Should I hire a general contractor for a project if the contractor does not have general liability insurance?

Who will be my main contact when we have questions about project construction?

Ocean Gate makes frequent communication with each of our clients a top priority. Your project will be assigned a Project Team consisting of a Project Manager, Superintendent and Project Coordinator. Following contract execution, we will schedule a pre-construction meeting to discuss scheduling, contact information, logistics, your concerns and preferences, etc. During this meeting, we will also determine the chain of contact for various aspects of the project. In addition, our President, Mark MacDonald, is always available to address your questions and concerns.

How does Ocean Gate handle change orders?

Ocean Gate has a change order approval process that is either discussed at the pre-construction meeting or is stipulated in the contract. Parties come to a mutual agreement to keep the lines of communication open during the construction process.

Can I track the progress of my project online?
