Exceptional Results

For this project, VJS reviewed our local subcontractor database to determine companies that were located within the District or surrounding areas. As a result, the following accomplishments were achieved:

■ 200,000 on-site manpower hours
■ 104 Full-time jobs
■ 54% of all workers lived in district
■ 58 local full-time construction positions
■ 13 of 35 bid packages awarded to local companies including manufacturers and
   material suppliers

VJS also held a World of Construction Fair at Badger Middle School. This provided students the opportunity to be brought into the construction world - providing them with insight on construction careers and a first hand understanding of what it takes to change and enhance our physical environment.
