What makes a city rise,
buildings or vision?
Our employees not only build the communities they live in, they nurture them for the next generation. We complement their efforts through involvement and contributions to advance the construction industry. We all know that each of us has a role in creating a better community for everyone.
We understand the great responsibility that is entrusted to us when we build the buildings that people live, work and play in. These buildings shape our communities and our lives.

All eighties Video Gamers unite! In its third year, Parade of Playhouses pairs design teams and general contractors and assigns the teams with different categories. This year, with Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, we will be building an eighties video game themed playhouse.
We changed our building materials for a good cause. After 2,976 cans, the Jaynes and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini team completed Los Miniones sculpture for Canstruction 2016. The team worked to balance the old and the new by creating a scene where Minions, made famous by Despicable Me, were watching Steamboat Willie.
Jaynes Corporation partnered with Dekker/Perich/Sabatini and New Mexico Appleseed on a fundraising project to create playhouses that were auctioned off at an event named “Parade of Playhouses.” Other local architects, builders, and designers also participated in this effort.
Rusty Hiers, Jaynes Project Manager, had his head shaved again for the 5th year in a row to stand in solidarity with kids being treated for cancer. In the United States, more children are lost to cancer than any other disease and worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes.
On November 13th, we had a groundbreaking ceremony at the Aspen Elementary School job site. We had the silver shovels and new Jaynes hard hats all ready for the 1, 2, 3 toss some dirt picture. You know – the one where everyone lines up and takes a scoop of dirt and we call it a groundbreaking! Well, as you might have guessed, this one was not much different than any other groundbreaking ceremony that Jaynes has been a part of. Only one difference!
