General Contracting

Results you can count on.

For our clients who need a reliable, experienced builder to come in after design completion and deliver an extraordinary outcome, we offer General Contracting Services through bid or direct negotiation. 

While for the most part General Contracting projects come to us fully designed, EDiS still finds ways to add value to the process. General Contracting can be the best contracting method when:

  • a project is small and straightforward.
  • the client has dedicated and experienced staff for oversight on the project.
  • a fast-tracked/phased schedule is not important.

The EDiS general contracting approach focuses on safety, quality control, and trade contractor management. By carefully reviewing the specifics of each individual opportunity, our teams devise a project-specific approach that achieves the best project outcomes.

Subcontractor Bidding

One of the most important services we provide to our general contracting clients is our bidding services. EDiS is very well respected as a builder in the regional construction market, as we are known to be fair, organized, detail-oriented, and safe. Bid strategies are created to maximize success for the project budget, schedule, and market conditions. The implementation, marketing, and analysis of your project to trade contractors is critical to receiving the best pricing for your budget on bid day. Bidders want to bid to us, and we put that to work for you.

Schedule Management

Many organizations underestimate the amount of time a project can take from groundbreaking through occupancy. Our estimating team analyzes the schedule during the bidding process and works to detect potential schedule challenges that can be resolved prior to bidding. Once construction begins, EDiS teams use proven schedule monitoring and control processes to deliver your project on time, every time. When challenges arise, creative solutions are implemented to keep the project moving forward.


From our leadership team to each member of the construction team, our goal on every project is to send everyone home at the end of the day in the same condition they arrived. The commitment of a full-time Safety Manager and the implementation of a project-specific safety plan on every project are the keys to attaining this goal. Proper safety management mitigates claims, schedule delays, and cost increases.

Cost Management

EDiS’ cost management services deliver accurate invoicing, change order management, risk mitigation, and most importantly, we keep your organization informed about the financial aspects of your project. This includes change order analysis and management, invoice compilation, review and approval, and cash flow reporting.

"This was a complicated project in design. The design firm was located in California and all decisions had to go to the design firm and Volvo in New Jersey. EDiS was able to effectively communicate with all resulting in no delays or errors at any time during the project. The work site was kept clean and neat which was good for our customer appearance and safety. I would highly recommend EDiS for any project that requires very detailed compliance with a design plan."
