Partnering with a builder that self-performs is one of the best ways to minimize schedule delays and maximize the certainty every owner is seeking. Many projects often require simultaneous execution of complicated construction techniques and equipment installation. At many healthcare facilities, McCarthy often performs numerous work packages including structural concrete, plumbing, other piping and installation of mechanical and medical equipment. Complex construction of this nature requires extraordinary coordination. Experienced self-performing builders can plan and execute the work themselves while executing greater control over the entire process from planning to budgeting and scheduling to completing the project on time.
Safety should be every contractor’s No. 1 priority, and it’s even more important on active jobsites like hospitals or college campuses. Self-performing builders understand which parts of the building process can increase risk and cause lengthy delays — making their jobsites inherently safer and outcomes more certain. At McCarthy, we nurture a company-wide culture of safety and start every day on the jobsite with a focus on safety planning. It’s one of the many reasons we’ve been recognized as the safest large contractor in America.
Self-performing builders have the in-house expertise to estimate costs more accurately and provide the certainty owners want. Knowing how to build isn’t valuable on the jobsite alone. During the preconstruction phase, these builders can work closely with their design partners to determine project constructability based on budget parameters, then can recommend adjustments as needed. Once construction is underway, self-perform builders can work with their in-house talent or better manage trade partners to help keep the project on schedule and minimize the potential for delays and cost overruns
With so many experts on the ground at the same time, it’s easier to control the quality of craftsmanship. When there’s an issue on the jobsite, self-performing builders know how to solve it themselves. They also know how to work with their trade partners to plan and deliver exact results.Self-performing builders with that level of knowledge, self-reliance and dedication to quality give owners even more certainty around project outcomes.
Because of the complexity and amount of time it takes to complete large construction projects, schedule and budget are always top of mind. Clients simply can’t plan to bring in employees, host events, take on new patients or start a new school year without being sure of when the doors can open — and how much it will cost. By increasing control of the schedule and managing costs appropriately, self-performing some of the work can help provide a level of certainty that gives clients the confidence they need to plan their ribbon cutting — on time and within their budget.
