Biscred: Commercial Developers, Builders and Contractors

Developers, General Contractors and Construction Companies

How developers, GCs and construction professionals fit into Biscred’s CRE landscape.

Company Industries: How Biscred Identifies Developers, General Contractors and Construction Companies


CRE Developer

Real estate developers are responsible for the business and financial aspects of construction and development projects. Biscred defines CRE developers as a business or individual who is responsible for overall planning and execution of a construction project. They acquire land, obtain permits and inspections, secure financing, set budgets, hire contractors, and oversee the entire construction process. Developers also handle marketing and selling the project.


Our database includes 16,663 companies that do commercial real estate development, and 113,021 professionals who work in CRE development.


Where can you find CRE developers?

  • Midwest (12 states): 2,833 companies and 30,188 people

  • Northeast (12 states) : 4,576 companies and 43,906 people

  • Southeast (12 states): 4,406 companies and 42,562 people

  • Southwest (4 states): 2,428 companies and 28,988 people

  • West (11 states): 3,941 companies and 43,261 people


CRE developers’ asset experience

  • Office: 8,052 companies and 60,659 people that do office building development

  • Mixed-Use: 6,294 companies and 56,000 people in mixed-use development

CRE General Contractor

General contractors are responsible for the construction and management of a building project. Biscred’s definition of general contractor is a person or company that is responsible for the construction of a building or structure. A developer hires the general contractor to manage the entire construction process. GCs plan and oversee the work of subcontractors and make sure projects are finished on time, within budget and within quality standards.

Biscred’s database gives you contact information for 24,493 companies and 87,734 professionals that identify as CRE general contractors.

CRE Construction Companies

General contractors hire construction companies to do the work (some companies offer both general contracting and construction). As subcontractors, the construction company is usually responsible for specific parts of a construction project. Construction company subcontractors include roofers, electricians, plumbers, HVAC companies, concrete workers, framers, and even demolition companies.
