VJS Construction Services provides general contractors, construction managers and design builders, specializing in developing facilities for education, senior living, housing, retail, manufacturing, medical, corporate office, religious and government use.

As VJS Construction Services continues to grow, its biggest obstacles include “the current labor force and the volatility of the economy,” says Craig Jorgensen, president of the company. To combat the labor shortage, VJS launched an internship program for those considering careers in construction.

Looking forward, VJS Construction Services sees continued opportunities in the senior living area. Jorgensen said, “many of the campuses we have worked with over the years are reconfiguring, retooling, expanding, or rethinking how they deliver their housing experiences.”

Education is another market where VJS sees opportunities.
