decision-making process.

Oh, the possibilities!
