At J&S Construction Company, Inc., we believe in "Going the Extra Mile." What exactly does that mean for you, the client?
In Biblical times, the law allowed a Roman soldier to make a Jewish man carry his backpack for exactly one Roman mile, or a thousand paces. At that time, no one liked being forced to carry anything any distance for a Roman soldier. Jesus said if they were required to carry it a mile, and then carry it two miles - Matthew 5:41.
This means we should go beyond what is expected of us in helping others. At J&S, we have adopted this philosophy and it shows in the quality of our work and in the comments of our clients.
J&S got its start in 1957 by founder, John Stites. Today, more than 50 years later, John’s sons, Jack Stites and John D. Stites II, are leading J&S as one of the premier construction firms in Tennessee. The company self performs over 65 percent of on-site work with the finest skilled labor in the industry.
We are not only recognized as a premier contractor, our mission and vision is to raise the level of competency in the construction industry. Our vision, mission and shared values are as follows:
To be the model of integrity and excellence by which the construction industry is measured.
To exceed stakeholder (clients, employees, vendors, and owners) expectations by exercising Christian Principles in business activities.
J&S Construction has been successful in living our mission on behalf of our clients. Since 1990, J&S Construction has sent out a survey at the conclusion of every project.
