The goal was to build a team who embraced three fundamental concepts: “Build It Before We Get There,” “Performance and Quality” and “Building Strong Relationships.” Ten years later, the company has more than 400 employees in Northern and Southern California – designing, prefabricating, and installing the full mechanical package for mid- to high-rise buildings, hotels, mixed-use projects, student hous- ing, and much more. When the company was founded, leadership sought to develop an environment where people were eager to come to work, a place where people would be en- couraged to stretch their minds, use their creativity, and implement their ideas to 19J Midtown | Sacramento help make something great – all without hierarchies, road blocks or judgement.
