Reliable and Professional


Our philosophy is simple: high quality work, delivered on time, exceeding client expectations. We work diligently on every project to ensure that our clients experience the minimum disruption and get lasting value by doing things right from day one. We also believe that a contractor must be faithful to the design process throughout all phases of the project while emphasizing quality of workmanship, attention to detail, and maintaining a positive relationship between architect, client, and contractor.

Principal Involvement

To achieve your goals, our clients get experienced, responsive principal involvement on every project that provides comprehensive oversight, fast turnaround times, and attention to detail. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that quick answers and action are just a phone call away and your project isn’t handled by inexperienced personnel. We use our combined 100+ years of construction experience and extensive relationships to improve project delivery and handle issues when they inevitably arise.

Quality Workmanship

We only have longstanding licensed union and non-union sub-contractor relationships that have a history of delivering. Our sub-contractors have worked with us an average of 5 years and do so because we provide realistic quotes that enable them to earn a fair wage for doing high quality work. We only use sub-contractors who don’t cut corners and are looking to do business with us for many years to come. For our clients that means no surprises in quality of work and dependable delivery even when things are “busy”.

Client Focused

We understand that our clients have businesses to run, buildings to manage, or their clients to make happy. The last thing they want is a project that is unnecessarily delayed because of lack of proper planning or delays in vendor delivery. When issues arise, R/J Builders takes a holistic approach of long term relationships: we’ll fix the issue and make it right. We want every client to be a reference and we’ll do what it takes to make every project a showcase project. We want you to be ecstatic about your new commercial space so that every R/J Builders client is a reference client.
