On New Construction, Who Is The Long Term Customer: Building Owners, Or GC?

A member submitted this question:

"This is a question for both integrators or building owners/ end users:

    • During the new construction process, do the integrators work for the building owners/ end users or do they work for the GC?
    • For end users: Do integrators work for you during construction, or do they work for the GC?

Any and all responses to this question would be helpful. "
