When people hear the word “construction,” hard hats, concrete pours, hammering and welding are often what come to mind first. They’re less likely to consider toilets. On a site as large as the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) Addition project, having clean and accessible facilities for hundreds of workers is paramount.

Luckily, Construction Site Services is on the job.

Victoria Richardson and her partner, Mickael Heller, own Construction Site Services, a contractor that provides outdoor sanitation services including portable toilets and hand washing stations for construction sites and events. In addition to equipment, the company also provides servicing, sanitization and maintenance services. Richardson and Heller have been involved with the Addition project since excavation first began in 2018. With the coronavirus pandemic, their services have become more important than ever. They currently have about 60 units on site.

Victoria and Mickael believe this project has been successful, in part, because of the personalized and high-level of service they provide to the Clark/Lewis team.

“We’re proud that we have close communication with all of the site managers,” Victoria says. “We have been told by workers that our units are the cleanest they have ever been in. We strive to keep this standard, as it’s important for our brand.”

Due to the massive size of the Addition project, Victoria and Mickael have learned a few lessons on how to scale their sanitation services to fit the needs of workers.

“We have learned to stay on our toes,” Victoria says. “Schedules can change very quickly based on activities such as concrete pours, deliveries from other vendors, crane availability and even wind speed, which can affect the ability to fly the units up for servicing.”

With their depth of experience and lessons learned on the Addition, Victoria and Mickael hope that other companies will enlist their services, as well as those of other WMBE contractors, for large projects in the future.
