Batson-Cook’s history of success on diverse project types results from having a staff of professionals who not only know how to manage the processes of construction, but also have the technical understanding of how to build.

The relationships we build with subcontractors, coupled with our hands-on supervision and the ability to self-perform a variety of trades, provide our superintendents with the resources necessary to execute complex projects successfully.

Batson-Cook maintains field forces capable of self-performing a variety of trades including:

  • Excavation and Fine Grading
  • Structural Excavation Backfill and Fine Grading
  • Structural Concrete and Formwork
  • Building Layout Engineering
  • Weather Protection
  • Safety
  • Barricades and Signage
  • Dust Protection
  • Clean-Up
  • Demolition
  • Scaffolding
  • Hoisting
  • Miscellaneous Steel Erection
  • Rough Carpentry
  • Finish Carpentry
  • Doors, Frames and Hardware
  • Minor Caulking and Insulation
  • Specialties Installation
  • FF&E Installation
  • Hardscapes and Decorative Concrete
  • Cabinet Fabrication and Installation
  • Window Installations
  • Installation of Specialty Items
  • Framing and Drywall
  • Painting
  • Miscellaneous metals
  • Miscellaneous specialties
  • Toilet Accessories
  • Punchlist

We typically self-perform up to 15-percent of the work with our own forces depending on the requirements of the project. We use our self-performance capability to closely monitor the pricing and performance of subcontractors. We know what building components should cost and how long the work should take to complete. Since every project is unique, we do not always self-perform and always consult with the owner beforehand. Factors such as trade partner market conditions (pricing), availability of trade partners, availability of our self-perform crews, time of the year, project schedule and phasing requirements are carefully considered before making a decision to self-perform.
