Safety is not an option; it is an obligation of every member of the team to keep themselves and the people around them safe.

RJS plans safety into all that we do, and requires each employee, design firm, subcontractor, or site visitor to take it as seriously as we do.

The RJS safety culture is a proactive approach that is implemented on every site and with every client.  It is because of this safety culture that they have had only one time-loss accident since the company was founded in 1990, and no time-loss claims since 2000.  





RJS has built a reputation based on quality of construction, client satisfaction and the ability to build sound client relationships.  Over 90% of RJS’ clients in the last fifteen years have been return customers.

"It isn’t often that a contractor under promises and over delivers these days, so when RJS asked for a letter of recommendation I was only happy to do so."

“I have learned to trust RJS, knowing that they are good stewards of the resources with which we have to work and I have learned to trust them implicitly, knowing they understand that we need to achieve the best possible results.”



“Above and beyond the quality of construction, we found RJS to be professional, courteous, punctual and practical. The construction was completed on time, and there were no surprises”



“…what was most impressive was RJS’s constant follow-up after the job was complete to make sure my staff and I were pleased with the results and that nothing had been overlooked.”
