A construction contractor is a firm or individual that provides independent, professional services in the construction industry to third-party employers. A contractor is someone who is hired to build something. ... When you think of contractor, you may picture construction sites; however, the word has other meanings as well. Legally, if you sign a contract to perform a specific job then you are what is known as a contractor.
Types of Building Contractors
1. General Contractor. A general contractor oversees a building project from start to finish. ...
2. Electrician. Electricians work on virtually every construction project, because very few buildings are built today without electricity. ...
3. Plumber. ...
4. Heating and Ductwork. ...
5. Drywaller. ...
6. Painter. ...
7. Finish Carpenter. ...

A general contractor is responsible for providing all of the material, labor, equipment (such as engineering vehicles and tools) and services necessary for the construction of the project. A general contractor often hires specialized subcontractors to perform all or portions of the construction work. The responsibility of a contractor in construction is the execution of the work activities that are required for the completion of the project.
A construction manager will supervise and manage contractors and laborers at construction sites. Often they meet with architects, specialized trade employees, and civil engineers on projects or upcoming builds. They must address emergencies, work delays, or other problems that affect the construction project.
The difference between a "construction company" and a "contractor" is that a construction company is a company with expertise and resources suitable for undertaking construction work (like the L&T) and a contractor is a company or individual contracted to do certain work for a different company or individualS.
You probably knew this already, but the actual difference is that typically, general or prime contractors are hired directly by the property owner, while subcontractors are typically hired by a party other than the property owner.
A subcontractor is an individual or a business that signs a contract to perform part or all of the obligations of another's contract. A subcontractor is a company or person whom a general contractor hires to perform a specific task as part of an overall project and normally pays for services provided to the project. Project developers subcontract electricians, plumbers, carpenters, drywallers, carpet layers, painters, landscapers, roofers, and flooring specialists to do most of the work.
e.g. EPC Project, Construction, Infra, BOT/PPP, Contract, PAD AC Installation, Software Projects etc.
Project management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints. This information is usually described in project documentation, created at the beginning of the development process. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary—and more ambitious—challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and apply them to meet pre-defined objectives.
e.g. Departments like Enginnering, Procurement, Manufacturing, Construction, Commissioning etc.
A work-breakdown structure (WBS) in project management and systems engineering, is a deliverable-oriented breakdown of a project into smaller components. A work breakdown structure is a key project deliverable that organizes the team's work into manageable sections. The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK 5) defines the work-breakdown structure "A hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables."
e.g. Engineering Drawings, Procured or Manufactured items, Construction & Commissioning Service, Software module etc.
A Product Breakdown Structure (PBS) is a hierarchical structure of things that the project will make or outcomes that it will deliver. It can be thought of as the project shopping list. It decomposes a Main Project Product into its constituent parts in the form of a hierarchical structure.
e.g. Preparing PO, Receiving Material, QC, Cutting, Fitting, Installing etc.
Every Product to be delivered as per PBS requires certain ERP Activities to be performed. This feature is missing in most project management softwares. Unless you integrate ERP tightly with project management you cannot execute projects properly.
e.g. Disciplinewise engineers like Process, Civil, Electrical, Instruments, Mechanical, Piping, Programmers etc.
Disciplinewise Teams or People are required to do above mentioned Activities to deliver Product mentioned in PBS. Who will perform or do what work is assigned by Project Incharge or Department Manager. System automatically makes TODO List for Teams and measures delays/progress.
