Q4 2021

18 BUILD Q4 2021 Sep21001 You Build It, J&S Cleans It J&S Construction Clean Up Inc. was founded in 2017 with need for an honest and reliable cleaning company that can communicate well and listen to client needs. BUILD magazine has recognised the company’s outstanding commitment to its team and clients with 2021’s Leading Provider of Commercial and Construction Cleaning Services – California award. &S Construction Clean Up Inc. provides postconstruction clean-up to large developers as well as to individual locations, with core values of safety, quality, integrity, care for employees, excellent service, and innovation at the heart of everything it does. Its team’s 30+ years of experience in local and national commercial and construction cleaning, along with innovative thinking and ideas mean it can provide the highest quality services at very competitive pricing, making the company one of the most respected and reliable to work with. Expanding and remodelling is exciting for businesses and great for the economy – J&S understands the need for keeping construction sites clean of dust and debris to ensure tenants and customers are safe and satisfied. Additionally, the company provides commercial janitorial services to a variety of institutions such as offices, restaurants, medical, government, schools, gyms, supermarkets, industrial, and retail. It is responsible for ensuring that these businesses and organisations are kept sanitised and looking tidy to meet the highest standards. J&S works with several general contractors which it finds from several resources. Some are online bidding platforms, online Google advertisements, and a lot of networking through its J woman-owned, minority certifications and construction-specific associations such as NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction). It stands out from competitors due to its certifications, having its construction license, its ability to work at very short notice and complete schedules, and national footprint. The company couldn’t be where it is today without its cleaners who are its success story. They are essential to the organisation and to ensuring clients have a clean and safe environment. When J&S hires, it looks for candidates who are not challenged by an always changing environment and are ready to take on new challenges. J&S also finds great success in its collaborative and transparent culture. It believes in having clear communication with its clients and employees. This helps each department to understand the organisation’s aims and encourages collaboration and the sharing of ideas in order to achieve the most success possible with each project. Employees also have satisfaction in knowing they are part of what makes the whole project successful and that what they say and think matters. J&S is a highly successful company, but it still has its challenges, especially during the last 18 months. In the construction industry, there was a period during the pandemic where all projects were put on hold, which caused them to build up, meaning a large backlog of work for various trades. So, when the industry opened back up, J&S found itself having to catch up and hire more labour. The company is constantly hiring and spends a lot of time training because it hires people with little or no background in the industry. On the other hand, J&S found itself very busy due to the pandemic and was able to connect with its communities and family shelters and donate needed supplies. Another challenge the company faced was the added costs due to the pandemic such as additional PPE, as well as health screening applications, purchased disinfecting solutions, and items to make the office and field safer. Looking towards the rest of 2021 and onwards, J&S will continue expanding its footprint and it wants to reach as many projects as possible, while also hiring more women in the trade and giving its employees the tools needed in order to grow.
