Partnering with Subcontractors
As consistent with the building industry, Semmes & Co Builders, Inc. partners with experienced Subcontractors for certain aspects of the job. The General Contractor-Subcontractor relationship is based on mutual respect and collaboration to ensure the highest quality construction project possible. At Semmes we are quite fortunate to work with some of the best Subcontractors in our area, and as the following letter confirms, our Subcontractors feel the same about us.

I have worked with many general contractors on the Central Coast over the last 34 years.
Working with Semmes has been a consistently gratifying experience for me on all occasions.
Semmes is deeply committed to all details of each project. They keep me up to date with scheduling dates, client change orders, and all technical aspects regarding my responsibilities as a subcontractor. Semmes is very fair regarding the situational changes that occur during a project. If something off-plan appears during production, we have been able to find solutions that get the job done with great efficiency. They even remind me of billing cycles, to insure that I get paid in the timeliest manner.
Subcontractors, like myself, are used to getting pushed by general contractors into tight time-frames and production requirements. Semmes has always taken my input and perspective into account, thus making jobs flow effectively. What is called for on plans drawn up in an Architect’s office doesn’t always translate into real-world practicality. Semmes and I have worked together to find solutions that were mutually beneficial for us and most importantly, for the client.
Semmes is a general contractor that allows their subcontractors to do their best work. Once the parameters are set in motion, I am encouraged to determine and work in partnership on the best way to take on each task. Checking in with Semmes during the work day allows me to ask any questions requiring answers. The Semmes team has a sharp eye, and understands what each subcontractor is accomplishing. I respect Semmes for these reasons which also make it easy to do great work for each of their clients.
I would not hesitate to recommend Semmes & Co. Builders, Inc. to build any project.
