With a focus on building a value system of trust with clients and the community, Construction Services, Inc. (CSI) of Tampa used its existing customer relationships to create a niche market and is now adding project managers and junior superintendents to its staff. CSI is a small, locally owned design-build firm specializing in the construction management of medical facilities, offices, warehouses, and restaurants.
is expecting to hire project managers to oversee design-build projects from start to finish including project administration and field staff management; junior superintendents will complete field operations. The company employs just 10 people, but creates employment opportunities for over 1,000 individuals who are connected through each of their construction projects.
“We’re a small company that is helping with the economic impact of our community,” says President Fred Lay.
Although the economy changed profits and forward direction for many small businesses, CSI has consistently added staff over the past four years and recently completed a 5,000-square-feet office expansion.
As the economic climate shifted, CSI began to focus their efforts on philanthropic involvement and created CSI Cares
, an initiative that rallies to keep employees personally involved in the community. Ultimately, giving back and committing to the community’s needs resulted in new contacts and increased business opportunities for CSI. Through their community service initiatives, CSI additionally contributed over $100,000 in 2012.
