Recently I read an article by a large General Contractor about the benefits of self-performing.  They claim this strategy will create better results, provide a solution to the labor force problems, guarantee quality, stronger safety and better collaboration. As a subcontractor, we view this strategy through a different lens and would like to offer our perspective. Highly skilled subcontractors can be leveraged to deliver more value to projects and ultimately the end-user. Here are a few ways in which we believe subcontractors add value.

Highly Trained Workforce

For over thirty years, our passion has been to recruit and train the finest craft workers across various trades. The recruitment process alone is a formidable challenge. The real task begins once we hire our workforce, honing their skills into specialized trade expertise. The reality is, highly skilled tradespeople are scarce, a fact we know well as we’ve developed in-house training programs to cultivate trade skills.

If you want a highly trained workforce, it requires a large investment in non-revenue generating roles – recruiters, craft trainers, HR, and labor benefits coordinators. These support roles and their associated costs are indispensable.

Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world. The durability, strength, and versatility are unmatched. Concrete in the simplest form is comprised of cement, aggregate (large and small), and water. Modern concrete mixes often contain chemical admixtures that can greatly enhance the properties of the mix and/or the final cured material. With all the technological advances since concrete was first used thousands of years ago one fact still holds true……concrete cracks. Sometimes the cracks are on a microscopic level and other times they impact the functionality of the intended structure. As contractors and engineers, we cannot “cure” concrete cracking, but we can treat the “symptoms” and mitigate cracking to provide a useful product.

What Are Common Causes of Cracking?

Shrinkage: The most common cause of excessive concrete cracking is related to the volume change of concrete when it cures. Traditional concrete loses moisture when it cures and the resulting shrinkage exceeds the concrete’s ability to resist tension, resulting in areas where the concrete stress is relieved in the form of cracks.  Shrinkage cracking can be minimized by allowing concrete to shrink in a controlled manner.
