What Our Clients Say

“I would like to take this opportunity to once again personally thank you for all of your help and expertise in the construction of my new optometric medical office at The Medical Pavilion at Trinity. You have allowed me to achieve my dream of owning my own office in a hospital setting and constructed an absolute gorgeous facility. Due to your extensive experience in building medical facilities and hospitals, I feel that my office was extremely well built with the highest quality materials and labor, along with the ease of performing all of this construction within a hospital setting with no disruption in the schedule of completion. Also, due to your streamlined process of construction, the entire construction process went along smoothly and above and beyond my expectations. The compliments I receive from other tenants in the building and patients are overwhelmingly positive. I especially want to thank you for your extremely detailed attention to every aspect of the construction process that I know I would not have received from an average contractor. Your team certainly went above and beyond what was required to get the job done. Without reservation, I would recommend your company and all individuals involved in my project to others considering any medical office or other type of construction project. Please feel free to have anyone contact me directly and promptly if they would have any need for a reference regarding your fabulous work. Thank you again.”

“I could never thank you enough for all you have done to make a long time dream come true. As the Diocesan people say, the school is now a new Taj Mahal! I have never been involved in a restoration/construction before – this was all new to me – and because of the quality people from JD&E and those sub-contracted, I must say the entire experience was a very positive experience.”

“While this was a very difficult 2.5 million dollar project, the leadership and professionalism that your company has shown and your efforts has made this one of the most enjoyable projects to administer that we have been involved with at Marshall University. Also, Mr. May and myself would like to state that the quality of construction on this project is unmatched in any other facility that we have been associated.”

“All aspects of the project were completed with great craftsmanship and according to instruction. The timely completion of the project was critical to Wheeling-Nisshin’s aluminized steel production and not only did JD&E meet the schedule but, rather superseded the estimated completion date as much as one week.”
