general contractor

Putrelo Building is one of the very few contractors in Central New York who regularly self performs utilizing local labor forces. Self-performing contractors can greatly benefit owners by controlling the project’s Quality, Budget, Schedule, and Safety. Like our name implies, we are a builder. Self-performing is about providing quality and service to our clients, which is the core of our values.

As a primarily self-performing general contractor, we use our own labor forces, which allows us to bring qualified labor, specialized equipment, and building expertise to a project. This enables us to forecast, identify and solve construction challenges, offer scheduling flexibility and demand the high level of quality and safety that is important to a successful project.

Contractors who regularly self-perform have a strong infrastructure of craftsmen and project managers who are successful working as a team, with most of them having been tradesmen themselves. When you work with a Builder who offers this service, you know they have spent years developing the infrastructure and number of professionals needed to carryout self-performed projects.

Often, self-performing particular scopes of work can benefit a project. More importantly, self-perform capabilities add value for all clients.

Self-performing Contractors can serve projects in four distinct ways:

#1: Saving time

Self-perform contractors know how to do the work. This comprehensive understanding of tasks often completed by subcontractors results in time savings through:

  • Efficient scheduling—Trade-specific experience leads to creating accurate, efficient, dependable schedules.
  • Faster team coalition—Self-performing reduces the time required to complete subcontractor selection and onboarding.
  • Flexibility—If a subcontractor falls behind schedule and is unable to recover using alternative solutions, self-perform capabilities give the general contractor the last-resort option to supplement that subcontractor’s workforce with in-house skilled laborers to get the project back on track.
  • Motivation—Inherently, the lead contractor has a greater incentive for completing self-perform work on time and within budget than do subcontractors.
  • Control—Self-performing heightens the ability to manage the schedule by using internal forces to perform the work.

#2: Saving money

Self-performing generates a thorough knowledge of task-related labor necessities, material options and availability, and market fluctuations that affect both. During preconstruction, the lead contractor’s self-perform knowledge provides owners and architects with accurate budget information for their designs as well as viable material alternatives. Having worked with a variety of materials, the general contractor can recommend selections that will provide the best value for each project.

#3: Controlling quality

After years of building a talented team of craft workers, self-perform contractors have concrete finishers, carpenters, and millworkers at their fingertips. Self-perform crews that have worked together on project after project yield high quality products through efficient methods. When their own forces are responsible for work on site, the lead contractor can guarantee excellent quality as well as on-time, in-budget completion of those trades.

#4: Ensuring safety

When an experienced self-perform crew works on project sites, they follow and enforce the lead contractor’s safety standards, enhancing the safety focus already provided by an in-house safety department and individual project teams. Skilled laborers on site offer extra sets of trained eyes to watch for and correct risky behaviors.
