For an addition like this many Remodeling - General Contractors can do it - as will some Builders looking for a smaller filler job in between total house or major addition jobs.

If you instead of an addition in space internal to the existing house, then a Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath contractor is what you want.

Be sure to talk to the architect doing the plans about legality of doing this and about whether this is going to change the "rooms" or "bedrooms" rating of the house - you generally do not want to "downgrade" the number of rooms or bedrooms in a house because that reduces resale value and desireability. Also, depending on yard quality (muddiness) and general area environment (snow/ice/rain etc) if this is mudroom or enclosed entry or such then you and your architect, perhaps with some input from your favorite realtor, should consider whether the added powder room and main floor washer ddryer is worth more to the resale appeal of the house than the mudroom/entry - or maybe consider building an extension at the entrance (presumably a back door) as an enclosed entry or porch at the same time to replace the existing space.
