Announcing the 2021 Trimble Viewpoint Construction Award Winners


VJS Construction Services, CSCI Construction, and Basic Resources, Inc. recognized for their innovative approaches to challenging projects.

We are excited to announce VJS Construction Services, CSCI, and Basic Resources, Inc as the 2021 Trimble Viewpoint Construction Award winners.

Each year, Trimble Viewpoint honors a select few of its customers that have overcome significant project challenges, showcased perseverance and growth, leveraged modern technologies in creative ways and more. This year, dozens of companies submitted their own projects in hopes of winning a Trimble Viewpoint Construction Award.

Awards were given in three categories: most challenging project, most exponential growth in a year and most creative use of Trimble Viewpoint technology. Congratulations to this year’s winners:

Greatest Pivot on a Project:

VJS Construction Services—Renovating Saint John’s on the Lake, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Starting in March 2020, VJS Construction Services began renovating the Saint John’s on the Lake retirement community. The project consisted of two main phases. The first being a 23-story tower that consisted of two half levels of underground parking, first floor commons, skilled nursing facilities, assisted and hybrid living, and independent living apartments. More than 100,000 man hours were spent pouring over 25,000 cubic yards of concrete.

The second phase consisted of demoing and reconstructing an existing three-story Health Service building, auditorium, and entrance. All of this was completed in between two buildings with 2” to spare on either side. With the help of Trimble Viewpoint software, VJS Construction was successful in this $105 million dollar project and enabled their team with the tools they needed to track invoices, subcontracts and manage project documentation.

Most Exponential Growth in a Year:

CSCI Construction—Navigating COVID-19 and Coming Out On Top, Florida

As the housing market quickly took off towards the end of 2020, CSCI’s customers knew they could rely on the contractor to get home shells built quickly. With a 25+-year track record, a team of highly specialized structural contracting professionals, Trimble Viewpoint technology, and long standing vendor relationships, CSCI was able to construct 65% more home units than the previous year.

Using Trimble Viewpoint’s Spectrum as it’s financial backbone, the organization has been able to quickly communicate with vendors using built-in APIs, and are working to automate several manual functions and drive greater efficiencies.

Most Creative Use of Trimble Viewpoint Technology:

Basic Resources, Inc.—Customer Self Service Portal, Modesto, California

Basic Resources, Inc. built a customer service portal for its employees, giving them real-time access to view invoices, tickets, order derails, and much more. Through an easy to access online portal, customers are able to electronically sign documents, track orders and shipment quantities.

With the help of Trimble Viewpoint software, Basic Resources, Inc. has seen great improvements in customer support and has reduced the amount of administrative work needed from employees and customers.

About the Process

This year’s winners were evaluated by seven judges, two of whom were previous Viewpoint Construction Award winners from Haugland Group and DP Electric Inc. Throughout the evaluation process, judges considered the circumstances under which the projects were completed, the complexity of the submission, the growth of the organization and the role Trimble Viewpoint technology played in the outcome.

“Technology was instrumental to Haugland Group’s success in 2020, providing efficiencies and time savings when it was most needed,” said Haugland Group Safety Director Mathew Murphy. “Technology was clearly the lynchpin for this year’s winners as well, allowing them to adapt and thrive regardless of what was thrown their way. It was an honor to be a part of the judging process and evaluating the commendable projects, which truly represent the strength and resilience of our industry.”
