Company Story:

SJ Construction Consulting, LLC founder, Scott Jennings, is a 25-year veteran of the heavy/civil construction industry with national experience in roles ranging from project engineer to owner.  After exiting his construction company, he saw a market in which good contractors wanted to be better and he was able to impart value into the industry. Today, SJ Construction Consulting grows their business by seeking partnerships and relationships with service and product providers to the construction industry.  When they find a product they believe in, not only do they use it in their business, they share it with other clients so that they become better and more efficient in their operations.  SJ Construction Consulting also conducts training sessions in plan reading, estimating, and change management.  Their clients are contractors and design professionals which pass on their name to other clients.

Overcoming Challenges:

SJ Construction Consulting wants great clients, and projects which can benefit from their years of experience.  Finding clients that realize they need help and recognize the tremendous value SJ Construction Consulting can bring is a challenge.  To overcome this challenge, they maintain a positive image in the industry by participating in associations such as the American Society of Civil Engineers, the National Utility Contractors Association,  and the Alliance of Merger and Acquisition Advisors. In addition, they focus on nurturing their industry relationships, forming new relationships and getting the word out about their company through word of mouth, social media and other avenues.

“STACK exudes competence to a client when used as a part of a proposal or during a negotiation.”
Scott Jennings
President, SJ Construction Consulting

How STACK Helps SJ Construction Consulting:

At the beginning of his career, Scott used scales and highlighters for takeoffs.  Later, he upgraded to an on screen takeoff software which he subsequently found inferior to STACK.  Scott was introduced to STACK when he sat in on demonstration and met the team at Conexpo.  He found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable and STACK to be simple to use and exactly what he needed!

After using STACK, Scott says their takeoff speed has increased three times over their old methods AND it’s three times more accurate too!  Although they still use some paper plans, their dependence on them has decreased which has saved them about $1000/year in printing and paper expenses.  Besides the increased efficiency and accuracy, Scott says that STACK exudes competence to a client when used as a part of a proposal or during a negotiation.  Showing the highlighted takeoff sheets and legends makes for a very professional presentation.
