Brasfield & Gorrie is a true general contractor—a contractor that works directly for the owner, overseeing subcontractors and self-performing our own work. We act as a general contractor on nearly 40 percent of our projects, and with almost five decades of experience and one of the largest craft workforces in the Southeast, we have some of the most experienced and qualified builders in the nation.
Our skilled project teams are accustomed to self-performing structural and carpentry components on every project. This self-perform culture creates project managers and superintendents who are knowledgeable and experienced in the finer details of efficient and quality construction and the proper work flow for a productive jobsite.
As a self-performing contractor, we typically build 10 to 50 percent of our projects with our own forces, and keeping our employees and subcontracted forces safe is our primary field focus. As part of our efforts, our craft training incorporates safety training as an essential component rather than as a stand-alone topic. For example, during elevated framework training, we teach fall protection as an integral part of elevated formwork construction. Our craft training also includes safety best practices, safety planning, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and safety policy training.
