“I have most recently have had the pleasure of working with VJS in my role as Owners Representative for MSOE. VJS was selected to be the Construction Manager for our Viets Memorial Tower project. VJS has been a joy to work with as their team has brought innovative ideas to help the project. VJS continually keeps the school in mind during the project, helping bring the best value possible for this project.”
