For our most recent Spotlight, the BLDUP team sat down with Maurice Wasserman, Vice President with ClearSite Construction Services Tampa to discuss the importance of cleaning at various stages of the construction process along with how the firm is bringing technology to this often low-tech industry.

 

BLDUP: Tell us about ClearSite, your services, and the areas/types of projects you serve.

Maurice Wasserman: ClearSite Construction Services is a minority women-owned business that provides post construction cleaning services (Rough, Final and Touch Up). And we also provide Window and Pressure Washing services as well. We focus on all projects small or large across the whole state of Florida. We primarily have been focusing on large multifamily projects as we are seeing a flux of these types of new construction projects. All of our staff are ClearSite employees and unlike competitors, we do not subcontract any of our work. This allows for higher-quality training and less downtime on projects.

BLDUP: Discuss the importance of high-quality cleaning services at various points during the construction life cycle. 

Maurice Wasserman: As the end of each construction project approaches, final cleaning is key in ensuring a smooth turnover to a new tenant or building ownership. At Clearsite, we have a project manager and team lead on every project to ensure communication between our staff and the project team to effectively provide high-quality cleaning needed for efficient turnovers. Often we receive calls from GCs who selected the lowest-cost cleaning firm with disastrous results. Clearsite can mobilize a crew within 24 hours to accommodate these last-minute needs. 

BLDUP: Many general contractors & building owners may have run into issues with unreliable cleaning crews in the past, how is ClearSite different and how do you ensure predictable, high-quality service on every job? 

Maurice Wasserman: One thing I have noticed is that overcommunication is not a bad thing when it comes to working with any general contractor. Therefore, since I come from a tech background, I developed a custom app through Notion.so, to provide greater transparency for GCs. The app provides reports daily that explain who was on site, what they were doing (see example below), and if they run into any issues. These “clean logs” can be emailed to project teams daily or uploaded directly into platforms like Procore.  This technology ensures our work is quality and is being done properly. We also are another set of eyes when it comes to punch list items that they might have missed. Bringing this technology into what has historically been a technically challenged field sets ClearSite apart from competitors.

BLDUP: What recent projects are you most proud of/excited about?

Maurice Wasserman: The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Naples is a boutique collection of 128 residences, made all the more desirable by spacious layouts, captivating seaside and sunset views, a secluded park, and The Vanderbilt Club — a 28,000-square-foot residents’ retreat. We worked with Suffolk Construction on final cleaning for these luxurious residences. 

We are also working with JE Dunn on their Belpointe project in St. Petersburg, a mixed-use development to include over 150 apartments and 15,000 square feet of retail space.

BLDUP: Your firm has grown rapidly over the past 3 years in business, what is your vision for the future of the company? 

Maurice Wasserman: We will continue to improve our processes to be more efficient and continue to build on our technology to make sure our customers are fully aware of what we are doing daily. Communication and transparency will continue to be cornerstones of our business.
