The safety of our employees, clients, and the general public is our first and foremost concern. It is an investment, not an expense.

Our safety program begins with an identification of needs and requirements before construction begins, and it continues through the entire project. The VJS Renewable Energy team implements thorough procedures to protect employees and users on the construction site.

VJS Renewable Energy utilizes a safety director who visits jobsites regularly and oversees our entire safety program. All project superintendents are trained extensively in safety and each week they hold safety-related toolbox talks with all job foremen and construction crews. We also provide continual safety standards training to our employees.

Craig Jorgensen


Craig joined VJS Construction Services in 1988 as a Project Manager, was appointed Vice President in 1992, and named President in 1999. Prior to starting his tenure at VJS, Craig spent one year working for a general contractor in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The phrase that Craig has coined, and you will hear him say in employee meetings or when talking about VJS’ commitment to its clients and employees is “Anything Less Than Exceptional Is Unacceptable.”

Craig also has a strong dedication to the community, continually formulating ways for not only his family but for how VJS can continue the tradition of giving back to the community. For several years, Craig has been involved with the United Way, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts and countless other nonprofit organizations.

John Winckler

Director of Business Development

John brings over 10 years of experience managing energy sector industrial projects. He has collaborated with owners, developers, and technology providers to upgrade over 30,000 scfm of biogas that has been cycled into municipal use through injection into the natural gas pipeline or used for vehicle fueling. John’s gas-to-energy work has contributed to creating over 240 MW of energy through the installation of 220 gensets and 4 turbines. This work has helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions, offset the use of non-renewable resources, and reduced environmental compliance costs.

John will be expanding the renewable energy sector for VJS to increase the geographical reach of the company. In his new role, he will continue to nurture and grow his renewable energy contacts to bring forth opportunities and projects that will grow the company.
