PRIDE Industries Brings Cost Savings to 34 Buildings

The Judicial Council of California (JCC) manages the largest court system in the country—serving about 12 percent of the total U.S. population, more than 40 million people.

Situation

The JCC originally selected PRIDE Industries to provide facility operations and maintenance services to all of its courthouses in Northern California. Using an inclusive workforce, PRIDE Industries delivered services so efficiently that the JCC expanded the contract to include its Southern California properties. This expanded contract covers 34 buildings, representing 2.7 million square feet.

Solution

In 2014, the Judicial Council of California (JCC) awarded PRIDE Industries its Northern California operations and maintenance contract. During the next five years, PRIDE Industries improved operational efficiency and reduced electricity consumption, saving the JCC more than $3M dollars. Based on this success, in 2020 the JCC expanded its contract with PRIDE Industries to include its Southern California operations, which more than doubled the number of buildings and the square footage under maintenance.
