What is Self-perform?

Self-perform, in the context of the construction industry, refers to the ability of a construction company to use its own workforce to accomplish certain specific tasks or projects, rather than outsourcing or subcontracting to external teams or entities. By opting to self-perform, the company can have direct control over the quality of work, project timeline, cost management, and overall productivity. For example, a construction firm may choose to self-perform tasks like concrete placement, plumbing, electrical work, and roofing operations, maintaining stringent quality standards all along. However, it is essential for companies undertaking self-perform tasks to have skilled and trained personnel who can efficiently execute the work. To sum up, self-perform allows construction firms to maintain better control over the project while potentially saving costs and enhancing efficiency.
