W.M. Jordan Company is a company with regional scope and national recognition—ranked yearly on the Engineering News Record list of Top 400 Contractors. We have shown that if you can dream it, we can build it, as our portfolio includes more than 1,100 projects valued at over $12 billion. Our clients represent a wide range of industries in the private and government sectors. We are proud that over 80% of our business comes from repeat clients.
Beginning in 1958, we continue a commitment to excellence by striving for quality in every job regardless of size, budget or time line. We still maintain the same foundation of integrity, trust and mutual respect that has made the business an ever-expanding success, and one of the premier contractors in the country. We live where we work and take immeasurable pride in the results we see every day.
Beyond bricks and mortar, people are the backbone of our business. We value relationships with the people we serve—our clients, contractors, suppliers and associates. Together we can enhance the quality of life for all. Since we believe that buildings are a reflection of the people who build them, we hire leaders of esteemed character who are fair, kind and considerate. By attracting and retaining the best construction professionals in our industry, we are able to maintain the highest standards and ethics. When you work with W.M. Jordan Company, you will experience positive attitudes, flexibility, transparency, timeliness, and quality workmanship.
Give your employees the opportunity to develop and the freedom to make decisions, and they will succeed. Beyond technical, hands-on training, we train our staff to be equipped for work and life in the 21st century. By offering our employees knowledge, experience, know-how and accomplishment, it is no surprise that job satisfaction and exceptional work follow.
A wide community of professionals works together with us to deliver quality projects on time and within budget. With over 50 years experience, we have established relationships with the majority of trade and specialty contractors, suppliers and firms. These include small, women-owned, minority (SWAM) and historically underutilized businesses (HUB). Our own Supplier Diversity Program sets the standard in the construction industry by actively mentoring these contractors on how to become certified and qualify for new opportunities.
People are our greatest resource and most valuable asset. We value their safety above all else. Our Safety Program is rooted in the belief that when you put people first, success will follow. Our Value-Based Safety Program requires worker buy-in and global thinking, as opposed to a Priority-Based Program which emphasizes specific tasks, outcomes and statistical results. Safety is everyone's job. We encourage employees to think of working safely as protecting their neighbors, their families and their friends. Safety is a way of life and a constant endeavor. Our goal is simple: we want every worker to go home safely to their families every night.
Advancements in technology make buildings increasingly complex. Yet the demand for timely, quality and cost effective delivery has not changed. In order to match quality with efficiency in construction, technology has to play a part. Our innovative use of cutting-edge technologies enables cohesive project management that increases efficiency and improves communication. That way you stay informed and your project stays on schedule. Our projects include new technologies like:
By incorporating technology early in a project's development, we can educate our partners on best practices and work together to improve overall project visualization, increase collaboration and productivity, and reduce the need for change orders and repeat work.
