COOKEVILLE – J&S Construction Company Inc. was recently honored by both A&S Building Systems and ATAS International Inc. at their respective awards ceremonies.
The first honor came when J&S Construction received the Top 25 Award from A&S Building Systems in Appreciation of Outstanding Performance. The award is presented to the top 25 authorized A&S builders worldwide, based on shipments/ranking during a particular calendar year.
“The J&S team continues, year after year, to be recognized as one of the leading providers of pre-engineered steel buildings in the nation,” said J&S Construction’s CEO, Johnny Stites. “We have been able to achieve this level of success because we continue to strive for perfection for our clients, and they reward our performance by consistently returning to J&S Construction year after year.
“This consistent level of performance is only possible when teams measure what is important to the client,” Stites added. “Only by having in place those critical measurements can a company know if it is improving, and we believe our clients deserve a construction partner who is constantly improving. Last year, over 75 percent of our clients were repeat clients, and since 1990, an astounding 99.6 percent of our clients say they will use J&S on their next project.”
A&S Building Systems, headquartered in Caryville, Tenn., is a leading pre-engineered building systems manufacturer and division of NCi, as well as being noted as one of the largest suppliers of metal building products in the industry.
The second honor came when J&S Construction was named third place installer winner by ATAS International Inc. for its use of InSpire transpired solar wall panels on the Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility, or TEMF, located at Fort Campbell, Ky.
The InSpire system used on the TEMF building preheats outside air before it enters the building to provide fresh air changes and natural humidification, as well as opportunities to reduce energy consumption. InSpire’s design features allow outside air to be drawn through the wall panel and into the wall cavity via ventilation fans. InSpire wall panels are specially coated in colors that allow absorption of the sun’s energy to preheat surface and cavity air. The solar generated, preheated air transpires into the wall cavity and is drawn into the building’s interior through conventional ductwork.
The TEMF building is part of the vehicle maintenance facility for the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade completed late last year. At 35,290 square feet, the vehicle maintenance dacility consists of the TEMF building, an organizational storage building (OSB), a hazardous waste storage building (HWSB), a petroleum oil and lubricant storage building (POL), a tactical unmanned aerial vehicle storage building (TUAV), an organization vehicle hardstand and privately-owned vehicle parking. These facility types are used for the purpose of maintaining and repairing vehicles, complete with equipment and parts storage and administrative offices.
Other environmentally-friendly features at the facility, in addition to the transpired solar wall panel system, include skylights, daylighting tubes, spray foam insulation, an air barrier system, radon piping system, low-flow water fixtures, energy recovery units, an in-floor radiant heating system, occupancy sensors, low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and recycled materials. The project was also designed to meet LEED Silver requirements by the U.S. Green Building Council.
