Haskell recently completed this JCLDS patron housing project in Kinshasa, the largest city in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in seven months. The project would have taken three years using conventional construction methods.

Project Manager Sought for Innovative Modular Construction Program

Haskell's cutting-edge modular delivery system dramatically cuts construction times and allows it to keep pace with the JCLDS Church's rapid global growth. 


Haskell has combined its strong relationship with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (JCLDS) and its position as a leader in Design, Manufacture, Construct (DMC) project delivery.

Simply put, the fast-growing church needs highly ornate temples and other high-quality supporting structures quickly in all corners of the globe, and Haskell’s teams deliver.

Currently, Haskell Religious & Cultural Division has an opening for a Project Manager to lead these fascinating and fast-paced jobs. Based out of the company’s Salt Lake City Regional Operations Center, the job involves about 25% travel and is a perfect opportunity for construction professionals who have a passion for church projects and/or interest in playing a role in developing a delivery method.

“It can be a selling point for anyone who wants to work with the church as a passion project,” said Bill Rudder, Vice President and Religious & Cultural Division Leader. “But also, this is a new delivery system. It's not something that's widespread in any industry. So, we're really developing a program and a delivery model that's different than what people have done before.”

A modular temple project in progress.

Since becoming JCLDS leader in 2018, President Russell Nelson has announced 100 new temples. In concluding the church’s general conference in April, he announced 17 more.

“What we’re doing is beyond design-build in the sense that it’s a new level of integration. That's been exciting to people. The vision is doing something that no one's ever done before so we can do it much faster and more efficient for the church as they continue to grow.”

On a DMC project, modular building components are fabricated off-site in a manufacturing facility, then shipped to project sites for assembly. Advantages include shortened schedules, cost savings, improved safety, higher quality and greater environmental sustainability.

Temples generally encompass 10,000 square feet and are expandable. Accompanying patron housing facilities can range from 12,000 to 20,000 square feet.

“You can’t stick-build them at the rate they want them built,” Rudder said. “So, we’ve been working to find a process that's repeatable throughout the world to get the same level of quality.”

As an example, Haskell recently completed a modular patron housing facility in Kinshasa, the largest city in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in seven months. The project would have taken three years using conventional construction methods.

In addition to offering a highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, Haskell operates with the direction of six strategic pillars, the first of which is to “Provide Team Members the BEST Job of Their Lives.” It offers a robust benefits package that includes a 401k match and an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which creates stock ownership for every full-time team member.
