Jerry McDonald, President ~ GT McDonald Enterprises, Inc.

“We are happy to offer this letter of recommendation for JA&M Development Corp. JA&M Development Corp. has successfully completed the New River Village Phase III Luxury Apartment project with our firm and we continue to work together on the Palau Sunset Harbour Condominiums. As a structural concrete subcontractor, JA&M Development Corp’s workmanship, schedule maintenance and continued cooperation has been an invaluable element to our projects, from bidding to execution, we have had a good and rounded, working relationship each step of the way. The total of completed and currently contracted work with JA&M Development Corp. is just under 14 million and our expectation is that total will be exceeded in the near future. In addition, the administration of requisitions to our office and supplying the required releases for suppliers and subs is most efficient. We recommend JA&M Development Corp. as an excellent structural concrete contracting firm.”

John T. Hay III, Construction Manager ~ Fortune Construction

“JA&M Developing worked as a subcontractor for our company on the Joe Moretti Preservation Phase 1 Project located at 240 SW 9th Street. Their scope of work included concrete and masonry scopes which also included rebar and post tension installation. They maintained our project schedule and at some points were ahead of schedule. They maintain professionalism and always attempted to do their best. They were always available and willing to discuss any needs or concerns that would come up. We are pleased with the work that they did on this project and would recommend them for any project that you may have.”

Felix Braverman, P.E. ~ PHG Builders, Inc.

“This letter shall serve as a recommendation letter for Johnel Mecias and Annie Mecias of JA&M Developing Corp. They have worked on several of our projects, all completed before the expected times. They were always cooperative and flexible to changes to the project if needed as well. Their scope of work included mostly furnish and installation of concrete, post tension work, masonry work, rough carpentry, and structural steel as well as general contracting supervision when requested.”

Danny Ezzeddine, Director ~ City of Plantation

“I have known JA&M Developing Corp. for the past year. They are the contractor on three projects with the City of Plantation. JA&M has exhibited an outstanding performance in meeting the City’s goals. They have diligently worked closely with City staff to resolve problems during construction. Their cooperation arid proactive approach made it possible to complete the projects within the defined time and budget set by the City. It has been a pleasure working with JA&M and we consider them part of our team. We are looking forward to having them working with us on future projects.”

Rudy Rivero, Pastor

“We are pleased to recommend JA&M Developing Corp. for the project that we have hired them for called New Dawn Church. They are the General Contractors for the job and have helped us in countless ways to be able to stay within our budget by working with the engineer and architect in the design and construction. The project is a one story 10,000 square foot building with an estimated cost of 1.2 million dollars. We are very grateful for the work that they have done and have found them to be extremely professional and timely in their work. We have been pleased with their work and would recommend them for any job that you may have.”
